Things that have changed since building a pizza oven....
 
Now if I were Dave I'd do you a top ten, thereby shamelessly padding my number of posts... ;)

But I'm not, so I'll just do a list.

Bulding a pizza oven has been a life-altering experience. These are some of the things it has changed in my life:



- I don't like going to pizza restaurants anymore.

- I bake all my own bread.

- I grow my own yeast. :cool:

- I spend a lot more time on the internet.

- I put my head inside all the ovens I come accross.

- When I cook in my regular oven, I invariably forget to turn it off again...:rolleyes:

- I'm putting on weight. :eek:

- I'm learning new words on a daily basis. Really usefull ones too, like bulut, dinkum and autolyse.



So, what has your oven changed in your life?

-my kids ask,"Dad are you lighting the oven today?" and I reply, yes.....after you do your chores.........and they say O.K.
the ease of them saying O.K.-that's my change

Enjoy,
Bob C

Ditto for these ( and I haven't even started my build :eek: )

- I don't like going to pizza restaurants anymore.

- I bake all my own bread.

- I put my head inside all the ovens I come accross.

- I'm putting on weight.

- I'm learning new words on a daily basis. Really usefull ones too, like bulut, dinkum and autolyse.


Also
I bore everyone within earshot with interesting and tecnical facts about pizza ovens and pizza.

My side yard is full of construction materials :rolleyes:

I may be banned from all "wood-fired" or "brick-oven" pizza joints due to my persistent questions and demands to peek into their ovens. :eek:

I dream of pizza and pizza ovens :D

Geeze Frances,
I hope its not a yeast infection! :eek: (sorry, I couldn't resist)

I'm thinking about this one. I'll probably post many times before I'm done. Mostly, the one that comes to mind is that I'm always searching for more firewood.

Also, I spend a lot more time on this forum (I know, too much, huh?) :)

More later, I'm sure!

You should of done a top ten Frances!
After 1000 no padding required!

I gaze out my car windows looking for firewood...( Ditto George)


And I now know how much pizza hut sucks...



Oh yeah.... I also spend hours looking for the perfect WFO recipe to impress my online friends.!

Hmmmm, like George, there are a lot of thoughts here...mostly good too!:)

I picked up an affliction called "FBO" that alternates with my "WFO separation anxiety disorder."....

I take lots of digital pictures before the friends get to eat....

I look at how to convert recipe's to WFO versions

I learned how to crop post pictures more easily

I feel like I have international internet friends

I started an FB travelog on the Costa Blanca

I fantasize about the big green truck

I see chimneys everywhere I go

I want to have a portable oven

I preach more paella gospel

I inhale more smoke

I pick up some OZ

I light more fires

eat well

and I still wonder what I'm going to be when I grow up.....

:D

Getting my kids to do their chores for pizza... now why didn't I think of that? Brilliant!

I haven't completed my WFO yet, but I am always noticing brickwork now. I notice it in TV shows, commercials etc.. When ever my wife drives, I am always telling her, "Wait, go back, check out that arch. Or, "Man I wish they would knock that building down so I can have some of those rustic looking bricks for my oven."

Ain't that the truth.....happens with all sorts of things.

Many moons ago, I picked up a number of books by Ken Kern....stuff like Owner Built Housing, Stone Masonry, Fireplaces and Chimenys, etc......but ever since I've been a student and critic of stonework....arches and domes are particularly cool.

Do you lot also find yourself checking building sites and such to see if they're throwing out anything interesting?
