About Us


Forno Nardona brings the thousand-year old Italian tradition of outdoor pizza oven cooking right to your backyard.

We design, hand-craft and install wood-fired pizza ovens across the world. It is our mission to build the highest quality wood-fired ovens on the market, and we do so by using top-of-the-line materials. Our fine craftsmanship assures the beauty and longevity of your oven for many generations to come.

Our traditional ovens pay homage to owner William “BJ” Hall’s Italian heritage. The company name of Forno Nardona was derived from his grandmother’s maiden name, Nardona, and the Italian word for oven, ‘Forno’. Hall first built a wood-fired pizza oven for personal use at his home. Upon seeing the finished product, friends and neighbors were quick to desire an outdoor pizza oven of their own. Thus, in 2012, Forno Nardona was born.

We specialize in creating outdoor spaces that are beautiful and functional.

At Forno Nardona, we work with you to design an oven that fits your style and needs. We offer several models of traditional pizza ovens, all which can be customized by look, size and finishes. We encourage you to bring your passion and enthusiasm to the design project. Take a look at our photo galleries for inspiration!
