I will be siting it over the weekend and (weather permitting), begin the process of seasoning next week.

Really looking forward to using it. I suddenly also have a queue of friends who are drooling in anticipation.

    When the Rustica was designed we looked to traditional designs that have of course been tried, tested and refined over hundreds of years. Armed with this knowledge we produced the PizzaForno. The fusion of modern processes (we employ techniques and materials that are utilised in the channel tunnel!) with traditional designs provides you with a solution that performs like a dream! Easy to handle light weight 85kg dome and 85kg base. (Dry Weight) A complex mixture of modern refractory materials provide a light, durable but above all efficient solution. We incorporate a steel needle into casting to reinforce the structure. A modular design means you can purchase only the components you require or a full package complete with stand, tools and wood! Everything you need to get started. Well, almost, you will need a match to light the fire! Our kit requires no construction. The stand is flat packed with easy assembly taking only a few minutes to put together. The only thing you need to do is lay two tiles on the base after it has been fired up and properly dry. At this point you can customise the look of your oven and change the tile for a design of your choosing. Of course this does not stop you using the the oven. The chimney is a standard 130mm diameter sleazily extended if needed.


A Sense of Scale

What’s in the full kit?

Our Rustica kit contains everything you need to make great wood fire cooked food and of course incredible pizza!

Incidentally our peels are made with an aluminum head and a wooden handle. These we believe are easier to use and more robust than wooden pizza peels. The small oven peel is specially made for us.

If you are having our stand then a firm base is needed. Grass will not support the weight it must be a solid foundation. Slabs, pavers, concrete, tarmac etc.

If you are not having our stand you will need a good strong base. A minimum of 700 by 800mm and around 1000 to 1100 high. It needs to be strong enough to support a total combined weight 200kg and be heat resistant.

What else is useful?

A set of our professional cookware is very useful. They are all metal so can be fully immersed in the oven. You can cook anything with this range. A large Paella pan, and 2 handled pans comprise the set. In addition we include a large pizza cutter and dough scraper.

An splitting maul or axe is indispensable for splitting timber down to size. We don’t sell these but they are readily available. 




Hi Paul

The pizza oven was my Best Buy of 2017, real success and talking point for numerous get togethers culminating in my grandsons birthday party , 40 pizzas made with selected toppings . Brilliant .

    Just wanted to tell you the pizza oven was delivered on Friday evening, great! It was assembled yesterday and has had 2 firings, up to 50c & 100c (cold before the second firing). Its covered now as we’re having heavy rain 🙁 Initial thoughts – easy assembly, great design and very attractive. (Happy man)

    Still building base structure and still a little way off finishing. But plan to have it finished by the end of the summer. Thanks for insulation tips. Party went well, cooked 20 pizza’s where I’d only cooked 1 previously the night before. Talk about cutting it fine! Oven looking super, few hairline cracks but I know that’s to be expected! Made dough last night, because tonight is pizza night before the weather changes. Away out to light this baby, love it I’ll stay in touch and send you some pics of the finished pizza area.
