Mmmm... just think, pizzas on tap. If space or time is at a premium then the 5 Minuti outdoor double pizza oven by Alfa Pizza is the one for you. As the name suggests this handsome Italian-made wood fired pizza oven can be ready for action in just five minutes with a temperature of 300ºC+ produced by using just a couple of logs. It will then bake two flavoursome pizzas at a time every couple of minutes. However, you're not limited to just pizzas. The 5 Minuti excels at bread making and any other type of dish you would cook in your kitchen oven, including roasts. All helped by the internal pyrometer which allows you to accurately monitor the oven temperature which can then be controlled as desired by opening and closing the oven door to regulate the combustion air supply.
The main bodywork is made from hygienic easy-clean premium grade brushed stainless steel with the ceramic fibre insulated arched top powder-coated in dark grey or red for a stylishly modern colour contrast. The oven floor features hollow removable refractory tiles which, along with the arched roof, are designed to distribute the heat uniformly to create perfectly baked pizza bases with evenly cooked toppings. The cooking floor is a generous 600 x 500mm (24" x 20") and will easily accommodate two 10" pizzas. It has a lift on and off stainless steel door with stay cool wooden handle to make access to the large oven mouth both easy and safe.
Although this is an outdoor oven which has been specifically designed for ease of use in domestic applications it's superb build quality and ergonomic design detail reflect Alfa Pizza's four decade-long involvement with professional pizza baking in their home country as well as their global reputation for excellence in everything that they do. They even produce a regular magazine with handy hints and fail-safe recipe ideas so that you can learn to make the most of your Alfa Pizza outdoor oven.
The 5 Minuti oven comes as a 'table top' version with adjustable feet or alternatively you can specify a set of sturdy cart legs with rubber castors and strong practical stainless steel shelf which can also be used as a handy log store. This set also comes with a large rugged handle for lifting and safely wheeling the oven to your desired location. Remember, all pizza ovens can get extremely hot and in the interests of safety the manufacturer's instructions regarding the safe distances to combustible materials and particular ventilation requirements should always be strictly adhered to.
The 5 Minuti will be delivered to your home on a pallet (because with the cart leg set it weighs approximately a 100 kilos!) and will be ready for immediate use once the optional legs are simply attached with a couple of screws and the flue is slotted on. Once you get used to it, which won't take long, we believe the 5 Minuti oven is just as easy to use as your basic barbecue – and probably a lot quicker too.
