Every pizzeria's centerpiece is its pizza oven, and the 'Disco Volante' pizzeria in Vienna, Austria is no different. Located in the middle of the dining area, the pizza oven is a gigantic disco ball, covered in hundreds of shiny, shimmering tiles that reflect a plethora of colors in the evening.

The oven is anchored by a central chimney that pivots and begins to rotate at a rate of one revolution per minute when dough is running in short supply. Designed by Austrian architect Lukas Galehr, 'Disco Volante,' or flying disc, transforms the restaurant into a sparkling disco in the evenings, when blasts of pink, green and blue dots flood the room and illuminate the disco ball, tiled floors and white walls. The pizzeria is modeled after an authentic Naples pizzeria with high, elevated ceilings, large windows and spacious setting.
