Maybe you don’t want to go all-in on a pizza oven. You don’t have space in your yard or you don’t want to buy an entirely different set-up. If that’s indeed the case, the KettlePizza Pizza Oven is for you. It fits the charcoal or gas grill you already have. It sits on top and creates a chamber of convection heat that reaches the high temperature needed for an evenly-cooked pizza.

This model is for the aficionado. The Uuni 3 Wood Fired Pizza Oven heats up to professional pizza oven temps, over 900°, in 10 minutes. In two minutes you have a pizza ready and 5 minutes later, fish, meat, and veggies are done. Out of the box it uses wood pellets for fuel to create that authentic wood-fired pizza taste. But you can opt for a gas attachment if that is more accessible. This also cooks larger pizzas, about 13″, so if you’re cooking pizza for large groups, this is perfect.

It takes you longer to brush your teeth! It’s light enough to take anywhere and it has a built-in flame safety device that cuts off its gas supply if the flame is extinguished before the gas is off. If you want your pizza fast and just about anywhere, this is the pizza oven for you.
