Who is this Pizza Oven For?

If you’re likely to move your pizza oven from place to place, consider the Alfa 5 Minuti. It’s the perfect companion on camping trips, beach days, or family gatherings.

This is our favorite Alfa oven when it comes to portability. It weighs 160 pounds (we know what you’re thinking – there’s no way I can move that). However, it comes with a highly functional oven base. 

The base has a shelf for wood storage, a handle to push your oven around, and four professional casters with brakes. This makes transporting this appliance from destination A to B a breeze. 

And, you have two color options when selecting your base: copper or silver black.

Why Should You Buy the Alfa 5 Minuti Pizza Oven?

What makes the Alfa 5 Minuti Pizza Oven so great? Here are our favorite features: 

  • – Portability. The rolling cart is a game-changer when transporting heavy wood-fired ovens; however, the tough base makes it easy to take from place to place. 
  • – Fast Heating Time. In just 15 minutes, this appliance will be ready to cook pizza, meats, vegetables, cookies, pasta, and more! 
  • – Customized Options. You can buy the Alfa 5 Minuti in two configurations: the oven and the base or just the oven. If portability isn’t important to you, the stationary option will be sufficient. However, if you’re leaning towards a mobile option, go with the rolling base.
  • – Refractory Tiling. Part of a great pizza-making experience and flavor is the high heat. Traditional home ovens can’t achieve these temperatures because they don’t have refractory tile on the cooking floor. These tiles let us fire up ovens to scorching temps that regular appliances can’t handle. 
  • – Timeless Aesthetic. There’s no denying the stainless steel design of this oven is very attractive. It has wood finishes and a powder-coated color that further accentuates its looks. You’ll be cooking in fashion with this hot pick, no matter where you go!
  • – Removable Door. You can easily remove the oven door, giving you the option to cook food to a crisp or roast it with the door and drought closed. 

These features are integral in enjoyable cooking experiences that lead to quality food in a matter of minutes. So, what are you waiting for? Give this Alfa appliance a try today and see what all the hype is about!

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.
