Phenomenal large pizzas, roasted meats, seared vegetables or even fresh bread. Flame-cook epic meals outdoors with wood, charcoal or gas.
With multiple fuel options, try using wood and/or charcoal for the joy of the pizza purist experience and a subtle wood-fired flavor, or opt for a low-maintenance cook with an Ooni Karu 16 Gas Burner.

How do I setup Ooni Karu?
All Ooni pizza ovens are portable and do not require any installation. You simply need to open the oven legs, light the wood inside the oven and you will be ready to cook in minutes!
What kind of fuel can I use with my Ooni wood fired oven?
Pizza Pro Firewood Logs are made from 100% mango wood, free from chemicals or additives, and perfectly sized for Ooni Karu 12, Karu 12G and Ooni Karu 16 pizza ovens. You can purchase Pizza Pro Firewood here.
Mango tree wood, which is easily available in most parts of India is the best choice for wood fired ovens. In the mountains of north India, mango tree wood may be difficult to find. In this case Oak wood is a good choice.
We recommend using pieces of hardwood approximately 15cm/6in long as shown below.
How do I light my oven using wood?
First, check that your Ooni wood fired oven is ready to be fired up: Remove the chimney cap, open the chimney vents and put on the door.
Remove the fuel hatch and place a small stack of burning charcoal in the fuel tray, followed by a layer of wood.
Once you have a nice fire going, add more fuel. Close the hatch and leave your oven to preheat for 20-30 minutes. Keep an eye on the fire and add more fuel as needed. Remember, adding too much at once can smother the flame.
You can use charcoal and wood separately, but we love combining the two for an even heat and unbeatable flavour.
If you have a question which has not been answered, please feel free to get in touch with us.
Authenticity. Cooking with wood and charcoal gives food a wood-fired flavor that can't be replicated.
Control. The Ooni Karu 16 Gas Burner gives you additional temperature control and convenience.
Flexibility. Choose and change your fuel as you wish! Gas for consistency and low-maintenance cooking, and wood/charcoal for smoky, aromatic flavor.
Makes ALL other pizza ovens obsolete!!
You can actually make an amazing pizza or New york-style pizza with this oven!
I'm glad this is finally in India, great job Pizza Pro
We use it every night!
I bought this for my husband for his birthday and he absolutely LOVES his Ooni! We later added on the propane option which works great when we want to cook a pizza quickly. I love that the legs fold down, it fits a 16 inch pizza, and is easily transported for pizza making get togethers with family and friends. Highly recommend the Karu!
Makes great pizza and is easy to clean. Looking forward to expanding it's use beyond just pizza. Great product that our family will enjoy for many years to come.
Mouthwatering dishes to make with your Ooni pizza oven, from breakfast to dinner and so much more than just pizza!
