After a long two-year wait without new stuff packs in Sims 4, the much-anticipated Sims 4 Home Chef Hustle has arrived! Beyond the fresh CAS and Build & Buy additions, this latest pack introduces three transformative kitchen appliances: a stand mixer, a waffle maker, and, notably, the Brick Pizza Oven.

How to Craft Your Dream Rustic Brick Pizza Oven
While the pizza oven already looks pretty standard for any kitchen, it wouldn’t hurt to add a bit more *spice* to your kitchen. Why not make it look more appropriate for a rustic pizzeria or a homestyle kitchen by creating a brick pizza oven out of it?
Step 1: Setting Up the Space
Before building anything, open the cheat bar with Ctrl + Shift + C and make sure to type in the cheat bb.moveobjects on for this build tutorial to work without a hitch. Now, let’s-a go!
Start off by lining up your kitchen counters before adding any kitchen appliances. Then add the pizza oven from the Home Chef Hustle and lastly, create a basement or lower floor room directly below your pizza oven.
PRO TIP: As much as possible, keep counters placed on full-tiles instead of half-tiles or quarter tiles. This is to make it easier to create a full room below the counter with a pizza oven.
Step 2: Adding the Brick Pizza Oven
Next is to add this brick fireplace from Jungle Adventure in all its vibrant textures and colors! Size it down first by clicking the ‘[‘ key on your keyboard (or RT + LT + left in your controller) and then place it on the room below.
Then simply elevate the fireplace by pressing Ctrl+9 (or RT + LT + up for console) until the item’s green grid reaches the top of the wall. Once it reaches that point, elevate it 9 more times for the fireplace to be levelled on top of the counters on the floor above.
Step 3: And Now the Finishing Touches
For a more realistic experience, don’t forget to add similar lighting on the floor below so that the fireplace can blend easily with the items on the above floor. You can elevate it again with Ctrl+9 (or RT + LT + up for console), or size it down with the ‘[‘ key on your keyboard (or RT + LT + left in your controller)
And now, your Sims are free to use the pizza oven with a brick façade for that extra touch of pizza flavor realness. Look at how snug the pizza oven fits inside the fireplace grate!
If you’re building the pizza oven on the 2nd floor, don’t worry about ruining your build’s 1st floor! Just do all the steps above and delete the walls you built on the lower floor. The fireplace may be seen on the 1st floor during Live mode BUT it won’t block your Sims’ path nor can it be seen when viewed in first person mode.
