The PizzaQue gives you the same results as a high-end wood-burning pizza oven, but without the size or cost.
Revolutionary new way to cook pizza
PizzaQue is designed to provide an authentic pizza experience that wasn’t possible before with a barbecue grill or kitchen oven.
How to use your PizzaQue
When firing your oven for the first time, it is advisable to run the burner on the 'High' setting for 20 minutes and then turn the oven off and let cool to room temperature. This tempers the oven and once cool is ready for use.
It is extremely important that your oven reach the ideal baking temperature before you begin using it. After lighting, run the oven on 'High' for 15 minutes, but no more than 20 minutes. This preheating will ensure that the internal oven and stone temperatures are hot enough for proper baking. The temperature gauge should read at least 700F (371 C) for 5 minutes before starting to cook.
Once the pizza is in the oven, the oven's heat quickly cooks the top of the pizza while the cordierite stone carefully crisps the crust. Toppings should cook at the same rate as the crust.
This balance can be greatly affected by the type of pizzas you are cooking (crust thickness, amount of topping) and the weather conditions (outside temperature and wind). Don’t worry if it takes a few pizzas to get your technique perfected. After all, Rome wasn’t built in a day.
What's in the box:
-- Portable pizza oven
-- Perfect pizza grilling stone
-- Gas hose and standard regulator
--If cooking a fresh pizza with raw pizza dough turn the control knob slightly between 'MED' and 'HIGH' depending on the weather. Using a peel, place the pizza in the center of the oven.
--Expect the pizza to cook in 6 minutes. The pizza should be turned 180 degrees halfway through for even cooking. Once cheese is melted and the outer crust and underside has browned, your pizza is done. The oven is ready for the next pizza.
--For frozen pizza or pizza purchased from a restaurant, set the control knob to the 'LOW' setting. Set the pizza in the center of the stone. A much lower heat is required to finish cooking this type of pizza.
Tips for avid pizzaque users:
--Dust the pizza peel with plenty of flour or corn meal to prevent sticking. Don’t let a fresh, uncooked pizza sit on the peel for longer than five minutes, as it will stick. If the pizza sticks on an aluminum peel, leave the peel and pizza in the oven for 1 minute to release the dough. Then pull out the peel.
--If the bottom of the pizza is cooking too fast, an aluminum peel can be used to slow it down by sliding it under the pizza during cooking.
--Check the underside of the pizza 2-3 minutes after it is in the oven to make sure the stone isn’t getting too hot. If so, turn the temperature down slightly.
--The thicker the crust, the lower you will want to set the oven temperature.
--When sliding in a raw pizza, aim for the center of the stone. It is possible to push to the pizza off the back of the stone – take care to center your pizza. If you need to move the pizza, wait approximately 30 seconds while the dough sets, then move the pizza to the center.
--Protect the oven from wind. Strong wind can cause the internal temperature to drop. The thermometer needs to stay at about 600F to make perfect pizzas.
--Once a pizza is finished cooking, the oven is immediately ready for another one. PizzaQue performs best when pizzas are cooked successively. Do not allow the oven to run empty longer than 15 minutes between pizzas as this can allow the stone to overheat.
--Oven temperature will vary with the outside temperature. The oven temperature may need to be hotter on a cold day or cooler on a hot day, as with any oven or grill.
--The PizzaQue can produce carbon monoxide which has no odor. NEVER use in an enclosed space, such as a camper, tent, car or home. Use outside and in well ventilated areas only.
--The PizzaQue may become very hot. The sides of this appliance, wind shields and lid may become hot while the appliance is in use. To prevent injury, do not touch those parts while the appliance is in use. Always wait for the appliance to cool to 115F (45C) or lower before moving or storing.
--Keep the fuel supply hose away from any heated surfaces. Hose should not be routed under the oven.

Comparison to Cuisinart Pizza Oven
The Pizzacraft has the Cuisinart beat hands down. We used the Cuisinart through a Minnesota Winter and when temps were around zero, it took 15 minutes or so to cook a pizza. Even in warmer weather, it never achieved the brick oven temps that this oven achieved easily at the drive in. We were popping out our pizza's in 5-6 minutes consistently and turning the dial down to keep it from 700-800 degrees. This might be because this oven uses a full propane tank while the Cuisinart uses the disposable containers. Also of note, it was completely cooled off by the time the movie was over so we could pack it back into the car.
The Cuisinart is the Cadillac of pizza ovens, it's stainless steel lines are beautiful while the pizza craft is more of a workhorse, function over form oven. This one looks fine, but it is definitely the ugly cousin with strong, hard working limbs.
EASE OF USE
This is another thing that the Pizzacraft excels in. The auto light capabilities makes this far easier to light, while the use of disposable tanks makes the Cuisinart easier to transport. However both make wonderful pizzas which is the end goal. Both are easy to get pizzas into and out of, and both make for a fun picnic.
The Cuisinart edges out the PizzaQue in ease of assembly, although both were fairly easy. It took about 20 minutes to unpack and assemble this oven, versus 10-15 for the Cuisinart. It is easy to attach the canisters to either.
This might be where the PizzaQue falls behind the Cuisinart the most. The Cuisinart came with several accessories, most importantly the pizza peel. That is the one absolutely necessary piece of equipment that you will have to have. Luckily we had an extra that is a little smaller than the one that came with the Cuisinart so we could put and pull pizza into this oven. That fact that it did not come with one is probably the biggest mark against this oven. Both come with the same basic additional accessories otherwise (i.e. stand, expanded utensil kits)
+ Maintains very hot, brick oven Temps
+ Allows you to make incredible pizzas
+ Auto light option is very nice
+ Seems Rugged.
+ Will take a standard grill propane tank
- Not quite as beautiful as the Cuisinart
- Does not come with a pizza peel
- Rattles a little in the car during transport
- A little bit of assembly before use
This is a workhorse oven that may not be as beautiful as the Cuisinart, but the addition of the built in igniter and the ability to maintain, higher pizza crushing temperatures make this as good or better when it comes to functionality. It is solid and easy to use. We loved our first one and loved hosting pizza events for kids and adults alike. It really does make an event in itself and I recommend one of these for anyone who enjoys outdoor dining. The fact that this is $80 cheaper than the Cuisinart is not meaningless. You get a little less in the looks department, but lose nothing (and actually gain a little) in functionality.
We'd also love to hear from you if you own a kettle grill and are interested in learning about a pizza kit which would help you make delicious pizza on your kettle grill.

It took only one trial run to get great results, but each time using it gets easier and the results better.
What works for us:
Let the PizzaQueue come up to temp. 10-15 minutes on high does it in our location. Then per instructions, turn the temp control down a bit.
Like another reviewer mentioned, use good quality ingredients.
Depending on the toppings, most of the pizzas we make are done in 4-6 minutes. I use tongs to rotate the pizza at the half way point so cooking is even.
For certain raw veggies that have high water content we will sometimes cook them down a bit or even fully carmelize things like peppers and onions (insanely great, by the way).
SInce we are pretty short on time most days, we hit up Trader Joe's for their premade dough. $1 a pop and will make 2 twelve inch rounds. Not bad. Just be sure to leave it out long enough to relax.
Anyway, back to the PizzaQueue....
We, and our neighbors, are totally loving this thing. Paying attention to the simple instructions and with very little practice, you'll be amazed at the results. My only problem, and this is not PizzaQueue's fault, is that I don't have the counterspace to repare more than 4 rounds. May try par baking them ahead of time so we can slam out in short order.
In short, this is a GREAT product that does what it says it will do and is backed by a great company. We love it.
