Among the sundry forms of comfort we’ve sought during the pandemic, perhaps nothing soothes faster than a piping-hot pizza. But instead of delivery, consider taking matters into your own hands with a portable pizza oven, designed to make enjoying Italy’s universally beloved export that much more enticing. Gozney’s Roccbox can cook a perfectly-crispy-crust Neapolitan pie in just 60 seconds, with its up-to-950-degree oven and cordierite stone floor. Last year, after the Illinois-based brand saw a steep increase in demand for its products, it released the Roccbox Wood Burner 2.0, a detachable device that adds oomph to its signature oven, with its ability to reach top temperatures even faster, and increased capacity for fuel. Other effective oven contenders include the Ooni Pro, which can be heated with charcoal, wood, or gas, and Camp Chef’s double-walled Italia Artisan Pizza Oven, built to mimic the performance of the wood-fired brick variety (it can also be used to bake bread or roast meats). However you decide to top and cook your pie, making pizza at home, like listening to a favorite album, is all about the journey—becoming that much more satisfying with each slice.
