Exactly like Ed said. Depending on which manufacturer bricks come from, sometimes they are not too precise. In such situation, for best fitting one can go through sorting and placing bricks one by one on a flat/concrete ground creating and to see provisional but nicer hearth. When the real hearth is done and if it ends up with some gaps between bricks don't fill these gaps, the ash from fire will pack in the gaps soon. it's not difficult to make the cooking surface very smooth when using the clay/sand bed under floor bricks; it's much easier to cook on nice flat floor. If you happen not to make it flat you can grind the spot where pizza will be cooked - otherwise paddle and shifting pots on the floor will grind popped out brick corners over the time. r
