It’s hard to find someone who doesn’t like pizza. I remember fondly pizza night at our house when I was growing up. My Mom would buy “pizza set-ups” that included a pre-made pizza dough, pizza sauce, cheese, and sausage. S & T Provision the spot on the southwest side of Chicago that we bought them is still open. They sell these infamous pizza set-ups, Italian beef, meatballs and more. Nothing fancy just good food. I keep myself from going there again now that I’m an adult. I fear my memory of that pizza may not live up to how it may taste today.
Pizza At Home
Many of us have tried to make pizza at home with limited success. Our home ovens don’t seem to get hot enough to get a good crispy thin crust without burning it. I even know a friend (an engineer) who tried to customize his home oven with bricks to retain the heat. It didn’t work and he needed to buy a new oven after that experiment.
We’ve tried pizza stones and pizza ovens you put in your gas grill. None of them were perfect. We have finally found a solution: the Pizzeria Pronto Outdoor Pizza Oven.
This little oven is perfect for creating an instant pizza party. It’s easily portable and lightweight. All you do is hook it up to a propane tank, heat it up for 10 minutes and start cooking your pizzas.
Check out this short video on the Pizzeria Pronto below.
The Heat is On!
This little pizza oven is really amazing. It heats up to 700 degrees in about 5 minutes. No need for big prep or planning. All you need is pizza dough, pizza toppings, and a hungry crowd.
Once you hook up the Pizzeria Pronto to your propane gas tank you turn it on, let it preheat and start cooking. The good news is that it takes about 5 minutes to cook a pizza. The oven stays nice and hot so there’s no need to wait. You can start cooking another one right away. The temperature indicator on the front of the oven lets you know how hot the oven is at all times.
PRO TIP: Have your ingredients ready to go. Once you start making your pizzas in the oven they cook fast. Don’t let your guests wait too long!
They also have a specialized pizza peel to make putting the pizza in the oven and taking it out much easier. Be sure to put some flour or cornmeal on the peel so the pizza slides off nice and easy onto the hot stones inside the oven.
Let’s Make Some Pizza
We started with an easy cheese pizza and it was delicious. I’m not gonna lie. Getting the hang of moving the pizza around in the relatively small oven takes some practice. Because the oven is so hot it’s easy to get some burnt edges if you’re not careful (or too busy sipping your cocktail). Some people like it that way, though so ask your guests!
Veggie pizza anyone? The really fun part is that if you put out all your ingredients and spices your friends can customize their own pizzas. Everyone is a pizza chef with this fun little oven.
Once you’ve had pizza you make yourself you won’t be ordering delivery pizza or buying frozen pizza again. It’s so fast, fresh and delicious. You can make your own pizza dough so special dietary requests like whole grain or gluten-free are a snap.
Many local supermarkets also sell pre-made pizza dough so if you’re in a hurry those work just fine too. You’ll typically be able to get several pizzas out of the pre-made store dough.
After you’ve enjoyed your homemade pizza with your friends splurge with some Italian desserts. It’s a perfect pairing! We were fortunate to have our Italian neighbors over for our first pizza party and they brought these wonderful Italian bakery goodies! So when friends ask what they can bring suggest dessert. That way you don’t have to worry about it.
The good news about this pizza oven is that it’s so lightweight and portable it can be used for tailgate parties, camping or any other on-the-go party. It easily connects with a 1 lb. propane tank as well as a full-size tank.
