The Camp Chef Italia Artisan Pizza Oven Accessory 16-Inch is a stove top pizza oven that replicates the wood-fired oven construction in order to cook the perfect artisan style pizza. The Accessory is really easy to use and retains high temperatures really well in order to give you the perfect crisp pizza base.
So if you want to enjoy some hot, fresh pizzas at home then continue reading more about this Accessory from Camp Chef Italia that is definitely going to help you make the perfect pizzas with a crisp base and soft and gooey cheese on the toppings.
However, before we proceed with the detailed review, we would like to mention that this Accessory goes along well with the Camp Chef 16″ Cooking System stoves. I would not recommend using it at home as the stove from Camp Chef is pretty powerful in comparison to the ones you usually find at home.
So, if you do not have the Camp Chef stove, then you might want to look at some other stovetop pizza ovens.

What I liked about the Pizza Oven
1. It is a perfect accessory if you have a 16″ Cam Chef Stove and honestly, it heats up pretty fast and is open in the front in order to give the same wood-fired pizza oven feel.
2. The oven easily reaches high temperatures and retains it which is very difficult with most of the pizza ovens. This one from Camp Chef is designed really well as you can expect it to stay at high temperatures in order to give you teh perfect artisan style pizza.
3. The Pizza Stone is made up of cordierite ceramic which gets pretty hot and gives the pizza base an even cooking which is really important if you want that perfect base. Since the Pizza Stone is really hot you might want to be a little careful while inserting and removing the pizza.
4. You have a built-in temperature gauge that would indicate the temperature of the oven so that you can easily cook in it and monitor the temperature inside the oven.
5. Another great feature about cooking with this oven is that it does not dry the base, it does make it crisp on the outside but at the same time, it leaves the inside of the dough very moist and fluffy which is a plus point.
The ones that are in the lower price range, can make your pizza dry but this does not happen with this pizza oven.
6. The product is really light in weight so you can easily lift it and move it around. If you do not want to invest in a heavy countertop wood-fired pizza oven then you should consider getting this one here as it is light and portable.
7. The Pizza oven is easy to store and clean up as well. Since it is light in weight, you can easily, put it back in its box and once you are done with cooking making it easy to store.
8. The price is affordable for a pizza oven of this caliber. This is as fast as any wood-fired pizza oven and makes authentic pizzas which are as good as the ones in the restaurant.
9. You can use it for pizza parties as this pizza oven is large enough to cook more than one pizza at a time.
What I did not like about the Pizza Oven
1. The Pizza oven can be used as an accessory and you cannot use it as a standalone pizza oven. If you wish to do that, you have the Camp Chef Italia Pizza oven that you can use with a gas tank to make authentic pizzas at home.
2. The other limitation being you can use it with the Camp Chef Stove which is another bummer. This limits the usage of this oven and if you wish to use it with another stove, it needs to be as powerful as the one from Camp Chef
3. It is more like an outdoor pizza oven, so if you are looking for a pizza oven to be used at home then you might want to look at other options.
The Camp Chef Italia Artisan Pizza Oven Accessory 16-Inch is perfect if you have the Camp Chef stove as it would enable you to make artisan pizzas at home easily. One of the best add-on to the outdoor stove and well priced so that you can easily afford one.
This pizza oven works really well, as they easily retain high temperatures which are essential when it comes to cooking the perfect pizza. With the temperature control monitor, you can easily cook your pizzas at the right temperature without any hassles.
