Gas vs wood fired ovens - what is the difference?

The most important factor in making amazing pizza is a super high oven temperature of 500˚C. All Ooni ovens can reach this temperature and cook awesome pizza in 60 seconds!

The only decision you need to make is which fuel type you want to use. Fuel choice is a matter of personal preference - all Ooni ovens are awesome in their own way!

You can choose between a multi-fuel pizza oven (wood/charcoal/optional LPG) or a gas-powered pizza oven (LPG only).

Gas/LPG is a highly convenient fuel source which allows you to fire up your oven with a single knob. The temperature of your Ooni can be easily maintained at a constant level using the temperature control knob. Using gas is great for when you want to get started cooking quickly and don’t want to worry about maintaining the temperature of the oven.

Wood and charcoal will give a subtle, wood-fired flavor. There is something special about wood-fired food - the smells and sounds can really add to the overall cooking experience. Cooking with wood is great for when you are craving the experience of  having a true wood fired oven in your very own home!

You can view the comparison chart below and see the exact differences between the entire Ooni Pizza Oven range.

If you still can’t make up your mind, we suggest going with the Ooni Karu 12 Multi-Fuel Pizza Oven + Ooni Karu 12 Gas Burner. This is our most popular oven and will let you have the best of both worlds!
