Step1

After selecting place, first step is to make base. You have to dig earth and place the wooden mould (made according to base dimension) by ensuring it is horizontal. Then you have to mix cement, sharp sand and aggregates in a ratio of 1:2:4. After mixing them properly, you have to pour in wooden mould. You can use long wooden baton to make it flat. You have to allow it three days to be strong.

Step2

After making base, you have to build a small wall on the edge of basement. You can use red brick to make this wall. On this small wall, hearth will be build.

Step3

Then you have to build hearth and pizza dome. You can make a arch using fire clay at the front side of hearth. On the floor of hearth, you can give a layer of vermiculite mixture (mixing with Portland cement). It will help to keep your hearth warm for long time.

Step4

Inside of hearth you have to place ceramic blanket for making it insulated. Ceramic blanket is most effective insulating material for pizza oven. It is quite expensive than other insulating materials.

Step5

Then you have to install chimney for removing smoke produced during baking pizza. Chimney may be made of steel, brick or cast. But chimney made of steel will be better to use for ceramic pizza oven.

Step6

After that, you have to clad the outside of dome and hearth. During cladding you can use aluminum foil between brick layer and mortar layer. Aluminum acts as gas and water barrier. It protects wall from rain water. During cladding you can mix coloring substance to make your pizza oven colored and decorated.
