With our great love for pizzas and everything about them, we’ve decided to try out different products and steer you in the right direction when buying. This time, we’ve decided to test some ovens that could make the pizza baking process easier.
Here are our top three picks for the best air fryer pizza oven on the market:
- Breville BOV900BSS the Smart Oven Air Fryer Pro,
- Ninja DT251 Foodi 10-in-1 Smart XL Air Fry Oven,
- Cosori Air Fryer Toaster Oven.
So, let’s take a look at each of these ovens, break all the information down, and help you choose the best product for you.
1.) Breville Smart Oven Air Fryer Pro – Our Top Choice
Perhaps you’re one of those people who love eating out, and you think that Pizza Hut is the best or you love Papa John’s taco pizza as your guilty pleasure. Whatever the case is, nothing compares to a homemade pizza made with quality ingredients, patience, and love.
However, it’s easy to hand pick the best possible ingredients like the Caputo 00 flour and add your favorite toppings. However, finding the best tools for the job is a bit more complex. Having the best countertop pizza oven and an air frying one will make all the difference. For us, the best pick on Amazon was the Breville BOV900BSS Smart Oven Air Fryer Pro.
While all air fryers will dehydrate the food and fry it using hot air, the best thing about this oven is that it can do so on four different racks at once. You can use it for roasting and, most importantly – for baking the perfect pizzas. The super convection option will reduce your cooking time by 30%. There are 13 different cooking functions available.
This is what you get in your box with the oven when it arrives:
- There are two added oven racks inside.
- All pizza lovers will be delighted to see that there’s a 13″ pizza pan with the oven.
- There’s a 9″x13″ broil rack and an enamel roasting pan.
- An oven light is included, so you can check whether your mozzarella cheese is nicely melted and bubbly.
- The capacity is extra large.
- The power is 1,800 Watts, and it has a 2-year warranty.
This is an excellent pizza oven in every way, and the best thing about it is that you can bake several pizzas at the same time. It’s an overall very versatile countertop oven with a super convection system that makes baking a breeze. The convection fan has two speeds that allow you better control over your meal.
This is an awesome addition to your kitchen, especially if you are an avid pizza lover. However, if you intend to roast some wings or other meat in this oven, they won’t turn out to be as crispy as expected.

2.) The Runner Up – Ninja Foodi 10-In-1 Smart Xl Air Fry Oven
This multi-level oven gives way faster results with any type of food, while it bakes a crispy crust on your pizza. You can use it to fry, bake, or dehydrate the whole roast. Although this is a countertop oven, its inside is large enough to prepare a whole-sized family meal. Since it is a multi-level system, you can prepare several trays at once.
This oven comes with five additional accessories that make your baking and roasting a breeze. There’s a pan with a broiling accessory that can be used as the second frying rack. The built-in temperature probe is a nice feature for getting that crispy yet soft meal perfectly done.
With your oven, you will receive the following:
- Two sheet pans are included.
- You will also receive two wire racks.
- There is an air fryer basket (perfect for french fries).
- Foodi smart thermometer for checking your meat.
- Roast tray and a crumb tray.
- A recipe guide with 15 different recipes.
The best thing about the Ninja Foodi 10-in-1 Smart XL Air Fry Oven is that it is versatile. You can roast, bake and make the perfect pizzas in it. Also, you can make multiple pizzas at once. Its capacity allows you to cook several meals at once or prepare one family-sized meal. Added accessories are a great bonus, too.
While this oven is very similar to our top choice, it is large and loud, and may not fit your kitchen, if you have little space available.
|This oven also allows cooking on multiple levels at the same time
|Compared to some other ovens, it is quite loud when it operates
|It has various cooking settings
|It may prove to be a bit bulky, which is inconvenient for smaller kitchens
|The XL oven is perfect for preparing large meals
While this oven is an excellent choice, the fact that it is not a multi-level one has placed it on the third place on our list. However, it gives plenty of cooking options, so if you’re looking for an oven that can prepare various types of meals besides pizza, this might be your best bet.
A great air fry oven that can roast and bake with additional functions is a great choice because it comes with presets. It’s a nice solution for those that aren’t sure which temperature to set for different types of meals. It has a large capacity, a convection system, and comes with many handy accessories and a recipe book.
There are several different accessories that come with this oven:
- One air fry basket, a perfect fit for the french fries.
- One crumb tray.
- One food tray.
- One wire rack.
- A rotisserie fork set and a rotisserie handle.
- A book full of Cosori pro chefs’ recipes.
This is a multisystem oven where you can prepare food differently. You can roast, bake, and air fry, and it also has pizza and bagel options. You can also dehydrate, ferment, keep warm and toast your meals. The oven has a large capacity for family-sized meals and a convection function to make meal preparation a breeze.
The display is a bit more complicated to use and program, and the oven can’t stay on for more than two hours (if you intend to cook something slowly). The other issue is that the drip pan can not be taken out with the basket at the same time, so the grease can freely drip onto the door.
|It’s pretty easy to clean
|If you’re cooking anything with more grease, it can splatter and slide down the door
|The recipe book written by the Cosori pro chefs is a great addition
|The crumb tray proves not to be a good option for keeping the grease
|The accessories that come with it are really useful
What to Look for When Buying an Air Fryer Pizza Oven?
Avid pizza lovers need the right set of tools to prepare a perfect slice. Since ovens are a must-have for baking (but also for roasting and other things,) it’s essential to be careful when you pick your oven.
How easy is it to program and use the oven? This is one of the most important things to look for, especially if you haven’t used this type of oven before. After all, the easier it is to use, the better because it will probably be in use daily.
The best thing about the countertop ovens is that they are small and portable compared to a conventional oven. However, if you have a tiny space in your kitchen, always check the dimensions before buying this cooking appliance.
This isn’t a must, but having a multi-level oven can make your life much easier, especially if you have a family. A bigger oven that can bake or roast several trays at the same time can be a life savior.
While these three ovens all have their own set of advantages, with only a few disadvantages, our top choice remains to be the Breville Smart Oven Air Fryer Pro.
We consider the Breville Smart Oven Air Fryer Pro to be the best choice because it has all a pizza lover needs – it’s easy to operate, has a multi-level system, and it fits on your counter. But with the available 13 functions, you won’t stop at just baking pizzas. You can roast, toast and dehydrate, and make tasty meals on a daily basis.
Yes, the top of the countertop ovens usually gets really hot while in use. It’s best not to mount any cabinets on top of it, while you can get a cutting board with insulation and place it there.
If your oven is a multi-level one, you can freely dehydrate multiple meals at once. You can usually fit up to four baskets at once, just keep in mind that you will probably purchase them separately.
