This pizza box delivers hot, crisped-just-right pizza, but it’s a portable stone-floor pizza oven that delivers straight from your back yard. The Roccobox Pizza Oven is a portable oven that can achieve temperatures up to 930 degrees and it can cook a Neapolitan pizza in 90 seconds. Using both a wood burner for the authentic experience and a gas burner for convenience, this pizza oven cooks in a fraction of the time at home or on the beach. And, it can be used for your traditional grilling foods as well. We love the cool green color.
