since 1992

Rotating deck pizza oven 

In the late 1980s, Ferdinando Marana envisioned a culinary innovation that would transform the pizza-making process. His vision was clear: an Italian pizza oven, either wood-fired or gas-powered, that could autonomously rotate pizzas and maintain a consistently warm baking plate. The objective was as straightforward as it was revolutionary: to minimize waiting times and ensure that every pizza, from the start of service to its end, emerged from the oven perfectly baked. After years of dedicated research and development, the vision became a reality. In 1992, Marana Forni was founded, marking a milestone in the world of pizza ovens. The company achieved a significant feat by securing the world's first patent for a rotating deck pizza oven designed explicitly for pizzerias. With this accomplishment, the Rotoforno SU&GIU® was born. 

In the world of pizza making, it's all about efficiency and consistency. Italian pizza ovens have long been celebrated for their excellence, and it is in this area that the turntable pizza oven, like Rotoforno Classico, Genius and Su&Giu models, stands out as a groundbreaking innovation. These ovens are more than just tools, they are the secret to a well-oiled, smooth-running pizzeria, serving as reliable workhorses that enhance the entire pizza-making process.

Rotating deck pizza ovens revolutionize the pizza-making process, allowing for a seamless and continuous workflow. As the pizza maker meticulously crafts each pizza, the oven takes on the role of cooking, ensuring that the pizza is perfectly baked. This setup maximizes productivity and minimizes downtime, as the oven signals when each pizza is ready, enabling the swift introduction of the next pizza. With a rotating deck pizza oven, the focus remains on the artistry of pizza creation. 

One of the primary goals of any pizzeria is to serve customers quickly. Rotating deck pizza ovens excel in this regard, efficiently streamlining the pizza-making process. By uniformly distributing heat within the cooking chamber, these ovens guarantee consistent and even cooking. There is no room for undercooked or burnt crusts, ensuring that each pizza is served to perfection. This attribute is particularly advantageous during peak service hours, where customers can enjoy reduced wait times. 

Why choose a rotating deck pizza oven 

Rotating deck pizza oven

It always cooks at the ideal temperature thanks to the Rotoforno SU&GIU® rotating deck pizza oven, which can raise towards the dome to reach a higher temperature. It also guarantees a lower consumption of wood, gas or pellets. If we always maintain a high temperature in the moments when the work is resting, we consume fuel unnecessarily. And in some cases there is a risk of overheating the hotplate because we do not cover it with pizzas. In these circumstances, SU&GIU® allows you to keep the temperature low, because by raising the hotplate, the pizzas come close to the dome, where the temperature is 40 to 100°C more. 

An intuitive console provides effortless control for a Italian pizz oven. The operation of the oven both practical and user-friendly. Designed specifically for pizza makers, the console features joysticks and simple buttons to quickly and efficiently adjust all oven parameters. This streamlined control system ensures that temperature, rotation speed and other settings can be easily adjusted, increasing the efficiency of the pizza baking process. 

In addition, highly efficient stones ensure superior performance of the rotating deck pizza oven. The refractory material used for the construction of the Italian pizza ovens has a high density and features higher mechanical strength and wear resistance compared to conventional materials. These highly efficient bricks are the secret to the oven’s exceptional performance in heat storage, heat transfer and heat recovery. One of the most remarkable features of the rotary pizza oven is its versatility in installation. It can be seamlessly installed in virtually any room, even in environments with narrow passageways that are only 70 cm wide. This flexibility offers a wide range of installation options and makes it easy to find the perfect spot for your rotating deck pizza oven. Whether you are running a pizzeria with limited capacity. 

Despite their advanced features, these rotary-bottom pizza ovens are designed for ease of use and are suitable for both experienced pizza makers and pizza novices, making the art of pizza baking accessible to all. Rotary pizza ovens perfectly combine tradition and innovation, preserving the authenticity of Neapolitan pizza while redefining the standards of perfection. 

Today, the company strives to constantly develop the world of Italian pizza ovens with wood, gas, pellet and combination firing through new patents and ideas that anticipate market needs.

The oven that revolutionized the world of pizza


This is one mighty oven
If you come across this oven in a pizzeria it means that whoever is making the pizzas is a proper pizza chef.
Michele Scopelliti
Excellent, practical and most of all a massive help
I also use it to bake bread! Whoever is critical before trying it is an idiot: try it and then we’ll speak. I can assure you because I too was sceptical. I can recommend it from first-hand experience.
Massimo Di Pasquale
I recommend it
In my business, I’ve tried the oven for Naples-style pizzas with the new gas burner and I have to say it’s excellent. I’ve also tried the wood-fired oven, and with the same results. Recommended by the FUSCO TWINS.
Danilo Fusco
Competent and friendly staff
From the pizzeria “Benvenuti al Sud” in Mortara, a heartfelt thanks to Beppe and Nino, who installed our oven on Tuesday. A magnificent oven in every way. Marana: a name with guarantees.
