What a nice feeling to know I can sit back and enjoy the pizza of my labor. I would like to thank the people here who were kind enough to give advice when needed and for sharing all this wonderfull information

    Great job. Nice tile work. Lots of table space. When can we come over?

      Finished? Finished? What a triumph for you. Looks great. My oven has been up and running almost four years, and one of these days I'll finish the cosmetic work. Natch, in my copious free time.

        Oh my goodnesss -- I'm drooling all over my keyboard. Nice kitchen! Congratulations on completing.

        p.s. Regarding whether or not this is the correct forum to post this kind of message in... I see the word 'finish' in the forum title, so it must be the forum for posting messages about finishing a project

                Beautiful very nice work. I have just started my kitchen this month and have the 16 X 20 covered area completed, now for the concrete work and oven. Thanks for the photo, it helps me visulize my own ideas. Enjoy your kitchen. Here's a toast to you!

                  Thanks to all for the great replies. It's been fun building it but I don't think I'd do it again in this life time. I've gotten some really great pizza out of this oven so far and would like to contribute a web site for any one that might still be struggling with finding that perfect pizza dough. I've been playing with pizza dough for about 8 yrs and just got the hang of it the last year thanks to this site. Jeff Varasano's NY Pizza Recipe

                  Yes I will gladly post a full size picture

                          Now for some results! I wasn't able to get any pics of the pizza but I did get some of the bread the next morning. When the pizza came out of the oven, I turned around to get the camera and the pizza was already gone.

                            Hey Bruce,

                            Manteca is just up the road from Modesto. Your bread looks great. That a nice deep brown and good carmelization. Take that Boudin.
