Outdoor Oven Pizza Recipes

An outdoor oven can take your culinary experience to the next level, allowing you to bake bread, roast vegetables, grill meats, cook casseroles, delicious desserts, and of course, pizza! The high temperatures and even heat distribution create beautifully charred crusts and perfectly melted cheeses, giving your pizzas that authentic pizzeria taste. Whether wood-fired or gas-powered, an outdoor oven can take your pizza-making experience to the next level.

5 Cheese & Herb Combinations

Try out these combinations that offer a variety of flavors and textures, ensuring there's something for every cheese lover to enjoy!

Margherita Pizza

This classic pizza features fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced tomatoes, and basil leaves. The combination of creamy mozzarella and aromatic basil creates a simple yet flavorful experience

Goat Cheese and Rosemary Pizza

Tangy goat cheese pairs beautifully with the earthy flavor of fresh rosemary. Add a drizzle of olive oil and some garlic for extra depth of flavor.

Feta and Oregano Pizza

Salty feta cheese combined with the aromatic essence of oregano creates a Mediterranean-inspired pizza bursting with flavor. Add some sliced olives or cherry tomatoes for an extra punch.

Blue Cheese and Thyme Pizza

Bold and pungent blue cheese is balanced with the delicate flavor of fresh thyme. Add caramelized onions or figs for a sweet contrast.

Parmesan and Basil Pesto Pizza

Instead of tomato sauce, spread a layer of basil pesto on the pizza dough and top it with grated Parmesan cheese. Fresh basil leaves on top add an extra layer of herbal goodness.

Outdoor Kitchen designs often will incorporate an outdoor oven allowing homeowners to create memorable backyard dining experiences.
