ID:	443602Hello everyone! I recently inherited a pizza oven that never got installed. I can’t find any branding and figured I’d try here. I’ve always wanted a pizza oven in our new outdoor kitchen but this looks like a big job. I’m sure I can find all the tips, but if anyone has any tips or mistakes NOT to make, please let me know.

    Hi Zander,

    Welcome to the forum. Maybe someone else can help you with the brand. My bet is that it is a "one off" home made. "Inherited" sounds like FREE! My advice is to is to set in place on your patio and fire it up

      Thanks Gulf. With a closer look, it looks used (soot marks inside) and the widow told me it was a commercial unit they were going to use but couldn’t. Yes it was free she just wanted it out of their basement asap. I’m in the researching process now as to how to build a base and surround to support this behemoth! I was alittle confused with the simple gas valve and ignition button. I didn’t see any other gas valves for fine tuning the temperature.

        Gas! Oops, I didn't see the valve in the lower left corner until now after a closer look. I thought it was wood fired. Gas is above my paygrade. Hopefully it can use both.

        I was a little confused with the simple gas valve and ignition button. I didn’t see any other gas valves for fine tuning the temperature.
        That is a big red flag for the gas option! You definitely need to get with a professional and check your local codes before operating this oven with the gas option.

          ZANDER954 I moved your thread to the proper sub-forum. The Gas and Other section is a new addition to this forum. Your thread is only the second to be added to this section. Please note both the warning and the link to the forum's disclaimer at the top of the page.

          There should also be a proper flame failure device installed that has been engineered for that exact size type. The soot that you see may be from the drying (break in) process. The manufacturer may have done this for the customer prior to delivery. Hopefully someone on the forum is familiar with this design and can help you find the manufacturer.

              Check out some of the Univex pizza ovens. It may be one of their earlier models.. Some striking similarities in the overall shape and construction.

                Yeah I wondered the same thing. I wonder if the gas is just a wood starter? The burner unit is crescent shaped and alittle under a quarter the length around the dome inside. Univex has some units that do gas or wood and utilizes a small burner. Maybe I reach out to them and see. Thanks for the follow up!
