best pizza wfo kit in aus?
well im in teh stages of building my oud door area (awaiting council approval for 6x6 entertainment area) and i wondering what kit i should go for.

Robertos like simple and nice but doe snot answer phone or emails.

Sydney fire bricks have been very helpfull and price seem decent.

what would you guys do? i want to be able to cook 2 family sized pizzas at a time with our having to be a tetris champ to get them in there.

I would lay off the Fosters ;) Seriously, isn't FB selling kits in your country? If you can afford one that's the fastest / easiest way to pizza.

Build your own as it will add to this great resource

Bunnings ones.......I've cooked in one of these....first and last time for a whole range of reasons.

I too looked at kits especially the ones from Bunnings. Amalfie ovens i believe they were. Glad i didnt go down that path as i would have been very disappointed. Glad i have gone down the BYO path.

I built one of these: Home -*DIY Woodfired Ovens*- DIY Woodfired Ovens

Did not have the skills or time to build one from scratch. If I was to do it again I would use the same kit, just do more insulation on the dome. I built the base out of Hebel which gives me good base insulation but I would probably use thicker floor tiles..... The squat dome works well and room for two pizzas easy.... The kit is good because the dome is very well made and is a great design but allows you to play with finishes etc... i found fb too expensive in oz....Check out my last post for some pics....

Good luck....

I bought the DIY Bunnings one for $999 (It's $1600 if you want the same oven pre built...). they come from Mediterranean Woodfired Ovens and they review pretty well if you buy the ones directly from them (cost $250 more)and request the ones made in Australia. The ones from Bunnings are made in Asia and are fairly new so not much out in terms of reviews on the refractory material...

I only finished mine on the weekend but I can let you know how it goes over the next few months, it was pretty simple to do.

I would have loved to buy an FB one or build my own but given the price and time it just wasn't going to happen. I especially would have loved to support FB by buying their oven as I love this place. But, I tell everybody about them and refer people to them all the time so I kinda feel I'm doing my bit...

The next one however...

All the best,
