Solid granite arches were set into brick walls and most of the other material for building of this oven, such as bricks, was reclaimed, practically reused again.
Owen built his half spherical dome shape pizza oven on the terrace using proper firebricks. He has ordered empty pizza boxes as he is planing to sell/deliver pizzas within the neighborhood.
This pizza oven, as it was designed, is being heated by venting the heat into the oven through one channel from the fireplace below. The adjacent pool uses fiber optics to deliver colors of light.
I had no previous training in building trades. Nor I would take a course to learn how to build with bricks or work with building tools. Still I built my oven and the surrounding area.
Half-spherical shape pizza oven with tiled outside job plus decorative tiles beautifying its chimney and also the base. Built in Florida by Bruce who is prepared to take more custom building oven jobs like this one for new customers.
Instead of making roof, I spread a layer of concrete over the vermiculite insulation. Around the brick chimney I put expansion joint material which was sealed at the end with a flexible sealant.
I had a thought, if the 8*7*2 inch proper HEAVY fire bricks are supposed to be used to protect the industrial grade kiln steel shell, operated by a big cement company, I should be able to use them for building both the floor and the ceiling on my small in comparison brick oven.
The outdoor area is made of logs and the oven fits to it extremely practically. We have a fireplace in the log area also, often we sit close by the fire, listening its sounds, and have a few tasty cocktails while waiting for the oven to heat up. Loads of clear vertical grain Fir, and even heavy chunky logs – this wood looks fantastic and is very prized in the Pacific Northwest region.
Me and my dad we have built a pizza oven in the garden completely out of bricks with a stone base. We used one plastic barrel as a mould to make the brick vault. Just wandered if you were interested to see some miscellaneous photos of the oven.
I built this MTO wood fired brick oven in spring of 2009. For four years I immensely enjoyed using the oven. I also cooked in it during winter when the oven was completely covered with snow. Then we had to move to a new house. Therefore I am about to build my new oven. This time it’s gonna be the new MTO model, the third MTO model generation.
