SPECIAL CORD SET
INSTRUCTIONS
A short power supply cord is provided to
reduce the risk of becoming entangled in
or tripping over a long cord.
Longer extension cords are available and
may be used if care is exercised in their
use. If a long extension cord is used, the
marked electrical rating of the extension
cord must be at least as great as the
electrical rating of the appliance, and the
longer cord should be arranged so that it
will not drape over the counter top or
tabletop where it can be tripped over or
pulled on by children.
1. Housing – brushed stainless steel
2. Removable Wire Rack
3. Door
4. Removable Crumb Tray
5. 30-Minute Timer Control Knob with
Bell Signal
6. Power Indicator Light – indicator
light signals the pizza oven is on.
7. Power Cord
8. Pizza Mesh (not shown) – When
baking fresh pizza, the pizza mesh

9. Pizza Peel (not shown) – Can be
used to insert and remove the pizza
mesh in the oven. Can also be used
for cutting and serving pizza.
10. Pizza Stone – To achieve best
results when baking bread, pizza and
pie crusts. The stone absorbs excess
moisture and distributes heat evenly
to make the crust light and crispy. It
fits on the rack to slide in and out of
the oven easily.
BEFORE FIRST USE
Remove all packaging materials and any
promotional labels or stickers from your
new Cuisinart™ Pizza Oven. Be sure all
parts (listed under Parts and Features) of
your new appliance have been included
before discarding any packaging materials. You may want to keep the box and
packing materials for use at a later date.
Before using your Cuisinart™ Pizza Oven
for the first time, remove any dust from
shipping by wiping clean with a damp
cloth. Clean the removable wire rack,
pizza peel, and pizza mesh with warm
water, a small amount of dishwashing
liquid and a nonabrasive sponge or
cleaning pad. The pizza stone can be
wiped with a damp cloth, not with
dishwashing liquid.
DO NOT IMMERSE THE BODY OF THE
UNIT IN WATER.
1.Insert the wire rack into the grooves
on both sides of the interior wall.
2.Insert the crumb tray. (Do not operate
the pizza oven without the crumb tray
in place.)
3.Place the pizza oven on a clean, flat
surface where you intend to cook.
4.Plug the pizza oven into a 120 Volt 60
Hz AC electrical outlet.
5.Never thaw frozen pizza before
baking. Your pizza oven is designed
to bake it at 450°F.
OPERATING
INSTRUCTIONS
The oven will get very hot during use.
Use handles only and do not cover the
appliance. The top of the pizza oven can
be used as a plate warmer.
1.Plug the power cord into the wall
outlet.
2.Lightly sprinkle the stone with
cornmeal (flour can burn) prior to
heating. Place the pizza stone in the
oven to preheat.
3.Turn oven on by rotating the timer
knob clockwise; the power indicator
will light up. Preheat pizza stone by
placing stone in oven and turning
timer to 30 minutes.
4. Place pizza on preheated pizza stone
and set timer for recommended
baking time. The baking temperature
is preset. When timer reaches the
OFF/0 position, the power light
indicator and pizza oven will turn off
and a bell will signal pizza is ready.
If Using Fresh Pizza Dough:
• Prepare pizza dough on the pizza
mesh by shaping and rolling the
dough, simultaneously preheating the
pizza stone, as mentioned above.
• Finish making the pizza by placing
your favorite toppings on the dough.
• Slide the pizza mesh onto the pizza
stone using the pizza peel.
• Once pizza is done, use the pizza
peel to remove the pizza (including
mesh) from the oven and place on a
cooling rack. Do not remove the pizza
stone. Separate the pizza from the
mesh and place on pizza peel to cut
it. A pizza cutter can be used directly
on the peel to slice your pizza.
If Using Frozen Pizza:
• Once the oven has been preheated,
place the frozen pizza on the pizza
stone. The pizza mesh is not needed
for frozen pizzas.
• Once pizza is done, use the pizza
peel to remove the pizza from the
oven. Do not remove pizza stone.
A pizza cutter can be used directly on the
peel to slice your pizza.
WARNING: Cooked pizza can be very
hot. Handle with care.
CLEANING AND CARE
Caution: Before cleaning appliance,
make sure it has cooled down. Do not
immerse body or the cord in any liquid.
1.Always allow the oven to cool
completely before cleaning.
2.Make sure the oven is unplugged and
the timer is in the OFF position.
3.Do not use abrasive cleansers, as
they will damage the finish. Simply
wipe the exterior with a clean damp
cloth and dry thoroughly. Apply the
cleansing agent to a cloth, not to the
pizza oven, before cleaning.
4.To clean interior walls, use a damp
cloth and a mild liquid detergent.
Never use harsh abrasives as these
could damage the oven surface.
5.To remove crumbs, slide out the
crumb tray and discard crumbs. Wipe
clean and replace. To remove bakedon grease, soak the tray in warm
soapy water or use nonabrasive
cleaners. Never operate the oven
without the crumb tray in place.
6.Remove the wire rack and hand wash
with warm soapy water; it can also
be washed in the dishwasher.
7.To clean the wire mesh and pizza
peel, hand wash with warm soapy
water and let dry.
8.To clean the pizza stone, allow it to
cool before cleaning. To remove
baked-on foods, scrape with a
spatula and rinse in warm water. Do
not soak or clean with detergent or
soapy water as the stone may absorb
the taste and smell of the detergent.
Let the stone air-dry completely
before your next use. The pizza stone
is NOT dishwasher-safe.

card does not eliminate the need for the consumer to maintain the original proof of purchase in
order to obtain the warranty benefits. In the event
that you do not have proof of purchase date, the
purchase date for purposes of this warranty will
be the date of manufacture.
If your Cuisinart™ Pizza Oven should prove to
be defective within the warranty period, we will
repair it, or if we think necessary, replace it. To
obtain warranty service, simply call our toll-free
number 1-800-726-0190 for additional information

of any Cuisinart® product that is being returned,
we recommend you use a traceable, insured

been authorized by Cuisinart.
This warranty does not cover any damage caused
by accident, misuse, shipment or other ordinary
household use.
This warranty excludes all incidental or consequential damages. Some states do not allow the

may not apply to you.
CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS ONLY:
California law provides that for In-Warranty
Service, California residents have the option of
returning a nonconforming product (A) to the store
where it was purchased or (B) to another retail
store which sells Cuisinart products of the same
type.
The retail store shall then, at its discretion, either
repair the product, refer the consumer to an
independent repair facility, replace the product,
or refund the purchase price less the amount
directly attributable to the consumer’s prior usage
of the product. If the above two options do not
result in the appropriate relief to the consumer,
the consumer may then take the product to an
independent repair facility if service or repair can
be economically accomplished. Cuisinart and not
the consumer will be responsible for the reasonable cost of such service, repair, replacement, or
refund for nonconforming products under warranty.
California residents may also, according to their
preference, return nonconforming products directly to Cuisinart for repair, or if necessary, replacement, by calling our Consumer Service Center
toll-free at 1-800-726-0190.

1 medium onion, cut into 1-inch pieces
(approximately 1 cup chopped)
4
cloves garlic, finely chopped
¾
teaspoon dried basil
¼
cup dry white wine
1 can (28 ounces) plum tomatoes,
with juices
2 sprigs fresh basil (10-12 large
leaves)
½
teaspoon kosher salt
¼teaspoon freshly ground black
pepper
¼ -¾ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes,
(optional, to taste, for a spicier
sauce)
Heat the oil over medium heat in a 2¾-quart
saucepan; add the onion, garlic, and dried
basil. Cook, stirring for 2 to 3 minutes, until
the onions begin to soften and the basil
becomes fragrant. Stir in the white wine and
allow the mixture to simmer until just
evaporated. Add the canned tomatoes with
their juices, basil sprigs, salt, black and red
pepper. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat
to low, cover loosely and simmer for 40 to 45
minutes. Blend sauce by either using a hand
blender directly in saucepan or carefully
purée in batches in a regular blender or food
processor.
Return sauce to pan if necessary and
continue to simmer sauce, uncovered for an
additional 30 to 40 minutes to achieve a thick
sauce.
Taste and adjust seasonings accordingly.
