Naples Igloo Enclosure

The Naples Igloo enclosure design is characterized by its elliptical dome top, set on basically vertical side walls. The oven’s chimney is set in the top center of the dome. A Naples enclosure is typically finished with small format tiles.

There was a time when you only found this style enclosure in Naples restaurant pizzerias, and Pizza Napoletana restaurants in large cities around the world, but today the Naples enclosure has become increasing popular in all types of restaurant, and even in backyards. Precast oven kit producers, such as Forno Bravo, make assembled ovens in a range of sizes with custom tile work, designed specifically for residential customers. In the UK, Gozney has a complete oven kit that has pre-manufactured exterior panels that snap together to create the Naples exterior dome shape, and are ready to be covered with stucco.
