Top 10 Ooni Oven Recipes That Aren’t Pizza
1 Steak in the Ooni Pizza Oven
If you have a decent cast iron pan or skillet the Ooni oven is great for cooking a steak quickly at high heat, and it also imparts a delicious wood smoke taste.
It’s best to heat the cast iron skillet or pan first in the Ooni so that when you add your steak the pan will be hot enough to sear it on all sides.
If the fat in the steak flares up don’t panic just move the pan around a little. Crispy fat is tasty fat.
2 Cheesy Garlic Bread in the Ooni
Cheesy garlic bread is absolutely delicious in the Ooni oven, and it’s really easy to do.
You only need garlic, oil, cheese and parsley to top your bread dough and you have an amazing side dish or appetizer.

3 Delicious Meatball Sliders with Caramelized Onions and Cheese
This great recipe for your Ooni pizza oven comes directly from Ooni themselves.
Sliders are a fantastic side dish or starter for any party or get together, and infusing them with wood-fired taste in your Ooni oven will leave your guests craving more.
This Ooni oven recipe is a real winner but also easy to make.
4 Teriyaki Salmon in the Ooni Oven
This recipe also comes from Ooni themselves and it’s absolutely delicious.
Salmon has a high fat content which allows it to stand up well to the high heat in an Ooni oven.
Using a cast iron pan or skillet which conducts the heat well means your delicious Teriyaki salmon fillet will be ready in minutes.
5 Lobster Tails and Wild Shrimp Recipe
This recipe is an absolutey fantastic way to cook lobster and wild shrimp (prawns in the UK) in your Ooni oven.
The flame that travels along the top of your Ooni oven imparts that smoky, sweet flavour that seafood deserves.
6 Goose Fat Roast Potatoes
This is another great recipe directly from Ooni themselves.
Roast potatoes do surprisingly well at the high heat an Ooni oven produces, giving that perfect combo of crispy outside and fluffy inside that we all know and love.
Goose fat (or you can substitute duck fat) is undeniably the most luxurious and effective way to crisp up roast potatoes.
7 Buffalo Chicken Wings
This is another fabulous recipe you might not have considered making in your Ooni oven.
You can choos between blue cheese dressing, Buffalo sauce or garlic parmesan sauce to serve with your Ooni cooked chicken wings.
Spoiler – all 3 are completely delicious and you might not be able to choose between them!
8 Focaccia Bread
Focaccia bread does really well in the Ooni oven and it takes on that delicious wood smoke really well too.
This is an easy but effective and rewarding recipe that you might keep coming back to again and again.
9 Moroccan Spiced Flatbreads
Flatbreads are the perfect thing to bake in your Ooni oven giving you a light woodsmoke flavour which pairs perfectly with any Middle Eastern tagine, or Middle Eastern dish.
Simple but hugely effective and tasty.
10 Smash Burgers in the Ooni Oven
Smash burgers have become a real go-to food in recent times because of their crispy and quickly cooked nature. Most people don’t think of making them in the Ooni oven however, but there’s absolutely no reason why not.
The high heat and short cooking time of smash burgers is absolutely perfect for the Ooni oven, and you can infuse that wonderful smoky taste that you won’t get from a pan or conventional oven.
