There's a truck near here, 1960s Chevy dumper, $1200.... throw another $10k at it, and you'll have yourself a nicely restored pizza wagon... I think I might have to do that too... =)

You can definitely put a brick oven on a trailer or the bed of a truck. Very cool idea. There are quite a few mobile FB ovens at this point, doing farmers' markets, festivals, parties and events, and more are being built all the time.

The time has come of update the original posting. I just looked, and Why Italian Wood-Fired Ovens are Round hasn't been touched since March 2005. Of course not much has changed in the world of wood-fired ovens. :-)

I have created a couple of graphics, which I think visually help describe the differences between round/dome and rectangular/barrel vault ovens. I think by attaching these graphics to the original sticky posting, it will help first time readers. To see the changes, take a look at the first posting, or as Dmun says, my essay. :-)

As always, comments are very much appreciated.

A million WFO's in Italy? Wow.
The CIA says that there are about 50 million adults in Italy. Figure two to a household, that means that about 10 percent of Italian homes have a WFO.
