yes, pizza in the great outdoors would be wonderful, any time. The open place on the first floor is usually used for storage of the fire wood.
After your oven gets white hot, that's after about 1 1/2 to 2 hours depends on how big is your dome, you can start to load pizzas in. Placing them simply on the hearth's floor, which is usually cooler then walls above, they will cook in approximately 3 minutes. You can leave a small fire on and pushed to the side, or have it stoped and embers swept out. This way you start again with pizzas as they are done the best in higher temperature environment. Then is the time for dishes, roasts, you can place many meals simply on the oven's floor or have them in pots. Breads and other larger bulky items go in as last when the temperature has droped.
