There is no substitute for pizza. The simple combination of bread, cheese, and sauce comes together in such harmony that the perfection that it forms can withstand manipulation. That is, manipulation in the form of toppings; mess with the three basic ingredients and the pizza becomes something else. Luckily, the foundation that pizza is built upon has a very wide latitude when it comes to just what exactly comprises bread, cheese, and sauce. However, there is another set of three that comes into play when talking about pizza: location, location, location.

The Camp Chef Italia Artisan Pizza Oven ($399.95) is a portable outdoor pizza oven designed to bring pizza greatness to the great outdoors -- or even just the back yard. Weighing around 50 pounds, the propane-powered pizza oven fires out 17,000 BTUs and has built-in valve ignition. The pizza oven has stainless-steel construction with a double-walled ceiling and a removable pizza stone, and offers a convenient way to get the pizza party started and keep it going.

Capable of cooking two pizzas at once, the portable oven is ideal for a pizza party. Remember, though, good pizza is cooked at hot temperatures, so that pizza stone will stay hot for a while. But that's OK, it's not like you're going to want to move after eating all that pizza.
