The Best Pizza Makers in Australia
1. MasterPro Electric Pizza Maker
Like your pizza crispy on the base with soft moist and gooey toppings? Well, the MasterPro electric pizza maker and oven can achieve a perfect pizza every time with its fixed ceramic baking stone and top heating element.
The oven is multifunctional and can be used for cooking and reheating fresh and frozen pizza, toasted sandwiches, to crisp up pastry on party pies and pasties, heating up bread or focaccia, and much more.
And it’s very easy to use: just preheat the baking stone for 10 minutes, place the rolled out pizza base on the stone, build your choice of classic or gourmet toppings, close the lid and check after 3 minutes. Cook to your desired level.
The oven comes with two wide stainless-steel paddles to easily lift the pizza off the baking stone and transfer on to your serving plate.
The oven has a temperature dial for easy control of the heating as well as a timer to make sure the food doesn’t overcook. The preheating process is helped by a green ‘ready’ light when the oven has reached the correct temperature for use.
The unit is made from quality food-safe stainless steel with a sleek black finish. It’s durable, sturdy, stylish and easy to clean.
To clean the appliance simply scrape the cooking surface with the paddles if needed and then wipe it clean with a paper towel or cloth.
With the MasterPro pizza oven you know that every pizza you eat will be quick and will be perfect, and you’ll save money as well.
2. EuroGrille Pizza Oven BBQ
Have you always wanted a pizza oven but not really up for the hassle of building the wood or charcoal fore and waiting for the heat to build before you can even think about starting to make the pizza?
EuroGrille’s LPG plug and go pizza oven/barbeque has solved that problem. All you have to do is connect the LPG tank (not supplied), turn the electric ignition switch and the oven is on and heating up immediately and quickly. The preheating time with this pizza oven is only 10 minutes, and there’s no mess to clean up afterwards.
With a rack included to sit above the bottom cooking stone ( a 12” cordlerite ceramic stone is included), the oven is designed to be able to cook two large (12”) pizzas in under 10 minutes.
Or you can use the rack to cook a different dish while the pizza is cooking on the bottom. Alternatively, the oven can be used as an enclosed barbeque, ideal for roasting or cooking flavourful fish in foil.
The oven has an inbuilt thermometer and temperature controller to make sure you know what’s going on inside.
Finished in brushed stainless steel, the pizza oven/barbeque is an impressive looking appliance. Weighing only 13kg (excluding the LPG tank) it is very portable so you can take it with you when you go camping. It’s also great for entertaining.
3. MasterPro Ultimate Pizza Maker
Tired of waiting forever for the delivery boy only to yet again end up with a cold soggy pizza? The answer may lie in a little DIY: making your own. You could save quite a bit of money as well!
There are some pretty neat appliance options out there these days for making pizzas at home and the MasterPro Ultimate Pizza maker is one of them.
This is an electric pizza oven for the kitchen. It’s designed to make a large 12” pizza in just 3-5 minutes (plus a preheating time of 10 minutes).
The bottom element is a ceramic baking stone to create an authentic crispy pizza base. Simply lay the prepared pizza pastry base (or frozen pizza) on the stone and add your choice of toppings then close the lid to cook. Set the timer for 3 minutes and check. Cook to your desired level of doneness. The stone can be removed for cleaning later.
The top element cooks your toppings to perfection and has a window through which you can monitor the cooking progress of your homemade gourmet pizza. There is a timer you can set to make sure that you don’t accidentally overcook your food.
The pizza oven comes with two wide stainless-steel paddles for sliding the cooked pizza from the hot stone to the serving plate.
You can also use the pizza maker to reheat and crisp up pastry like pies, sausage rolls, etc and to make toasted sandwiches. Use a bit of imagination and you may find other uses for this versatile appliance.
4. Betty Crocker Pizza Maker
Although this kitchen appliance is called a pizza maker it is in fact far more versatile than that and can be used to make a variety of other delicious foods like quesadillas, frittatas, nachos, croissants, quiche and more.
The beauty of an electric pizza maker is that it’s so quick and easy. No more checking the oven constantly to see whether the food is done. And you get the crisp base you want every time!
After preheating, the non-stick bottom baking plate cooks the base of the pizza and other foods perfectly with the crispness it should have.
The top element cooks the topping through so it’s nice and hot and gooey to eat. Clean up is a breeze because the pizza base just doesn’t stick to the plate.
The bottom plate measures 12” diameter, ideal for a standard large pizza. It will also heat a frozen pizza beautifully.
There is a red ‘on’ light when the unit is plugged in at the power outlet, and a green ‘ready’ light when the preheat temperature has been reached and the unit is ready for the pizza.
The timer needs to be set (3-5 minutes is recommended for a freshly made pizza, 10-15 minutes for a frozen pizza) and the green light will again turn on when the time has elapsed.
All in all, this pizza maker is very easy to use and sells for a very reasonable price.
5. Firebox FB12 BBQ Pizza Oven
Like the idea of adding pizza to your barbeque repertoire without adding anything too crazy price or size wise?
The BBQ Pizza Oven from Firebox is a great idea – it’s a pre-assembled lightweight stainless-steel unit with handles which simply sits on top of your gas or charcoal barbeque for cooking classic or gourmet pizza really quickly and so easily.
It comes with a separate stone base for cooking a beautifully crisp base. The oven has a temperature guage and temperature control is via the barbeque underneath.
The Firebox heats up in only 10 minutes on top of an already hot barbeque and it then cooks a prepared pizza in just a few minutes. The unit is double insulated to ensure optimum heat retention and easy cleaning.
It’s so light and portable that you can easily take it camping or to a picnic in a park which has barbeques. It’s also ideal for other cooking like roasts, bread, pastries etc. And it adds an edge to your entertaining, or to kids’ parties.
You do need to be aware that this is a barbeque add-on and not a cooking appliance on its own. Control over the temperature and timing of the cooking is very dependent on the barbeque being used underneath.
It will take a little time to get used to the combination of the two but once you have done that the oven is a great accessory to outdoor life!
It can be difficult to choose the best pizza maker but hopefully we've given you some insights into the best available in Australia. If you're looking for affordability and feature rich then you can't go wrong with the MasterPro electric maker.
For something a little different, or cooking outdoors then why not try the Firebox pizza oven and get the real thing on your own terms.
