The hunger for better food that sparked an innovation in product design.
What began as one man’s quest for the perfect home-cooked pizza, resulted in a localised food revolution and a world-class range of innovative stone and fire products.
Meet Tom Gozney, the designer and innovator behind Gozney. The story starts in 2010, when Tom, driven by a passion for food and love for the ancient practice of stone and fire cooking, set up The Stone Bake Oven Company. Its success laid the foundations to launch a comprehensive range of commercial and residential wood and gas fired pizza ovens that can now be found in a great number of the world’s leading commercial kitchens, gardens, backyards and patios from the UK to Europe, Australia and America.
As the Gozney team has grown, the focus has consistently remained on the creation of delicious food and innovative design. Tom’s objective has been to listen to customer’s challenges and innovate as a direct response to their needs. A clear example of this has been the creation of Roccbox, the world’s first portable, insulated stone floor oven, which enables cooking with fire and stone to be accessible to a wider audience. In 2018, the existing product lines were consolidated under one company ‘Gozney’, synonymous with quality and innovation.
Today, Tom and the Gozney team push design boundaries and incorporate advanced user-friendly technology to achieve one ultimate goal: to enable everyone to share incredible food with family and friends.
The Stone Bake Oven Company
Tom Gozney set up The Stone Bake Oven Company in 2010, offering a range of high quality, precast stone ovens. Designed and made in the UK, the ovens inspired a movement in stone cooking at home. The Primo and Mezzo ranges were quickly snapped up by celebs, such as Sarah Beeny, Paul Hollywood, Michelin star chef Jean Christophe Novelli and restaurants like River Cottage.
Gozney Professional Ovens
The ovens proved to be such a success that the company grew and added Gozney Professional Ovens – developing the most innovative, efficient and reliable ovens for professional use. Gozney Ovens led the way with modular technology, temperature-control feedback systems and exceptional customer service, and can now be found in a great number of the world’s leading commercial kitchens, including MOD, Franco Manca, Pizza Pilgrims, L'Enclume or Black Axe Mangal.View commercial ovens
With a clear gap in the market for a consumer-facing product, Roccbox was launched via an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign which raised $1.2m in just 45 days. Using the same technology and materials as in professional Gozney ovens, yet shrunk into a fun, stand-out portable pizza oven, Roccbox quickly became a global success, with a cult following throughout the UK, Europe, Australia and North America.Learn more
After building a pizza oven in his back garden, Tom began hand-building brick pizza ovens for local restaurants.
Researching and refining refractory materials, Tom designed a compact precast, affordable stone oven and launched The Stone Bake Oven Company.
Gozney Professional Ovens was launched alongside The Stone Bake Oven Company specialising in wood and gas fired, commercial grade stone ovens.
Continued growth sees Gozney Professional Ovens becoming the chosen supplier for some of the UK's best restaurants and pizzerias.
Gozney invents Roccbox, a compact, portable, stone floor oven, which was launched via Indiegogo raising $1.2million USD in just 45 days.
