The Pizzaiolo is the first domestic countertop oven to hit 750°F and cook an authentic wood fired style pizza in 2 minutes. It replicates the three types of heat generated by a brick oven – conductive , radiant and convective. Our Element iQ system also replicates the ideal baking environment for New York , Pan , Thin & Crispy and Frozen pizzas.
CONDUCTIVE HEAT FOR BASE CHAR CONTROL
The independently controlled , dynamic deck has been designed to sit directly above responsive incoloy heating elements. The natural cordierite stone is heated quickly and evenly to maintain the correct temperature , cooking the pizza base to the desired finish , with the right amount of char for the classic wood fired finish.
RADIANT HEAT FOR LEOPARD SPOTTED CRUST
Intense radiant heat is evenly controlled by Breville’s patent pending heating elements so you no longer need to rotate food while cooking. Heat intensifying parabolic reflectors maximize the efficiency of the top heating elements by reflecting the energy onto the crust. Integrated deck to door design moves the pizza closer to the elements.
CONVECTIVE HEAT FOR BAKED TOPPINGS
For wood fired and Neapolitan style pizzas , the optimized deflector shield has been designed to protect your fragile toppings from intense heat while reflecting radiant heat towards the crust to achieve the leopard spotted effect. For other pizza styles , inner element dynamic switching ensures that toppings , cheese and dough are evenly browned.
FAVORITE PIZZA STYLES AUTOMATICALLY
The Pizzaiolo comes with a range of preset cooking functions including the authentic “Wood Fired” , iconic New York , deep and delicious Pan pizza , bar style Thin & Crispy and even Frozen pizza setting. Impress family and friends and create authentic home made pizzas with recipes cards created by Breville to complement the Pizzaiolo.
CUSTOMIZE WITH MANUAL MODE
Fully customize how the oven functions. Manual Mode allows you to individually control deck and top temperatures and to select which heating elements are in operation. Choose the ideal heat: select Crust Only to achieve leopard spotting on a Neapolitan style pizza or Even Heat for other styles where toppings , cheese and dough are evenly browned.
HEAT RETENTION & SAFE USE
The combination of double-pane heat resistant front window and multi-material insulation surrounding the heat chamber ensures the extreme temperatures remain inside the oven cavity while keeping the outside surfaces as cool as possible.
