Well, I'll be the experimental Pavlov's dog.
Let's see.
Hope that the weather will change from rainy to sunny.

I think dmun would jump in if he had worries. I don't see any real problem with your plan, though I think the cracks in between the floor bricks is something of a non-problem anyway. As long as they are level and a peel can slide across them without hanging up and throwing your beautiful pizza on the back wall of the oven, then you're golden.

My vote would be to leave the cracks to let them fill in with ash... My only conern about using mortar is I thought you wanted the floor to be able to expand and contract a little? Might be easier with ash between the cracks vs. mortar???

Not an expert by anymeans but I'm planning on leaving the gaps inside the oven dome. Note I did fill in the gaps on the inside of the vent area...
