Hi everyone;

I really enjoyed looking at the photos of pizza ovens, pizza oven projects, and pizza.

Attached are photos of mine. It is a 42″ inside space diameter pompeii dome built on Forno Bravo plans.

The wall to the right displays a Macigno sandstone frieze that was from a building in Florence, carved about 1500 and brought to the US by Wm Randolph Hearst in 1932.

I have neighborhood parties — pizza is great, have done some bread but it is a lot of work to knead the dough.

I keep improving the doughs, the sauce — all made fresh by me. I get better and better supplies each time. I built my own make-table this summer that is an easily-carried box with 13 steel containers sitting on ice. Next time I start working with Caputo “00″ Pizzeria Flour.

PS Now that I am sending these pictures to you I am disappointed by not having good party pics or better pictures of pizza and bread. I have fired it 20 times but am so busy during parties that I rarely stop to take photos.
