Rustic Pizzas with Uuni

Rustic Pizzas with Uuni

The inventor of Uuni, Kristian Tapaninaho, was born in Finland and loved baking at his mother’s bakery, which is where he honed his pizza craft. Now living in Edinburgh, Kristian and Darina’s family love making fresh and tasty food in a rustic style.

Uuni 3 Lifestyle

Kristian loved making pizzas, but couldn’t get the traditional wood-fired taste with normal ovens, and couldn’t find an inexpensive or portable pizza oven. As a response, Kristian designed his own cost-effective yet small oven. The Uuni (Finnish for oven) was designed and pitched on Kickstarter in 2012. To our delight, the campaign achieved more than 220% of its funding goal in just two weeks. Now, for every 10kg of wood pallets Uuni sell, a new tree will be planted.


The pizza ovens are created from a sleek stainless steel in a portable design- creating the inexpensive and moveable oven Kristian dreamed of. The wood pellets heat the oven up in 10 minutes, allowing you to cook artisan pizzas in just a minute. Uuni have created a video to show how easy it is to put your Uuni oven together to start making rustic pizzas.
