For a fast pizza cook the stone will need to be hot but not too hot!

The Ooni Koda 12 is a very light and portable pizza oven.  Easy and quick to set up for a pizza cook.

The Ooni Koda 12 is a great-sized pizza oven for making about 10” pizza.  Not only that, it is so easy to carry and set up. 

The Koda 12 is very light and so when you fancy a fast setup and a quick cook it’s very easy to do. 

For this pizza I used salami with fennel and it tasted really great on the pizza, although it did reduce to half its size after the cook!

For most of the time in this oven I cook with the dial at 3/4 to full flame.  It depends on the size of the pizza.

The bigger the pizza, the lower I place the flame at the back.

This is because the pizza can get too close to the flame at the back and before you know it, before the first turn, it’s got your crust!

You will need to ensure your pizza stone is hot enough for a fast cook.  To do this I heat it up – keep the gas on full until it reaches at least 470c in the centre of the stone.  When that is reached I turn the oven off or to a low flame for a few minutes.

The surface temperature of the stone will lower but the heat inside will cook your pizza without burning it.


Get your stone very very hot so that the heat penetrates into it. This will ensure your base cooks in time.

And for a smaller pizza I turn the dial to nearly full or full flame as I have a lot more room to manouvre the crust quickly away from the flame at the back and I can also place the pizza closer to the front.
