5 Backyard Pizza Ovens Making Us Super Jealous Right Now

If I were to design my dream backyard right now, a pizza oven would be first on the list. I mean, seriously — how amazing would that be?

We know that turning the heat up (way up!) is the secret to great pizza, but topping out your home oven at 550 degrees Fahrenheit doesn't even come close to the blistering 900 degree heat of a wood-fired pizza oven. You can build your own, although we've heard it's not for the faint-hearted. If you've tried it, tell us about it!

And while clay and brick are perfectly acceptable exterior looks, let's not forget about this amazing version. Put that in your backyard and, yes, you are now the coolest friend ever.

Do you have a pizza oven in your backyard?
