Stefano Ferrara ForniEstablished 2001
Founded in 2001 by Stefano Ferrara, a third generation oven-maker, Stefano Ferrara Forni is the manufacturer of the most iconic professional pizza oven. Each stove is hand-built on-site. A Ferrara oven takes a week to build and an additional 10 days of constant careful heating to begin the drying process. The full process takes a month. To top it all off, the restaurant’s name is set in mosaic tiles into the oven’s dome.
Notable pizzerias such as Una Pizza Napoletana in San Francisco, Paulie Gee’s in Brooklyn, Cane Rosso in Dallas, and Motorino in Brooklyn and Hong Kong own ovens bearing the Ferrara name.
