Pizza oven help pls

May 14, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I'm building a new house and have a pizza oven in the kitchen design. I'm debating whether I need a gas only or if gas/wood oven is best. My husband says we don't need the wood/gas option since its more $$ and it's a lot bigger too. I really want to have the option of wood- but I'm very confused. Please help! Any feedback is appreciated!

We designed the last "outdoor" Kitchen with the gas/wood pizza oven. Yes it is bigger but my customer wanted the "wood fired" pizza! Turned out great but took up a lot of room! You might think about your cooking needs and wants first. The wood ash is a bit messy too!

- check out Woodstone: http://woodstonehome.com/

They are one of the few companies that make a real pizza oven designed for residential installation. They have gas, wood and dual fuel options, but I have a strong wood oven bias.

Best wishes on your project!

- not to de-rail here, but I used a wood-fired grill to do pizza every week:

That's what I'm talkin about! Who's got the beer? No de-rail here, just time to eat!

We are buying from woodstone. We want a dual, but I'm debating now if I want to deal with the clean up and everything else that comes with wood stove.
Thanks to all for your comments-
Anybody else who actually has a pizza oven inside their kitchen please??

Yes good idea to get "user" feedback! If no input from residential, you might ask a restaurant about wood fired ovens?

@sofe, there are a lot of interior and kitchen designers on houzz. I think you will start getting feedback as this thread matures. You might also contact houzz professionals and ask questions via direct message if you are in a hurry.
