Pizza oven in Cape Town South Africa

Hi Rado – thanks,
I will get a few more photos and send, with pictures of some of the first Pizza’s made, *(on this Friday night I am getting about 12 people to come around, so we’ll cook some more).

Also I will try and find some more of the initial stages of the building for you to look at them – but one thing – I did not use any fire brick on the inside, and only normal solid hard baked clay bricks, so I already see that I am loosing a lot of heat from the outside of the dome. But I am getting better in thinking about what to do with improving of this oven.

I don’t have any insulation. Maybe you could advise me on a way to put insulation inside the oven? I know it will be easier to do on the outside, but then it does not look so nice anymore?

  1. I am in the process of building my own Pizza oven and it looks like you were using a kit or was it your own design?
    Could you help me to obtain a kit for the oven?
    Hope to hear from you soon.

  2. I am the maintenance manager at shelley point hotel. We have got a pizza oven that is cracking. What can I use to repair the cracks. The cracks are on the out side of the oven.
    Can you please give me some advice. Thanks

    Hi Nicolaas,
    Is it a round igloo shape on the outside? Best would be if you email me some images of the oven so I can comment of what to do after I see the details, the whole structure from the outside, details of the cracks, and also the floor internally and some walls with the ceiling. No worries there is always a way how to improve or fix all things. Send large photos as they originally come out from a camera, that way there are better details to see for me.
