Making pizza at home with your Ooni pizza oven can feel like you’ve opened up your own pizzeria. However, your Ooni isn’t quite complete without a few essential accessories that help you go from a pizza-making intern to a full-fledged pizza-making machine. You’ve read our 10 things to know before buying an Ooni pizza oven, but now it’s time to find out which dozen pizza accessories will take your pies to the next level. Which ones will you add to your kitchen?
1. Ooni Dual Platform Digital Scales
Most of us think of pizzas as something you slap together for dinner real quick for the kids to enjoy. But measuring the weight of your pizza dough balls can make a difference when it comes time to roll them out and place them in your Ooni pizza oven. That’s where the Ooni Dual Platform Digital Scales come in.
With these scales, you can measure each dough ball in grams and ensure consistency. The brushed stainless steel surface is easy to clean, and the dual LCD screen makes it easy to read the measured weight. Ooni even includes a smaller dish—with its own readout display—where you can measure herbs and yeast. Ooni also offers a two-year warranty when you register your new scales on their website.
2. Pizza Cookbooks
It would take you lifetimes to work through all the pizza recipes out there, including some of our favorites:

If you want to start with the basics, these 25 best Ooni recipes to step up your cooking game are a great place to start. Ooni also offers pizza cookbooks you can use to refine your pizza-making skills and even pick up a few tips along the way.
3. Ooni Pizza Topping Station
What’s an Ooni pizza night without a bonafide Ooni Pizza Topping Station? This raised and angled ingredient tray holds two larger 1.6-liter containers and four smaller 0.8-liter containers just waiting to be filled with pepperonis, mozzarella, olives, sausage, shredded cheeses of your choice, and any other toppings you can think of.
Don’t worry about fitting this tray in your fridge, either. Each container lifts out of the holder and comes with a custom-fitted lid. You can easily wipe down the tray when you’re done and place the containers in the dishwasher when your tasty pizza pies are baking.
4. Ooni Pizza Peels
Pizza peels help you place a pizza in your Ooni pizza oven and remove it when it’s done baking. These flat, paddle-looking accessories are a must if you make even one or two pizzas. How else would you get your pizza anywhere near a 900+ degrees Fahrenheit oven?
Ooni Pizza Peels come in various shapes and sizes. The Ooni Pizza Turning Peel helps you turn your pie for even baking, while the Ooni Wooden Pizza Peel works well for serving. In between, the Ooni Perforated Pizza Peel makes loading pizzas easy by allowing excess flour to escape from the bottom of the pie before it goes into the pizza oven.
5. Ooni Pizza Oven Table
Ooni Pizza Oven Tables bring your Ooni pizza oven to your level to make it easier to work with. These pizza tables also incorporate adjustable shelves, durable casters, and various hooks for your pizza peels. If you’re not in front of the pizza oven, use these tables as a sturdy work surface for other projects.
6. Ooni Pizza Bench Scraper
For all those sticky dough messes, use your new Ooni Pizza Bench Scraper to scoop up the excess dough and make clean up a cinch. You can also use these bench scrapers for splitting ingredients into bite-sized pieces or for other baking recipes.
7. Ooni Pizza Cutter Rocker Blade
If you’ve ever watched a pizza maker cut a pie, you’ve probably seen an Ooni Pizza Cutter Rocker Blade in action. This stainless steel blade stretches 14 inches to make slicing and serving a 30-second task. The easy-grip handle is built for both hands and keeps your fingertips away from the toppings—at least until it’s time to dig in.
8. Ooni Digital Infrared Thermometer
If you’re not using an Ooni Digital Infrared Thermometer to check the temperature of your Ooni pizza oven before you stick a pie inside, the interior might not be hot enough to get that crispy crust and those delightfully melted toppings. Accurate and easy to read, this digital infrared thermometer is a must-have if you want personal pizzas baked to perfection.
9. The Ooni Dual-Sided Grizzler Plate
The Ooni Dual-Sided Grizzler Plate requires a bit of an introduction. Griddle on one side and sizzler on the other, this plate provides a smooth surface for delicate foods like eggs and a ridged side to achieve visually appealing grill marks. Made from cast iron, the Grizzler Plate fits easily in your Ooni pizza oven for even more versatility in whipping up some tasty dishes.
10. Ooni Pizza Oven Gloves
Yes, you read that right earlier: the Ooni pizza oven reaches temperatures well above 900 degrees Fahrenheit. Invest in a solid pair of Ooni Pizza Oven Gloves to protect your hands from those blistering temperatures. Durable leather keeps the heat off your skin and is easy to clean, while aluminum internals disperse heat.
11. Ooni Pizza Oven Brush
When the fire’s out, bellies are full, and it’s time for cleaning up, the Ooni Pizza Oven Brush gets the job done right. This wooden-handled brush is long and sturdy enough to reach the back of your Ooni pizza oven easily. The flat scraper on the end pushes back against stubborn baked-on ingredients while the stainless steel bristles scrub away ash. The handle even incorporates a hole at one end for hanging near your Ooni pizza.
12. Ooni Pizza Oven Cover
Without an Ooni Pizza Oven Cover, your Ooni pizza oven remains susceptible to rust and premature wear. Ooni offers several covers, each specific to your Ooni pizza oven model. Invest in a cover for less than $100 to protect your pizza-making investment for years to come.
