Pizza ovens are climbing in popularity, and you know why? Because homemade pizza crafted with your favorite toppings always tastes better than delivery. Whether you prefer plain cheese, pepperoni, a mix of veggies or even Connecticut’s polarizing clam pizza, it’s easy to make at home. Well, it’s easy to make if you have one of these five pizza ovens. The best pizza ovens heat up fast, cook fast and cook evenly.

When you think of a pizza oven, you may think of the wood-burning type. Those will definitely add a smokey, delicious flavor to your pie. But many of the pizza ovens on this list are multi-fuel, meaning they can also use charcoal or gas.

That said, how is a pizza oven different from a regular oven? For starters, pizza ovens reach much higher temperatures than conventional ovens — up to 900 degrees Fahrenheit. The extra heat makes the best crust, the kind that’s crispy on the outside and moist and chewy inside. This high heat also cooks pizza in as little as 60 seconds. The faster it cooks, the less dry it tastes. And if you use a wood-fired oven, the woodsmoke adds to the flavor.

Pizza ovens are easy to use and require little to no cleanup since you use them outside. Take a look below at five of the best pizza ovens you can use to make the best pizza of your life. That’s not even an exaggeration. Soon, you’ll be kneading your own dough and trying out new flavor combinations to share with friends and family. (Psst! Try cooking a steak in a pizza oven as well. Trust me, it’s delicious.)

Most importantly, it reaches 950 degrees Fahrenheit in 15 minutes and cooks pizza in as little as 60 seconds. Additionally, its stainless steel body is insulated, and it has an extra thick baking stone and a patented flame keeper for maximum heat retention.
