I like Italian pizza so much I’m willing to try anything to bring Italy home for the taste of an authentic pie. So when I saw a post on the internet describing a portable pizza maker with the look of a rustic stone dome and the promise of an Italian style pizza my inner pizzaiolo got very excited. Never mind that its heat source is an electric heating coil and the pizzas are the size of a saucer. The gadget got good reviews with comments about family gatherings and great couples entertaining similar to a Swiss Raclette .
The natural clay “terra-cotta” dome, the glow of the electric coils and clicking your heels three times will not transport you back to Italy and neither will the Made in China manufacturing label. As to whether the clever design of this easy bake oven brings true Italian brick oven taste to your tabletop remains unknown to me as the product is currently listed as unavailable.
