The insulation worked great. We fired it for pizza and bread the other night. After 4 hours of pizza, the oven was 900F on the top of the dome, around 850F on the hearth, and 104F on the outside of the dome all the way around.

John, #26 with the photo of the pizza and flame was perfect! Showing how a pizza should be baking, and having the flame to keep heat while licking the roof is perfect. Excellant!

John,

Thanks for the great thread...inspiring.

Can you summarize the materials used, approximate cost and approximate hours involved?

Would you do anything different?

Thanks
Jim

Hi there,

I am in the UK and currently building a wood fired clay oven. I have pics of my progress so far and will post them on here if any one is interested. Just finished my brick archway today and am very proud

Some pics of my oven, still under construction. I hope to have sand form built and first layer of clay applied this weekend. I have used Kiko Denzers book as inspiration.

Very cool. Keep the photos coming.

How's the weather? Warm enough to get really dirty?
