I’ve not actually used a Roccbox but I did a bit of research and decided the Ooni looked better for decent, consistent results (especially the Koda as gas is incredibly consistent) - turn it on, leave it for 15 minutes and its perfect.

Re: Dough - I don’t know if you can get in the UK, but a few places here do it. If you are looking to make Neapolitan style pizza, I would make your own dough. The stuff I have bought previously from stores here to use in my regular kitchen oven is made with regular flour as opposed to ‘00’. Regular flour doesn’t do well for a very hot, quick cook (60-90 secs in Ooni) so I would recommend you make your own dough with 00. It’s a piece of piss and you basically do it 24 hours ahead, or failing that the night before/morning of the day you want to have it and leave it out to prove. If you are going to the trouble of buying a pizza oven it’s worth making the dough, using San Marzano tomatoes etc - really makes a difference.

Just to echo what Birdman said, I have the gas powered Koda and have tried normal & 00 flour and the 00 gave much better results.

I ordered various 1kg bags of 00 flour, a couple of different types of mozzarella to try, pepperoni, wild boar Salami and a few other treats from the below website and was really impressed with the superior quality over supermarked bought produce.

Yeh always use 00 flour. Got stuck in to the pizza making during myself during lock down. Really helpful to use a pizza dough calculator like the below to get all the ratios right.

Couple of good videos here too.

For dough, use a breadmaker if you've got one - whack all the ingredients in, turn on dough mode, 60 mins later perfect dough. We buy 00 flour from a local pizza maker, way better than stuff we've bought in shops, and use a bit semolina flour on the peels. +1 on making fresh sauce, only takes 10-15 mins.

Have used our Ooni 2 loads through the summer but moving it on soon to get a Karu, we've got an open fire so have shitloads of logs we can use rather than pellets.

A set of these. Not my first choice dining chair but a compromise with the wife.

I like these but realistically they’re twice the price and they can wait until I have kids who are past the age of drawing on furniture.

Reckon a couple of those would of looked nice at the heads of the table and had the rest as the ‘compromise’ chairs.

Both look decent though.

twice the price for only one extra leg, not worth it
