My sister Jill bought a Uuni wood-fire pizza oven. I am pretty sure it was one of those impulsive online purchases but, after Saturday night, I am sure glad she did.
This thing can cook pizza!
Here are the specs from the website – Note: Jill has the first generation Uuni but below is for the Uuni 2S… similar but with a few upgrades including a stone base. Also, Jill ordered her’s from the States and our other sister sherpa’d it across the border:
Extreme 900°F heat
Uuni 2S gets up to 900°F which enables you to cook things really fast. You can make a stone-baked, wood-fired pizza in just 90 seconds! It’s also not just for pizza; you can cook flatbreads, fish, vegetables, steaks or really anything that enjoys short cooking times.
Uuni is powered by wood pellets which are very energy-dense and inexpensive; they’re like regular wood except compressed. No additives, no hidden extras, just wood. The pellets ignite easily & Uuni 2S takes just 10 minutes to heat up, from cold up to 900°F.
Lasts a lifetime
Uuni 2S is made of beautiful brushed stainless steel. It weathers and ages as you use it, but it doesn’t rust and it just keeps on performing. It’ll make for a key feature in your outdoor kitchen or barbecue area.
Because of the ease and speed of use, Uuni 2S is fantastic for entertaining friends or family. Get the gang together to make their own pizzas and then wood-fire them to perfection in front of their eyes.
We spent the weekend in Pugwash – perfect spring weather and a great opportunity to finally test the Uuni out. It’s easy, fast, portable and fun. The pizzas are amazing – especially the crust.
Here are some pics. It made me want one. How about you? Above: Prepping caramelized onions and roasted medallion cut potatoes Above: The Uuni is table-top friendly Above: Pierogi Pizza! Sour cream base, thinly sliced roasted potatoes, cheese, chives and a dollop more sour cream on top.

Above: Simply slide in, close the door, count to 30, open and rotate, count to 30, open and rotate, count to 30 and remove!
Feedback from the toughest critic, 7-year-old David, who has a very specific pizza palate: “This is better than Salvatores… Next time I want pizza, I am ordering from Jill!”
Oh, and I this is not a sponsor post. I don’t even own a Uuni but it sure is on my wish list! #fangirl
