Building a barrel pizza oven is quite an experience and you will definitely enjoy it. To make the excessive fun, you need to first collect all the required materials and go through the barrel pizza oven building plans and procedures. In addition, understand what you want as to adjust the dimensions appropriately.

The building process

The process begins with laying the foundation, which can be made of clay, sand, or cement. After that, you need to raise the foundation to about 20” then set the oven. Remember, the barrel pizza oven is rectangular in shape and the sizes given are for the oven interior. Therefore, right from the foundation, you need to ensure the outer measurements are more so as to accommodate the preferred interior dimension.

To make the dome, you can use locally sourced materials e.g. a barrel.
