    This might be a stretch but :)

    Anyone have any experience with these types of ovens ?

    I'm considering two models, one made in Portugal in stock and shipped from Ontario > Portable Wood Fired Pizza Oven For Patio, Deck, Catering

    The other direct from Italy with 5-7 business days delivery by Fedex > Portable wood fired pizza oven

    Very similar in size/construction/cooking heat and warm up periods, both roughly $1000 US including taxes and shipping.

    I understand a much more serious DIY traditional masonry oven can be had for close to the same price but this installation will be on a wood deck and the size is appropriate to my needs.

    IMAGE CREDITS TO THE MAKERS.

    This is the Portuguese model..

    No direct experience, but I began a shopping episode a few years ago.

    Am I not seeing a damper on the first one? I see there is a series of air inlet holes in the door, but don't see them on the second one. The second one appears to have a damper(ish) thing on the flue, and I think I would like the transparency in the door. Also, is the stand included?

    I know everyone thinks of Italy when they think pizza, but my people have been making bread in outdoor stone ovens for centuries and we know what we're doing, so of course, I'd go with the Portuguese one :D

    (Plus, I imagine fewer things can go wrong when shipping from Ontario vs shipping from Italy.)

    $1000?!

    Pretty sure I could build something similar for much less.

    I didn't realize saskatoon was a real place. I thought it was just a funny name people made up to poke fun at Canada.

    Hell no. That still involves me having to MAKE food; a task to be avoided at ALL costs.
