"Great Pizza for the World"

Launching OONI

With a vision for great pizza for the world and an innovative prototype, Kristian and Darina launched their first Ooni oven project on Kickstarter in November 2012. They quickly swept past their funding goal, and Ooni established a global audience from the outset. It turns out there’s little that unites people more than awesome pizza! It blew folks’ minds to cook incredible pizza in just 60 seconds using their own outdoor oven, for such an affordable price. The product quickly drew supporters, media and retailer interest from around the world.

The Story So Far

Since our launch Ooni has grown into a multi award-winning business that sells products all over the world. Ooni’s founders are so stoked to have brought in a mindblowing team of international dynamos. 

Innovation is core to Ooni and we’ve gone on to release new awesome pizza oven models – including Ooni 3Ooni Pro and Ooni Koda – as well as hardwood pellets our ovens run on wood, charcoal and gas so now there’s an Ooni for everyone. We also have a range of must-have accessories + Ooni ‘merch’ for pizza lovers.

Our Impact

Sure, world domination is great, but we care about building a business for good and paying it forward, too. We’re a kind business made up of kind people.

We believe that businesses have a responsibility to have a positive impact on the world. That’s why 1% of our annual turnover is actively managed for social and environmental causes. We are a member of 1% for the Planet, who can totally vouch for us!
