Default Re: Dome design/shape

The optimum shape for a pizza oven is an ellipse. Use an 85-90% height to radius ratio.

This is not really that "shallow", but is sufficient to spread the single point focus of a hemisphere out to a 8-10 inch ring. This will give a more even and higher heat to the top of the pizza.
