Gonzo, I used insulating brick under a fire brick floor in a stacked, no mortar, moveable pizza oven for 2 years until I built a Pompeii oven. I had attended a workshop by David S Cargo, who has posted on this forum. He developed plans for stacked, square gravity supported pizza ovens using insulating brick under hearth . We fired up over 900, however it cooled quickly without insulation. I would leave the bricks intact.

Do you have a photo of that? I already used refractory concrete to stick the dome together. Not sure how big to do the chimney now

Gotta admire someone who tries to defy the laws of gravity.

I thought that the cement will act as a wedge between the gaps and hold everything together! theoretically it seemed possible.

What about the sideways thrusts?
Everything on this planet just wants to lay flat, its the way it is, build a domed oven.
