Have you ever noticed that we always gather our friends and families around food? Instead of going out for pizza, can you imagine sharing the experience of everyone designing and cooking their own hand-made pizzas? Having an authentic traditional Italian dome pizza oven is easier and more affordable than you think!
See below how Famosi owners make it easy to setup their wood-fired oven as the centerpiece of their outdoor living atmosphere - bringing their family, friends, and neighbors in style!
Most Common: Affordable Outdoor Kitchen Countertops
The hand-crafted Famosi features a 13 inch tall split double door gives that gives it the versatility to cook so much more than pizza - including breads, poultry, and various sized dishes.
Its rustic beauty is very much part of the appeal, so most people flaunt it - not hide it!
Our customers are very creative in how they 'build' the Famosi into their countertop. The most common methods are building a u-shape stand either by stacking landscaping blocks or traditional masonry with brick or stone on the outside.
Stacking Landscaping Blocks
This method is the easiest because it doesn't require mortar - you just stack the blocks in a u-shape that is the right width and depth to support your Famosi. Because the Famosi base is already a 2.75 inch concrete base, it is its own countertop - making the job even easier and budget friendly.
This method can really add style and beauty to the oven - while spending only a little more and putting in some extra effort.
You start by building an inner wall of cinder blocks and mortar. Once that is built, you surround that with brick or stone that fits your style.
Already Have an Outdoor Counter
If you already have an outdoor counter, you can instantly approve its looks and functionality just by setting a Famosi on top - DONE! (Shown: Famosi with stone face and stone surround)
Also Common: Built-in Pizza Oven
The traditional Terracotta Brick Arch and the Stone Arch both make stunning faces to your built-in pizza oven.
Built-in pizza oven consoles are as unique as you are. Need help designing one? Contact our team at firstname.lastname@example.org or 480-939-1868 to get started. Please have dimensions of your backyard space ready.
Things to Consider
The Famosi weighs about 1,200 pounds, so you have to make sure of two things:
1. Your countertop is built to support that weight
2. You have a method to get this oven on top of your counter. The Famosi is manufactured with steel eyelets in each corner which allow for easy hoisting. If you (or a buddy) don't have an engine hoist, shop crane, or some other method to lift this up, you may have to rent or buy one for this project (or get lots of buddies).
