Traditional wood fired ovens are notoriously challenging and fun to construct, and unique in character to the builder. Below are listed some pizza oven plans however it is generally recommended that individuals create their own plan based upon their desired oven shape, size, available materials, skills and budget. Pizza oven materials may be as cheap as mud or expensive as brick, cement and tiles. The dimensions of the plan will need to consider the location space, and time and funds available for construction.
I made a square oven with a flat top out of fire brick. On the top back of the oven I constructed a square chimney. I built four fires, small ones the first two times and everything went well. On the forth time, I wrapped the oven with insulation to get more heat to stay in. This is when my roof collapsed. Would someone give me advice on how to rebuild my top? Should I use metal to support my roof? Where should I place my chimney or do I need one? Thanks
Good planning for building wood fired pizza oven. Thanks
