Stovetop Ceramic Pizza Oven Bakes Perfect Pizza

Traditional style, exceptional taste!Traditional style, exceptional taste!
There's nothing like the taste of oven-roasted pizza, but who has a ceramic pizza oven at home? Well, maybe you do - thanks to the handy home version by Hakuho!



Hakuho means "white phoenix" in Japanese; it's the ring name of one of Sumo's two reigning Yokozuna champions. It's also the company that makes this ingenious home pizza oven.

The Hakuho Pizzeria doesn't just look like a traditional Italian brick pizza oven, it bakes a perfect pizza pie even your Mama Mia would love. It even leaves a neato cobblestone impression on the underside!



What Hakuho has done is to give you the tools you need to make the perfect pizza - right on top of your gas range. Big or small, pizza ovens work pretty much the same way. Heat from below crisps the underside while steady, reflected heat warms the top without drying out the cheese & toppings.

Sure, you can only bake one 10" diameter pizza at a time, but that's no problem - unless you're running a pizzeria out of your apartment.


All the parts you need are included in the approximately $90 pricetag so all have to do is whip up some pizza dough, load it up with cheese and your favorite toppings, and then slide it into a pre-heated Hakuho oven for about 20 minutes. (via Tokyomango and Kaiden Watch)

No wood-coal oven, no pizza flavor

Seriously, the Pizza flavor is given only by cooking it in wood-coal ovens, using high quality oil, wheat flour and real mozzarella (not that sealed dry thing they sell at supermarkets) and good water.
That doesn't mean you can't get a tasty one with different ingredients or cooking it in this mini oven, but it would not give Pizza the very distinctive flavor of a wood or coal oven, which is something worth alone a trip here in Italy.
