HOW ACUNTO OVENS ARE MADE

See how the Acunto is made on the hit Discovery Channel show “How it’s Made”

Acunto ovens are well known for their thick thermal insulation in the dome and beneath the baking surface. This ensures high heat retention and prevents cracking or popping of the floor; a common problem among Neapolitan brick oven brands. Additionally, the oven has a heat soak layer of volcanic material from Mount Vesuvius directly beneath the floor, laying between the baking surface and final insulation layer. This special layer stores extra energy, providing additional heat during peak hours at the time when it is most needed.

The dome shape is based on a variant of the Pompeii oven design, which creates a swirling effect of intense top heat needed to create the signature blistered crust of a proper Neapolitan pizza. Acunto ovens are certified by the Associazione Vera Pizza Napoletana as a trusted supplier within the framework of the tradition.

Every Acunto wood fired oven is still hand-built in their Naples workshop to ensure quality. The ovens are built with old-world durability, and there are indeed many examples of decades old Acunto ovens across Naples and Italy. When properly cared for, they can easily last for a lifetime and continue to produce incredible Neapolitan pizza.
