Choosing the right pizza maker for your needs
A pizza maker gives you the freedom to bake authentic Italian pizzas at home that look and taste exactly like the ones from your favourite pizzeria. With modern features to make cooking easier and faster, load your pizza dough with fresh ingredients and pop them in the appliance for fail-safe pizza with a crispy base and golden top. Before you choose your pizza maker, these factors can help you buy one that’s right for your needs:
Ease of use
Benefits of owning a pizza maker
Like other modern kitchen appliances, our pizza makers are designed to make cooking your favourite meals faster and easier with better results. Check out some of the benefits you could enjoy just by adding one to your cookware collection:
Fast-track the time it takes to bake a pizza
Take the guesswork out of how long to cook your pizza with a timer and viewing window
Easily control the heat with adjustable settings
Achieve an even, crispy crust and perfectly golden top every time
Create artisan pizzas that look and taste incredible
Wood fire vs electric pizza maker
For many, a wood fired pizza is the gold standard in authentic Italian pizza. Wood fire ovens create pizzas with a crispy base, perfect texture and unique flavour from the smoke and flames. The problem is that these ovens are very expensive and not practical for most households.
The best pizza ovens emulate all of the features of a real wood fire pizza oven but are compact and affordable. Our stainless steel Breville Smart Oven Pizzaiolo mimics the three types of heat you get in a brick oven - conductive, radiant and convective. With the Element iQ System, you’ll be able to recreate the same baking environment used to create all your favourite pizzas, including wood fired, New York and Neapolitan pizzas.
Smart features to look for in an electric pizza maker
Our innovative electric pizza makers are equipped with handy smart features that make them a breeze to use, such as:
Adjustable temperature settings
A viewing window
Heat light indicator to let you know when your pizza maker is preheated
Paddles for easy lifting of your pizza once its done
Deflector shield to protect delicate toppings

The MasterPro Ultimate Pizza Oven is easy to use and features a ceramic stone top and removable ceramic base for even results every time.

Another excellent option is the Wolstead Pro Rapido Pizza Oven with upper and lower heating elements and a removable pizza stone that lets you cook traditional pizza with a golden crust and melted toppings.
