There are numerous things to think about before you can commence work, however, one of which is the cost to build a pizza oven. This will be dictated by a variety of factors, including the type of oven, materials used, optional extras, and installation method, which we will discuss in more detail in this article.

How Much Does It Cost To Build A Pizza Oven?

In truth, there is no single answer to this question. So, what factors will affect the price?

Type Of Pizza Oven

Pizza ovens are available in a variety of types and styles, from authentic brick-built ovens to modern, ergonomic stainless-steel designs. Each type of oven has its costs and advantages, so it’s important that you investigate the benefits of each type to ensure that you’re investing wisely. For example, a stainless-steel oven may be a more modern option but will not retain heat as effectively as a brick oven, so running costs are likely to be higher.


Building a pizza oven requires the use of a variety of materials which must be sourced from a reputable supplier to ensure the oven is properly insulated and weather resistant. Using inappropriate materials could result in the oven underperforming or deteriorating in wet or cold weather. Our pizza oven kits are the ideal solution and can help avoid some of the most common problems people experience, as they contain everything you need for a professional and durable installation.

Build And Installation

The cost of your garden pizza oven will be higher if you need the expertise of a builder to construct it. While self-build will always be cheaper than hiring a professional, you should only undertake the project if you have the knowledge and skills to complete it to the required standard – otherwise, the pizza oven may not perform correctly, and you could land yourself with expensive repair bills. A pizza oven kit is ideal if you can assemble it yourself as it contains everything you need for a professional installation.

Weighing Up Your Options

When choosing a pizza oven for the garden, carefully consider what you would like to achieve from the project and remember that lower costs may mean fewer options. Above all, make sure you obtain your pizza oven from a reputable supplier who has positive customer reviews to avoid investing in a low-quality product.
