Here are a couple more pictures of our oven in progress. Boy it sure is hard to do it in the cistern, not too much room to move around and you can't stand up straight either. We have finished the dome and the arched opening finally. next step is to put on the vent and pipe. Hopefully this weekend we can pour in the perilite and close up the cistern around the oven. Post more pics soon!!

Well hee we are, almost done our oven. All that is left is the paint the facade and we will be ready to have our first pizza this weekend. Very excited!!!! We are so happy that we kept the old cement water cistern that was in the courtyard of our house when we bought it. It made a wonderful facade for our woodfire oven even thought it was a lot harder to build it from the inside out. I will post the pictures of it all finished soon.

Soon we will be opening up Rescoldo Meditteranean Bistro and cooking up a storm of delicious food in our wood fire oven. If anyone is even visiting Merida Mexico, please stop by for a pizza!!!!

Well we are all done building our woodfire oven and are now open for buisness. Rescoldos Mediterranean Bistro has been open for 3 weeks now and we have been really busy!!!! Anyone living or visiting Merida Mexico, we would love for you come and try one of our delicious pizzas or calzones. I have posted some more photos of our oven and our pizzas, everything turned out great!!!! Keeping the old cement water sistern and turning it into our woodfire oven was the best idea we had and everyone loves the way it turned out, it's the center of attraction at our restaurant!!!!

My husband and I are building a home in Tulum Mexico and have planned a pizza oven in the backyard. We were excited to see your oven! We think it is going to look great when finished. Would love to see more pictures. Where did you purchase the oven? Did you purchase it there in Merida or in the states and have it shipped? Hope to here back from you soon. Thanks
