Alfa Ovens has been around since 1977. All of their ovens are handmade in Italy, among them the Alfa 4 Pizze Countertop Pizza Oven. 

If we know one thing about Alfa Ovens, it’s that each of their ovens are designed with traditional concepts in mind. After all, some of the best foods are cooked using burning logs and a refractory tile cooking surface. Alfa combines these methods with their Alfa Forninox technology which lets chefs reach high cooking temps in as little as 20 minutes. This allows users to achieve smoky flavors within foods quickly.

Who is this Pizza Oven For?

Do you enjoy outdoor cooking? Would you consider yourself a ‘foodie’? If so, this pizza oven is for you. Users can make meals beyond pizza with this oven, such as meats, pasta, or cookies. Basically, anything you can make in a traditional oven, you can make here. The difference? It will taste 10X better.

The Alfa 4 Pizze is a residential appliance, but it definitely packs some commercial qualities like the high temperatures (up to 1000℉) or the ability to cook a large pizza in seconds. We will say right off the bat that this oven is heavy, therefore, if you’re looking for a portable oven you’re better off with a lighter Alfa oven.

Whether you’re a pizza enthusiast or want to bring something new to your weekly cookouts, the Alfa 4 Pizze Countertop Pizza Oven delivers in terms of taste, quality, and aesthetics.

Why Should You Buy the Alfa 4 Pizze Countertop Oven?

Our team was impressed with the Alfa 4 Pizze for several reasons. For starters, nothing compares to the taste of wood-fired pies. We received a rustic cooking experience that was not only simple but resulted in evenly cooked pies. 

Quality pizza ovens are designed to trap the heat and flavor of burning wood, which is then passed over to the foods cooked within the cooking chamber. When it’s not properly insulated, heat will sneak out through crevices, and pizzas won’t cook as evenly or as crispy. This isn’t the case with the Alfa 4 – you’ll receive deliciously cooked pies every time. 

Another important reason this Alfa oven is a top contender is because of its large capacity. We fit 4 pizzas inside its cooking surface of 32″W x 24″D. So if you’re hosting a large gathering, you can rest assured that no one’s going hungry. Not only does it have a large capacity, but it churns out 14 pizzas every 15 minutes. You seriously can’t beat that!

Our Verdict

This brings us to the end of the Alfa 5 Minuti review. Our only concern is that because of the weight of this appliance, even with the rolling base, some people may struggle to wheel it out. Perhaps having two handles (one on each side) will make the process easier. Other than that, we love everything about this oven, from its fast cooking times to portable features.
