G3 Ferrari pizza oven (from Amazon Italy) - stonebaked pizza in 7 minutes! £60 Price is approximate.

Found 2nd Aug 2015
28/10/2015 Amazon.it have dropped the price down to just under 73 Euros, so with delivery it's about £60 at the moment. If you were thinking of treating yourself (or someone else) for Christmas, now looks like the time to buy.

07/10/2015 I've updated the price to £71, reflecting current euro price in Italy and exchange rate of approximately 1.35 to the pound. It's still miles cheaper than the lowest price Amazon UK seller, and a family of four should easily recoup the outlay after a few skipped Dominos take-outs.

19/08/2015 Amazon Italy have dropped the price down to EUR78.99 recently, so with delivery it's now about £63.

This is a deal for the true pizza lovers out there who have been struggling to perfect their home baked pizzas from scratch. I've been making pizzas at home for several years and have always suspected that my oven simply doesn't get hot enough to do a proper job, even after pre-heating with pizza stones in the oven for a good hour.

I've been aware of the G3 Ferrari Delizia Pizza Express for a couple of years, but it's always been around £90-100 from Amazon UK, or more from other UK suppliers. Given that it's just a two element grill with a stone on the bottom, I could never bring myself to pay that much for it, even though the reviews are overwhelmingly good. Well, I've had it for a week now, and I can promise you that it is the real deal. Crispy on the bottom with a puffed-up light and airy crust and juicy melted toppings, grilled to perfection.

I make my dough in the morning with cold water and leave it in the fridge all day, taking it out to split into 220g balls at room temperature about an hour before stretching into shape. I use the Lehmann pizza dough calculator for my ratios here pizzamaking.com/dou…tml. I also bought two large £8 wooden peels from Amazon UK, one for making and sliding on, with another for taking off. This way you can produce continuously, one after the other. There is a knack to using the G3 whereby you need to make sure the stone is not too hot and the top grill is red hot throughout cooking. There's plenty of discussion on this in the Amazon reviews. I use an infrared thermometer the check the stone is not hotter than 250c to prevent burning.

Now that the exchange rate between the pound and the Euro is in our favour for imports again, this Italian manufactured appliance has dropped in price to the extent that it cost me only £67 to buy it from Amazon.fr including shipping. Pay in Euros and let your bank do the conversion instead of Amazon's rip-off rate. It doesn't matter if you order from France, Spain, or Italy. it'll be sent from Italy anyway. Just go for the cheapest 'sold and dispatched by Amazon' price.

If you're serious about making pizza, buy this thing now - you won't regret it.

UPDATE
Loads of HUKDers have bought these now and had them delivered. Check through the thread to see the kind of results they've been getting - real Neapolitan style pizzas at home!

Fitting a UK plug with the earth cable connected seems to 'upset' some people's contact breakers, so best to use a converter for visitors to the UK - available at Poundland, or don't connect the earth if you feel safe doing it.

The dough is even better if you make it well in advance. Prove it in the fridge for 24hrs and take it out to let it warm up for a couple of hours before stretching.

The top grill element needs to be glowing red hot all the way through cooking, if you don't like the crust too dark, whip some aluminium foil underneath part way through so the top can catch up without burning the bottom.

26/08/2015 UPDATE on using CAPUTO '00' FLOUR
Quite a few HUKDers have been getting hold of Caputo 00 flour, the genuine pizza flour from Naples. This flour appears to be considerably less absorbent than very strong bread flour, so you need less water in the mix. If using the pizza dough calculator, start off with a 55% hydration rate and adjust up/down to get the dough rolling around the mixer nicely and coming away from the sides.


Best Authentic pizza flour called Caputo 00 tipo & San Marzano d.o.p Tomatoes can be bought from Ebay seller called
England-2013
item number 262448035899

many of us have been using them for awhile now and there great on these g3 ferrari Plus they offer the flour in smaller quantities

Okay, with two large pizzas at most take away outlets being £20, this pays for itself after eight pizzas. The pizzas I can turn out with this are miles better than Dominos, Pizza Hut, etc. and you know exactly what is on them.

That's before eating all those pizzas! You should see me now

Amazon Italy looks cheapest at €84.99 (£61) I presume it comes with the wrong plug though?

Yes, it has the wrong plug, but I already have a converter. A competent person could just wire on a UK 3 pin plug in a few minutes. There were also two flimsy boards for putting the pizza on the stone but I don't use them. Also, there is no gap around the stone for crud to fall down, it's sealed in to the base. The whole thing isn't as big as I was expecting either.

No Pizza originated from Italy, but is available and enjoyed throughout many parts of the world. Dude is an americanised word and can stay there.

When I checkout it changes to £84.
Any idea what I am doing wrong?

it's well worth if you are a true pizza lover but personally I love sitting next to the door for 40 minutes waiting for a guy to pull up in his Nissan micra and deliver me the wrong pizza

Without knowing the number of family members, both quantities are a bit meaningless.

Plus no point comparing shop purchased or frozen pizza to home made pizza. At least with something like this you can control the ingredients that go into it. Plus if you know what your doing, it generally tastes much nicer and will be healthier (or less unhealthy if you like).

With most foods, it's the processed ingredients that are unhealthy. Cut them out or at least swap them for something less processed and eat in moderation.

Do you reckon the OP takes this pizza malarkey seriously then...?


He does. But not as seriously as I should. The real purists are using sourdough for the base, which takes weeks of preparation to produce. That pizzamaking.com website is full of 'enthusiasts' taking a simple recipe far too seriously. This gadget would benefit from individual thermostats on the top and bottom. Some people have modded them, including a double element fitted to the top and an external controller for temperature. I think I'll leave mine as it is for now, but getting a sourdough starter going...

A home made pizza with real mozzarella and some form of meat is less than £2 in ingredients.

What next a Renault Croissant Maker? Ferrari have no business making pizzas, apart from being Italian.

Do you not have an oven? A pizza tin?? Gas/electricity??

"Grazie. Il tuo ordine con 1-Click è stato completato. "

- I'm going to have to remove HUKD from my bookmarks. Ten minutes ago I was content in my world with no need whatsoever for a pizza cooker. I didn't even know they existed TBH, and now I've got one on its way from Genoa, or somewhere.

Er, thanks OP.

I make pizza every week and am currently using a pizza stone in a fan oven. While its good, its not quite like you would get in a restaurant. Without being able to get a pizza oven in the garden this could be an alternative. I wonder how it compares to this pizza oven which has very good reviews and is under £55 >>> from Amazon UK amazon.co.uk/Ita…0B2
