Forum / Cladding of pizza oven


Cladding is the final layer of the oven and may be either concrete or an additional layer of bricks. Some people prefer the aesthetics of a brick outer layer and so will utilize fire bricks for the internal dome, and then place a final cladding layer of regular building bricks over the top of insulation. Aside from being cheap and affordable, it also increases the the amount of time the heat will stay in your oven. Cladding proves to be an extra heat insulation for your oven and has many advantages including:

  • It stores all the heat energy.
  • You can cook items requiring less heat because the cladding stores the heat for a long time.
  • It slows down the temperature drop of the oven.
  • Aesthetically improves the appeal of the oven.
