Progress of our Spherical Pizza Oven
Here is Progress of our Pizza Oven.
Thanks for the Oven building disk.
Many times I have looked for construction inspiration to the finer details on the disk.
I know you like fire brick ovens, I went for a spherical dome with refractory cement for the heat face (dome).
Then on top is 25mm blanket (1″), plus 2 x 25mm (2″ total thickness) layers of vermiculite thermal insulation.
I have a final mortar coat to go on the dome.
As you see the pizza oven is part of an outdoor kitchen (with built-in BBQ as well) construction which I started first with the concrete footing back on 17 August.
I got pretty good at brick arches I reckon.
I lost track of the hours on the whole project, that’s how I was enjoying it.
Been a labor of love. The oven and thew hole kitchen everything is covered under the roof. See the chimney going up.
Had 1 pizza cooking session and first up bare bake on the bricks.
Again thanks for the Oven building disk – lots of great ideas there.
