Forum Issues Update
We are continuing to work diligently to resolve the issues currently being experienced with the PhotoPlog. Thank you for your patience!
Marvel (on country club in Mesa) for the fire clay, HD for fire bricks (red) or Marvel for yellow. Flue liner - marvel. HD/Lowes for the standard building stuff. Phoenix Brick for the refractory if you are going that route. Others can chime in as well. There are a few others that are here in the valley.
Well Hey, don't forget me. I'm in Glendale but these here electronic thingys will get my helpful comments to you like I was sending them from your spare bedroom.
Not every Home Depot carries fire brick in the valley area. Check Craigs List. Use several spellings and each time someone new will pop-up. Seems like there is no uniform spelling for fire brick, firebrick, bricks, etc. (or kiln brick) Whatever, you'll want a "fire brick" to weigh about 7.5 pounds plus or minus a few ounces.
I've got a bag of lime for give-away, some fire clay and silica sand too.
Definitely hit up Craigs List, I got my exterior bricks 4 for a dollar on CL, fire brick at HD for about $1.25a piece I think. I still have about 30 Fire bricks would be willing to let them go for 20$(its a start anyway). Otherwise probably just going to use them for a fire pit.
I too am in Gilbert (as are several others.) It is a good idea to see what does and does not work. If you want to see a still semi-finished oven - come on down Sat! Just PM me. There are many things I would have done differently (height, deck size, oven landing.....) However, the oven works beautifully, despite my stupidity. Be sure to make a plan, then double check it, then post it for all to help you debug and don't try to get too fancy without re-planning.
Just throwing this out there.....I have two very large bags of perlite. They are extra and I have no need for them. They are free to the first person who is willing to get them out of my garage. Just send me a personal message. I am in the SE corner of Gilbert.

Reason: Miss type
I'm glad to see that we have some people in the local area that loves pizza as much as I do. Has anyone kept a budget of how much it would cost to build the oven? I know it all depends on the type of material, but I'm just looking for average numbers. I'm setting a budget, and would like to have a understand of how much this is going to cost..
In addition how long would it take to build one as well?
