Review: PizzaQue Portable Pizza Oven

By tank

Pizzacraft has two models of their Pizzeria Pronto product line: the stovetop pizzeria pronto and the portable outdoor pizzeria pronto. You can find a review of the stovetop oven here, and we will take a look at the portable outdoor oven in the following review. The big difference between the two is that the outdoor portable oven works with a propane tank. This helps it achieve temperatures up to seven hundred degrees (fahrenheit) which is higher than any conventional home oven, as well as the pizzeria pronto stovetop oven. Being able to achieve the highest temperature (within safety regulations) when cooking pizza is one of the things that makes pizzeria-style pizza so good, and one of the biggest differences between homemade and pizzeria-style pizza.

Pizzacraft PizzaQue PC6500 Outdoor Pizza Oven

Heats Up to 700°F

The PizzaQue Portable Pizza Oven attaches to a propane gas tank which helps it achieve temperatures up to seven hundred degrees (fahrenheit). Higher oven temperatures allow the pizza to be fluffy on the inside while being crispy on the outside.  Restaurant pizza is cooked at temperatures as high as a thousand degrees (fahrenheit), so having the ability to achieve the highest heat while cooking your pizza gets you closer to making the best pizza possible in the comfort of your kitchen, backyard or even tailgaiting!


Preheats in 15 minutes

Another great advantage is the time it takes to preheat the oven.  Conventional ovens can take considerable time to get up to temperature and ready to use, especially when using a pizza stone.  The PizzaQue is ready for use in fifteen minutes, which makes it a great option to use for a weeknight dinner.  Having some pre-made pizza dough readily available (such as the method mentioned in this book) makes this an attractive product to have for coming home, firing up the oven, and having dinner started and finished in no time.

Pizzacraft PizzaQue PC6500 Outdoor Pizza Oven


This is one of the most popular outdoor grilling products on the market.  Reviews are mostly positive, receiving 4.7 stars out of 5 on Amazon.  Many people love the portability of the grill and have noted how great it is to use for tailgating.  Some suggested getting a pizza peel or using your own as it doesn't come with one, and you'll need one for inserting and removing the pizza.  Others have mentioned that the opening of the oven may feel a little small, but just takes some getting used to.  By and large the reviews are positive, and many like this oven compared to others in its category.


The PizzaQue is a great product able to boast high temperatures and the ability to cook a pizza in six minutes, making it a great weekday companion for home, and a nice grill to have for throwing a party and making restaurant quality pizza  The size and portability also make it a must-have for tailgating and outdoor events.  This is one to consider adding to your arsenal.
