Go all-out Stars and Stripes with a Valoriani UK pizza oven

Americans around the globe are gearing up to celebrate their Independence Day on July 4, which has been a national paid holiday since 1938 – and what better way to celebrate than with an all-American BBQ.

But, here at Valoriani, we think you should have a BBQ with a difference. Did you know that our pizza ovens can be used as a grill too, via our optional Tuscan grill? With this versatility, there’s no need to dig out the BBQ from the back of the garage.

You can cook an entire feast in one place – a Valoriani UK wood-fired pizza oven. If you already have one of our wood or gas-fired pizza ovens, then click here to purchase the grill so you can get cooking much more than what we bet is beautiful tasting pizza.

If you want to get in on the wood fired pizza action, then we recommend The Valoriani Fornino al Fresco UK 60 – the first ‘ready to go’ Valoriani oven. It’s supplied with a self-assembly metal stand with a ready-to-use oven. It really is the perfect garden accessory for outside entertaining.

It’s mobile, weatherproof and ready for the Independence Day menu you’re planning. It cooks food with a real flame, channelling those Mediterranean flavours we miss when we’re not on holiday.

If you buy the Tuscan grill when you buy your wood-fired oven, you’re ready to go and ready to join in on the fun. For the last decade, sales of our pizza ovens have been on the increase and there’s good reason for that. Creating an outdoor kitchen transforms a home and makes outdoor living and entertaining much easier.

The pizza oven is becoming the ultimate garden accessory and according to The Daily Mail, Guy Ritchie and Madonna even fought over theirs (a Valoriani, by the way) when they split. Gwyneth Paltrow raves about her Valoriani and we know Jamie Oliver has lots of American inspired recipes that can be cooked in his.

When talking to The Daily Mail Jamie said of his Valoriani oven: “I love cooking in it. It’s outside, it’s sociable and food tastes better in it. If you can get the hang of cooking in one of these, you feel more connected with it – there’s something medieval about it.”

Valoriani’s Fornino al Fresco is a fabulous starter oven. It has a 3cm-deep Valoriani cooking floor and a 3cm-thick handmade Cotto clay dome. There’s so much you can cook on it to enjoy the best Independence Day BBQ.
