Pull up the floor tile and re-level it with a dry fireclay/sand mix. Forget about some kind of magical self-leveling product you can apply to the surface...nothing like that will work.

It actually seems like I can remove the 4 bricks and put new ones in.

Up to you but yeah...may as well replace them. Either way, you will have to get things level after you take the floor up.

The bricks seem rather large, like 14x27. Where would I go about purchasing something like that? Maybe I should call the manufacturer.

Yeah, or you can use firebrick splits..1 1/4" thick.

Flip them over and re level

I thought about that but then they would have to go on opposite sides of the oven and where they meet the dome if they arent exactly the same, they wont fit. The oven is only 2 bricks wide approximately 27" per brick.

Then get yourself some standard firebrick to fill in the gaps at the edges and or cut down the one that needs cutting. At the edges no one will notice or care. But that leads to another question, can you even get one out and or turned over because of the size?
