3 Upcoming Holidays Perfect for an Outdoor Pizza Oven

Outdoor pizza ovens have quickly become one of the country's newest must-have pieces of exterior design and functionality. Not only do they make incredibly tasty dishes, but they can do so in efficient time too (a pizza can be made in as little as 90 seconds after a wood burning pizza oven has heated up)

With this season's winter (hopefully) a thing of the past and spring near full bloom, it's time to start thinking about summertime plans and holidays. If you've been eyeing wood fired pizza ovens for some time, now is the perfect time to buy. In addition to the summer weather in general, there are a couple of holidays on the horizon that lend themselves to cooking and the outdoors.

Here are three upcoming holidays that make for the perfect excuse to treat yourself to the purchase of the outdoor wood fired pizza oven you've been wanting.

  • Mother's Day: The day to honor the woman who gave you birth is quickly approaching, and it's time to come up with something a little more creative than a card and bouquet of flowers. Sure, those things are nice too, but why not treat your mom to a day of relaxation. Invite her over and while she's laying in the sun drinking something cold, you can make a pizza topped with all her favorites! She'll appreciate the time alone; the delicious Italian cuisine will be a delightful bonus.
  • Memorial Day: A day meant to honor those that have passed serving this great country is typically met with local parades and outdoor barbecues. This year you can invite everyone back to your place and enjoy pizza of all kinds.
  • Fourth of July: Changing typical traditions of eating hot dogs and hamburgers on this day might bring claims of blasphemy from some folks, but don't let that scare you. The average person eats about 46 slices of pizza every year and 93% of Americans eat at least one piece per month. Some people might be thrown off a bit at first, but once they get a smell and take a bite, any traditional loyalties will likely go out the window.

Due to the time of year and inherent qualities, these are the type of holidays that lend themselves to spending time relaxing outdoors. One of the only things that can make something like that any better is doing it with a piece of wood fired oven pizza in your hand. Or stomach.
