We are introducing a very classy new wood fired gourmet oven: the Etna Pietra.
Availability of this oven is limited.
The Pietra gourmet and pizza ovens are finished with natural Portuguese stone in sand or charcoal colour. The door arch is in stone as well and matches the colour of the dome stones. The oven door is in cast aluminium with a rustic look and has a thermo viewing glass.
The difference between the Pietra and the Classic.
The natural stones applied to the Pietra pizza oven gives it its unique character. Fitting the stones 1 by 1 is a challenge, and we are grateful to our Portuguese colleague for his endless patience in putting the puzzle together.
The dome shape and dimensions of the Etna Pietra are the same as our Classic Etna oven. Compared to our classic Etna with the stainless steel door, the Pietra edition has a larger door , it is 40cm wide. The chimney outlet is in stainless steel.
Also the Pietra pizza ovens have an additional layer of insulation because of the 15mm thick stones over the dome.
As our other brick pizza ovens, it is handmade with refractory bricks, then is covered with insulating cement, insulating blanket and another layer of insulating cement. It is then finished with sand or charcoal colour natural stone.
Cooking in the Pietra Gourmet Oven.
In this special edition gourmet and pizza oven you can cook your everyday family meal or a 3 course dinner, and of course the best wood fired pizza and homemade bread. You will receive Giuseppe's digital recipe booklet with the oven to give you a good head start. The Etna oven is our most versatile oven, you can cook everything you would normally cook in your kitchen oven but with that unique wood fired flavour. Imagine a simple veggie dish, roast potatoes and chicken or fish or a roast cooked in your wood fired oven... It turns the most simple recipes into a flavourful special meal.
The Etna Pietra looks fabulous as a stand alone or as part of your entertaining area. The stones of this outdoor oven protects it from the elements. However, just like with a bbq, we recommend using an oven cover if you don't use your oven for a while or in rainy seasons to avoid the bricks inside the dome from absorbing humidity. If you are installing your oven in your patio, under an awning or in your verandah, we have extension chimneys and chimney bends to go out or through the roof.
The Etna Pietra Sandstone and Slatestone are available in Melbourne and new stock for Brisbane will arrive in a few weeks. Make sure you reserve yours now as most are already ordered.

We’re absolutely loving our pizza oven! Pizzas every Friday night and we’ve also done a roast lamb which tasted amazing with a beautiful smokey flavour.Thanks so much, we’re really happy with our purchase!Sarah Kerr
We are very much enjoying the Pizza oven and love the cooking dishes as well ! Here is a photo of our 1 st Pizza everyone loved it ! Bernie & Wendy Wood
We have had many meals from our pizza oven the Etna and love it. Thank you, Debbie and William Merceica
We did a roast of lamb in our gourmet oven yesterday, it turned out pretty well for a first attempt. We also did a lasagne in it before and that was great too. This weekend I’m going to do a whole duck in it with asian spices as they lend themselves very well to duck. I will post it on your facebook page. Thanks Marianne
It has been a process getting pizza oven setup in between our work days (because of the way we wanted it built in) but it’s totally worth the planning. Really happy with the end result. Now just need to perfect the cooking. We’re slowly getting there and know it’s going to host great family get togethers for a long time. Thanks again for your awesome service!! Paula Blunt
I'm very happy with my wood oven, it is in position now and looks great. We did chicken which was a success, roasted pumpkin for the boss, and your lamb recipe was fabulous. Many thanks,Ted Jenkinson
We just wanted to say a huge thank you for our lovely Pizza Oven.We have finished set up and have used it several times. Every time has been enjoyable and the pizzas and food have been great!Thanks for the book with recipes and tips. We highly recommend your pizza ovens to anyone thinking of getting one, and so many of our friends love it!Merry Christmas - Laurence & Lorna Bennett
We are loving our new pizza oven Pietra. It’s stunning !!! It took some time to get in in place but it is so worth the effort. It now stands proud on its sandstone base.We’ve had great success with pizzas and sour dough bread baking ( both on the floor and in a Dutch oven inside the oven to see the difference). We are trying to use it every weekend, I don’t want it to just look beautiful, we want to use it! PS we’ve had loads of compliments on our oven, thanks to you !! It’s really a major…
We have had two pizza nights and one Sunday roast at Easter. The oven works great. So i'm sure we will get a lot more use out of it. Cheers, Mariusz Wiaczek, Melbourne
Hi Christi and Giuseppe We are very happy with our Pietra oven, it looks great. We have used it twice already and again this weekend for our son’s 21st! Set up was easy, we are lucky, we have a work truck with a crane on it, so used that to lift over fence and put into position. Will get some photos this weekend and put up on your FB site soon. Cheers Tim and Kylie Nottle Barham Tyre Service
Hi Christi We love the oven. The sand stone finish is beautiful. It has taken a little while to get pizza baking right. The hardest being getting the pizza off the paddle. So thank you for the helpful videos. We are looking at a bread making course at Red Beards in Trentham (best bread ever). Can’t wait for that. Here’s a photo of when the oven first went in Cheers Kellie O’Brien
We finally got the oven in position earlier this month and used it. Fantastic! I'd love to get recipes you would like to share from Giuseppe. And when I have chefs over to use the oven I'll get you some images. Remy Tancred
Hi Christi The Etna with the stones we got is very nice. Looks great in it's setting now it is all done. I cured it with no problems. Thanks Scott Kirk
