Prefab Pizza Oven
In their workshop in California’s Sonoma Valley, the artisans at Mugnaini marry their own custom-made steel frames with precast components from renowned Italian oven maker Valoriani before wrapping the assembly in stucco, sheet metal, or a custom material of your choice. The combination of time-tested European materials and modern American technology produces ovens that are easy to install and use. If a full-size wood-fired oven doesn’t fit your home or your lifestyle, the new Piccolo 60 portable gas oven may be the perfect way to get your start in pizza making. Mugnaini’s masonry kits are at the other end of the spectrum as starting points for completely custom ovens. With the numerous sizes, shapes, and finish materials available, it’s best to contact the folks at Mugniani and perhaps even take one of their introductory classes to figure out which oven suits you best.
- Preassembled ovens ship ready to install in your house or outdoor kitchen
- Steel oven stands put ovens at a comfortable height for cooking
- Portable gas oven: $3,750; preassembled ovens with steel bases start at $5,750; Masonry oven kits: $2,550 – $4,950
Preassembled Mugnaini ovens stand alone and are ready to use once you’ve found a spot for them in your home. Or, like the masonry kits, they can be built into your outdoor or indoor kitchen.
Each preassembled oven consists of a number of proprietary hand-built and precast components, and can be left for you to clad or wrapped in a variety of custom materials.
