What is Ooni Day?
Ooni Day is a day to celebrate pizza, which is a baked flatbread topped with tomato sauce and cheese and baked in an Ooni pizza oven.
Of course, many toppings and sauces can be added, ranging from meats to vegetables or seafood.
How to celebrate Ooni Day
Celebrate by making at least one pizza. If you don’t have an Ooni pizza oven, well it’s time you get one!
Here’s What You Can Choose From
Ooni Pizza Ovens
You can still make wonderful pizza in your kitchen oven or even in your BBQ. Go to our Learn section to find lots of resources.
To celebrate, you can either create your own pizza masterpiece at home or take the family or friends out to your favorite pizza parlor.
Here’s How Our Friends at Ooni Will Celebrate Ooni Day
For every pizza cooked on Ooni Day, they will donate $/£/€ 1.00 to a hunger charity.
