I just copied your idea with the wooden structure and im wondering if it was hard to get the wood out of the inside after it was finished drying, and how did you do it. burn it out? because i dont know about yours but i used wood screws to keep it together and the wont be ably to get to them after its dry.

hello!
welp, it's been four years and it's time for a facelift.
She's been a good oven, been to the beach, the park, a couple of parties and cooked hundreds of pies. One significant crack on the inside of the dome but it doesn't affect it, it still retains heat just as well as when it was brand new.

The stucco has cracked fairly well and the tires have gone flat over the winter.
I am looking for some ideas on how to freshen it up.
I'm leaning towards copper cladding it, also am going to add an extra axle to bump up the load rating, maybe make the firewood storage area bigger.

Any Ideas?

An acrylic flexible product will fill those cracks in the outer shell. Don't worry too much about them the outer shell is only to hold everything together and to keep the weather out. A big part of your outer shell cracking problem is caused by the direct joining of the inner and outer shells. This is evidenced by the cracks in the outer shell where it joins at the corners of your arch, one is hot and expanding while the other is much cooler. You will probably have to live with the cracks in that position.

or maybe a substantial Esky (cooler) built into it somewhere?

I think a good goal would be to make it self contained - i.e. everything you need to use it can be carried on the trailer, wood, tools, maybe a fold up trestle table & chairs....A storage box for a market shade, cutlery, plates
(who uses plates?)

A pizza party on wheels if you will...

I do like the pizza party on wheels idea Mitch.
I have the little prep table on the back that folds down and covers the firewood storage area, I have a granite top for it that I lay on top of the plywood. but I do need more storage area so I'm pretty sure I'm going to lengthen the back part and make it accessible from both sides and the back.

Looking around at other pizza trailers for ideas.
