The Lisboa Brick Pizza Oven is as traditional as it gets. Made from refractory bricks and a concrete base, users will enjoy durability and simplicity all in one. However, after trying, testing, and reviewing this pizza oven, we’ve determined it’s intended for a specific crowd in mind.
Read on for a complete product review of the Lisboa Pizza Oven and to learn if it’s right for you!
The Lisboa Brick Pizza Oven is for pizza chefs and enthusiasts that want to add a traditional feel to their backyard. It’s a heavy, non-portable appliance fired by wood that requires proper use, care, and maintenance.
It’s worth mentioning that if you need a portable oven, the Lisboa Brick Pizza Oven is NOT for you. Weighing 1000 pounds, you better believe that once you install this into your outdoor kitchen, it’s not going anywhere without the use of a forklift.
There are several reasons to invest in the Lisboa Brick Pizza Oven. Here are the main takeaways:
The first thing that stood out to us about the Lisboa was its hardware. It’s pretty intense. The Lisboa Pizza Ovens dome and floor are made from refractory bricks. It sits on a 3” concrete base, so just place it over two brick walls, and it’s ready to go.
Then you have the stainless steel chimney flue and the aluminum oven door. You’ll enjoy the peephole in the door that lets you see your food as it’s cooking. We also received a thermometer included with this oven which measures temps up to 932°F.
Aside from the durable build of this pizza oven, you’ll like how quick pizza cooks. You’ll have two 12” pies ready to eat in a matter of 90 seconds. Heat up time takes 30 minutes – longer than most pizza ovens – however, once it’s hot, the heat retention properties are unmatched.
Not craving pizza? Consider some mouth-watering rotisserie chicken! The Lisboa has spitfire rotisserie roasting for added versatility (spitfire rotisserie sold separately). We used hardwood as the fuel source for this oven, but coal can also be utilized if you prefer.
The dome and floor are completely made from refractory bricks; there’s no need for additional insulation. We noted that heat was retained for hours (with the door closed, of course). And, the dome shape of this oven creates intense, non-damaging heat when cooking your meals.
Users are given complete design control when it comes to choosing a style that fits the rest of their yard. You can add your personal taste by painting the exterior, applying tile, or purchasing a base for your oven. We don’t mind the simple white look, so we’ll be leaving it as is for the time being, but know this is an option if you’re not too fond of the current color.
Weighing at 1000 pounds, you’ll definitely need a forklift to install this pizza oven. Equally important to note, Lisboa shares that because they’re hand-made, dimensions may vary. Therefore, 39” W x 39” D 29.5” H is just an approximation.
If you decide the Lisboa is for you, please invest in an “All-Weather Protection” cover. Since it will be sitting outside, you want to protect it from the outdoor elements.
