I rated Oprah's Favorite Things Solo Stove Pi Pizza oven highly – its Black Friday price is low

I reviewed it, it's on our list of top pizza ovens to buy and if Ms Winfrey recommends it too. It's a done deal

Searching for a Black Friday pizza oven deal? I might just have found the very best. Recommended by Oprah Winfrey on her Favorite Things list for 2022, and grabbing a spot in our list of the best pizza ovens, Solo Stove's Pi Pizza Oven is on sale on the manufacturer's site for $399.99 (opens in new tab)

Admittedly, it's not still not cheap cheap, but it is, I think you'll agree, a thing of beauty. When I tested it, I really liked it, and we've rated it our top compact pizza oven buy. Plus there's a lot more to love, more of which, below.

The Solo Stove Pi makes wood-fired pizzas, or you can use it like one of the best gas grills (opens in new tab) and bake with propane by adding on the gas burner.

My sum up when I tested this pizza oven back in the summer was that it's a straightforward oven that makes a mean pizza. You can read my full Solo Stove Pi Pizza oven review for full details, but let me give you some more basics here: it heats up and cooks really fast (to around 650 degrees in 15 minutes), it's super compact and easy to store when not in use, and (for me this is best of all), it can be used for wood-fired pizza and gas-fired.

At 20in in diameter, it makes 12in pizzas in just two to four minutes (depending on how crispy you like them. And, if you're a beginner to making your own, you'll be happy to know that using the Solo Stove Pi was easier than many of the other ovens I've tested.

Note, the pizza peel and the pizza turner are part of the add-on Pi bundle, which is also on sale on Solo Stove (opens in new tab) now; they're not included if you buy the stove-only, but they are extremely useful. 

The litmus test? The pizzas were DELICIOUS, and the biggest downside was that I couldn't cook them as quickly as my family could consume them, which is saying something because I had that production line down to a fine art after a few pizzas.

Months on, you'll be happy to know that we still love the Solo Stove, and it has easily withstood a summer of busy pizza-making.
