Every pizza shop that wants to bake fresh-made pies will need an appropriately sized pizza oven. The number of pizzas you intend to bake a day will determine whether you need a simple countertop model or if you need something bigger.
Small pizza operations that do not expect to make that many pizzas in a day and have limited space should only need a countertop unit to perform their baking needs. Most countertop models only make pizzas up to 12 inches in diameter making them ideal for personal pan pizzas.
Larger pizza kitchens that want to serve freshly baked pies to a lunchtime crowd, a swarm of school children or a platoon of hungry soldiers will need a full-size pizza oven to get the job done. You can use a model that bakes with stone decks and produces a crispier, more traditional product, or you can opt for a unit that is more efficient and faster at making this beloved Italian food.
