The Ooni Fyra 12 is an affordable and practical wood pellet-fired pizza oven.

The Ooni Fyra 12 is only fuelled by wood-pellets.

Chimney Attachment – This is very easy to attach and detach.  You insert into the chimney hole and lock by twisting the chimney into the lock position.

Portable and Lightweight – This is a super oven to take camping as it’s lightweight and compact enough to store.

Wood Pellets  – This oven can only be fuelled with wood pellets.  You don’t need to use Ooni pellets.  I tried out a number of value pellet brands before settling on the brand that I use.  However, the Ooni pellets are great quality and provide a good strong flame.

The Door – This oven is best used with the door on whilst cooking the pizza.  This is because the flame very often pulls backwards once the door is opened.  I don’t use the small hole in the door.  It’s not big enough to see the pizza but it does give you a glimpse of the flames at the back.

Stone Heat Management – The wood pellet flames can heat the stone super hot in a very short time.  I use a cast-iron pan to reduce the stone temperature by a 100 degree celsius in 60 seconds.

Second Pizza Cook Temperature – It takes about 5 minutes with a full flame in the grate to re-heat the stone back up to the 430c middle stone cooking temperature.


Use a cast-iron pan to quickly reduce the temperature of your pizza stone.

No Gas Lighting Hole! – If my pellets go out I use a gas butane torch to re-light the pellets through the grate at the back.  The Ooni 3 has a small hole on the side which was perfect for this task!

Pizza Crust Cook – The wood pellet flames give the pizza a perfect top and crust cook.  The flames reach every area of the crust and provide a great all-round cook.
