The Bertello’s Story
What we do
Bertello is the pioneering force behind the revolution of outdoor pizza oven craftsmanship. We pride ourselves on constructing the paramount wood and gas fired outdoor pizza ovens that not only offer convenience but also deliver an unparalleled culinary experience right in your backyard. What truly sets Bertello apart in the competitive market is our patented technology, granting us the distinctive capability to simultaneously cook with both gas and wood. With this innovation, users can seamlessly heat their ovens using propane gas to soaring temperatures of over 900 degrees, and subsequently infuse their pizzas with the authentic, smoky essence that only wood can impart. By bridging convenience with gourmet flair, Bertello transforms any backyard into a hub for restaurant-quality pizza indulgence.
Why We Do It
At Bertello, our dedication to crafting outdoor pizza ovens stems from a deeply-rooted passion for pizza shared by my brother and me. Our journey with pizza isn't just a fleeting fascination; it's a pivotal part of our personal history. Both of us spent our high school and college years working in pizza shops, immersing ourselves in the art of pizza-making. Those formative years were instrumental in shaping our understanding and appreciation of what goes into crafting the perfect pie. With Bertello, we aim to encapsulate our experiences, expertise, and enthusiasm into each oven we produce, ensuring that others can revel in the authentic and joyous experience of crafting pizzas outdoors, just as we have cherished it for years.
How It All Happened
Bertello was born from the innovative minds of brothers Eric and Andy Bert, a dynamic duo hailing from Woodbury, Minnesota, with backgrounds in engineering and finance respectively. Their shared love for authentic Neapolitan style pizza and a flair for invention led to the creation of a groundbreaking product: a portable outdoor pizza oven that heats up to over 900 degrees Fahrenheit, can use gas and wood simultaneously, and lets pizza aficionados craft their favorite delicacy right in their backyards. The journey of Bertello kicked off in 2017 with a successful Kickstarter campaign, but it was our momentous appearance on the TV show 'Shark Tank' in 2020 that truly catapulted us to the forefront of the culinary world. With the strategic partnership of Kevin O'Leary, famously known as "Mr. Wonderful", Bertello transformed from a dream into a household name, bringing the authentic taste of Neapolitan pizza to homes across the nation.

This is the best pizza
This is the best pizza oven! We had an Ooni for about 4 years. It was great but we wanted a pizza oven that heated with gas but one we could also use wood at the same time.

Oh my goodness is it fantastic!! It heats up quick. As soon as you put the wood in, you turn the gas down. Once it needs heated up again, turn the gas up. Works like a charm. Our backyard pizzas are the favorite pizzas of our family and friends. Would definitely recommend. You will not be disappointed!

Best purchase for a pizza fan like me
