Project to build a wood fired pizza oven

A wood fired pizza oven is somewhat slow to build and they do not bake bakes as fast as a microwave oven, but only the taste is what inspires people to build these structures of brick and mortar in your yard. The charred wood and smoke go beyond novelty, and they bake a pizza with wood stove can not be compared to other kitchen appliance. It is also much cheaper because it only requires firewood to bake.

The foundation, support and isolation
First of all you need to find the place where you want to build a wood-fired oven pizza. Most of the time the outside is built, unless you have a large industrial style kitchen with adequate ventilation. Having chosen a place in your garden for the oven, the foundation slab should be built on level ground. If the floor is not level, must be dug up and flattened so that the cement can be applied on a traditional wire mesh. The better the foundation the better the support. The holder and furnace insulation are built on the foundation slab and also allow contain the heat of combustion of firewood and baked and support dome. The foundation must be built in a kitchen at a comfortable height.

Cooking surface
The cooking surface should be approximately 40 inches (102 cm) in diameter, depending This surface is usually made with high quality bricks. Bricks are located on the dome which will wear more quickly because they are located closer to the firing, so make sure them loose before constructing the dome, as may be easily removed from the top of the same and can be re-positioned over time.

The process of construction of the dome is equal to the one made when building the foundation. The wire mesh should arm domed and insulation must be covered with concrete. The bricks to build the dome must be of the same quality as those used with the cooking surface. The additional cost of brick construction with better quality is paid over time. Also, high temperature mortar used as recommended by as not be damaged more easily and maintain heat in the furnace. You must install a vent to help release gas that can not go out the top.

And exterior finish
Once the main oven elements are in place, you can start with the finish of the oven, so you can complement the exterior of your house and your yard.
