Recycled clay bricks used in building pizza oven
Here is my story.
I first saw a pizza oven on one of the Jamie Oliver TV shows, I then did a lot of research on the Internet and found your site, my background is that I spent 15 years in the building trade as a bricklayer, I now work with a manufacturer of large alternators so both of these have helped with the project but are not essential, some times it is just a matter of laying it out dry and going from there.
I found the site and the DVD a real help, there is so much info on there, I would say that these are the new bar b q, we have had so many parties and good times based around the oven, even on new years eve, pizza being cooked all night the beer flowing …
… and then there was the disaster with planned cooking many pizzas LOL I will fill you in on that LOL … It all happen on new years eve, rather than me rolling out pizza dough all night and making pizzas, I made pizza boards with wooden battens on them so that I could stack up pizzas ready to go into the oven, the problems all started when we tried to get the pizza bases off the boards, they had all stuck to the boards, it was a right mess, in the end we ended up with pizza folded in half tasted lovely but did not look that good, I have tried it once since and put loads of flour on the board and they did not stick. Always learning in progress!

Reclaimed fire bricks. I would buy new next time, to many variations as it was a mix of various types of firebricks.
