For years we have been implementing pizza ovens in high-end kitchens. As time has evolved and the cooking channels are getting more viewers, a lot of clients are starting to really enjoy cooking and several have found that building a pizza oven within their kitchens is not only a conversation piece but a source of great fun with family and friends. How many of us get together with our “besties” and just want a fun, relaxing time where we can enjoy each other’s company, dress in relaxing clothes, crack open a bottle of Opus One, and just chill. Now take that mindset and enjoy making your own pizza in your own kitchen with your new built-in pizza oven. Everyone can place their own toppings and have fun doing so.
Clients have thoroughly enjoyed this, and our designers have specified different models throughout the years. Here is a unit we are absolutely crazy about. The new oven is a hybrid so to speak. It has the ability to work with both gas and wood and heats up in a fraction of the time. This new oven is manufactured by Wood Stone. It can be built right into your kitchen. The controls are electronic and should you have a smart home, you can connect it to your network and start it up before you get home so the pizza oven is ready when you get there..
The demand for outdoor kitchens has grown, and pizza ovens are at the top of clients’ wish lists. The Kalamazoo Outdoor Gourmet pizza oven is a favorite among Kitchen Designs’ clients. This product is considerably less costly and does a phenomenal job.
We just completed an outdoor kitchen for a client using the Kalamazoo Hybrid BBQ Grill and custom stainless cabinetry, and I will post those photos after we shoot the job. After preliminary reconnaissance on a number of pizza ovens for them and getting to know their family’s habits and needs, we came to the realization that the Kalamazoo outdoor pizza oven would be the best choice for their lifestyle.
In-home pizza ovens are great, and if you really learn to use the product, you will see that you can cook many things within these ovens aside from pizza. You can even cook fish and vegetables to perfection in it.
