Default Re: Egg shaped dome good enough for Pizza?

Well, I guess I got the answer I kinda knew already ;-)

Thanks guys for taken the time to explain (prob. for the nth time) the bleeding obvious.

I will behave and follow the dimensions described in Pompeii Oven | Dimensions

I think I might play with the egg-shaped idea in the future for a wood burner that is purely decorative.

As I indicated before, I think the egg is an interesting fireplace substitute that is certainly more versatile than a Rumsford. And it could do some reasonable cooking - especially for appetizers and conventional fireplace food. Good luck with the Pompeii. I don't think you will regret it! It is a versatile and great design.
