About Us


We opened our doors in 2012 with the goal of building the highest quality hand-built wood-fired oven on the market. And we do just that by using the highest quality materials available which assures the beauty and longevity of your oven for many generations to come.

Forno Nardona brings the thousand-year old Italian tradition of outdoor pizza oven cooking right to your back yard. These hand-crafted Italian brick ovens pay homage to owner William “BJ” Hall’s Italian heritage. The company name Forno Nardona is actually derived from his grandmother’s maiden name Nardona and ‘forno’ which is Italian for ‘oven.’ BJ built his first wood fired pizza oven for his own home. His friends and neighbors came to him with ideas for their own ovens in their outdoor kitchens and wood fired pizza ovens, in the Tampa Bay area and a company was born.
