If anyone has mastered the art of at-home entertaining, it’s the Italians. They proved their expertise with the invention of aperitivo hour and backed it up with the creation of several sparkling cocktails like Limoncello Spritz, Bellini, and Aperol Spritz. Not to mention their affinity for family-style long lunches starring homemade and traditional recipes.

Above all, the Italians are credited with creating the crowd-pleasing party staple, pizza. Since its Neapolitan origins in the early 1800s, the simple and delicious dish has evolved from a flatbread seasoned with garlic and tomato into a diverse world favourite.

No matter how it’s served—with pineapple, prawns, or pepperoni—one thing remains constant. A dedicated pizza oven is the only way to achieve that signature harmonious blend of spicy meats, bubbling cheese, and golden, crisp crust.

Whether you’re hosting an Italian-inspired dinner party complete with refreshing Spritzes or craving a classic Margherita for a weekday lunch, the secret to mastering the perfect pizza is to invest in a pizza oven.
