About Us


We are Forno Nardona and we bring the thousand-year old Italian tradition of outdoor pizza oven cooking right to you.

We design and build hand-crafted wood-fired pizza ovens. It is our mission to build the highest quality wood-fired ovens on the market, so we only use top-of-the-line materials.  Combined with our fine craftsmanship, your oven will maintain its beauty and longevity 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’.  Our first built wood fired pizza oven was for personal use at our home.  BJ was working at The Home Depot at the time and was sharing photos of his oven when a friend asked him to build one for him too.  So 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 of 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!
