Elliptical Dome Shape

The ellipse is often considered one of the best shapes for a pizza oven dome due to its exceptional heat distribution properties and space efficiency. Unlike a simple hemisphere, which can result in localized hot spots, the elliptical shape allows for more even heat distribution throughout the oven’s interior. As the heat radiates from the central fire source, it naturally converges towards the focal point of the ellipse, ensuring that pizzas placed anywhere within the oven receive uniform cooking. This consistent heat distribution is crucial for achieving the perfect Neapolitan-style pizza with a well-baked, crispy crust and evenly cooked toppings, enhancing the overall quality of the pizza.
