[The Bay] Breville Pizzaiolo $879.97

It's back on sale at $879.97, down from $1099.99, not the inflated $1299.97 they show. It is pricey, but I am tired of cardboard Gluten Free takeout pizza, and store bought ones are $9 and up. I always end up adding my own ingredients anyway.

https://www.thebay.com/product/breville ... 52310.html

This brushed stainless steel oven is the first domestic countertop oven to hit 750°F and cook an authentic wood-fired style pizza in 2 minutes. It replicates the three types of heat generated by a brick oven - conductive, radiant and convective. Includes one product unit, one pizza peel, one pizza deep dish pan & one 12" pizza stone deck.

Good if you have a weekly pizza habit and the space to store this - doesn't take long for this to pay for itself.

Thanks OP. I've been considering one of these for a long time, and since my Ooni Koda 16 has been on backorder so long that I'm not sure I'll get it before winter sets in, I might pick it up at this price.

Brave to post this when it always spawns a dozen pages of people feeling the need to vocalize their confusion about why someone would spend the money, but I appreciate it. And for anyone who would rather buy Dominos at 50% off (or full price)- definitely do that. There's almost no such thing as bad pizza, but that doesn't invalidate the value of these ovens.

I have the Ooni Koda 16 and can see the appeal (LOL) of one of these for indoor use. Takes a bit of setup to get the Ooni ready, as I don't have a dedicated space for it in my postage stamp Toronto back yard. But I do like the effort involved with making a pizza in the Ooni - it requires some technique vs slapping the pizza into the Breville and letting it do all the work.

How much are ingredients on a weekly basis? Need dough, sauce and ingredients. So roughly $5 per. Does that not almost equal to the cardboard ones in the frozen section? Obviously you get amazeballs pizzas

I have the space to "store" this but won't considering buying one unless I have the countertop space to leave it out..

Went to a demonstration when it first came out and was really impressed.

The most expensive part is the cheese and meats (dough and sauce is cheap), but you can make pizzas for less than $3.

Probably a nice machine and I'm sure works well. One thing it doesn't seem to mention is the max size of pizza and I suspect it's 8" which means personal size only.

I make pizza at home all the time and have gotten fairly good results by experimenting with different temperatures, oven levels and baking pans. Of course, I make the dough and sauce from scratch, that's a no-brainer. I found that a conventional oven at 500 degrees using a pizza stone in the bottom position and a screen (not a solid pan) for 13 minutes seems to make the best 12" pizza. One additional tip is to pre-heat the oven with the stone inside for at least 20 minutes to ensure the stone is as hot as the oven.

Initially, I made about six increasingly more edible pizzas before I was able to make one that was a fairly close facsimile to take-out. Since then, I've continued tweaking the cooking procedure to create the perfect crispy vs. soft crust by varying the cook time by plus or minus 30 seconds and the temperature level.


For a shade under a grand, I prefer to continue to tweak my procedure using maybe $100 in equipment until I have it perfect which I would suspect is equal what this purpose-built machine will do.

Do you mean the multiple references to a 12” pizza stone? It was pretty easy to find………

Let's do the math.

Total cost after tax is roughly $1000

If you have one pizza per week at $10 (because we're deal hunters and that would be my budget)
and let's assume when making your own pizza, the ingredients cost $5,
then each time you make a pizza you save $5.

$1000/5 = 200. That's 200 weeks of pizza. 52 weeks pear year, so to save $1000 and have the oven "pay for itself", you must make one pizza per week for roughly 4 years.

Will the product hold up for 4 years? Manufacturer's webpage says it only comes with a 2-year warranty.

$5 per pizza for ingredients is pretty aggressive as everything you would buy would be in bulk if you had one of these.
