Al,

Thanks for your kind remark.

It's not so much that I don't have the room, but this was the only place it made sense. Anywhere else and it would have felt like it didn't belong. It certainly isn't the absolute, ultimate oven, but it is better than nothing at all.

Perhaps after a few years, we will re-model the yard and plan a larger oven.

Your build looks amazing!

Having an oven like you say is better than not having one, once youve been there, there is no turning back.

FINALLY!!! I have gotten my oven 99% finished. I got super busy and couldn't work on it, but I was able to find a few night here and there to get it finished. I still want to add a light, but that is about it.

My stucco work is not the best, there are a million little cracks but it could be worse.

My wife and I made a pact not to use it until it was totally finished. We are planning on having some pizza tonight.

How come you tucked it away in a corner like that?

Yes, it is a bit unfortunate. That was the only place in our yard that made sense. I live in the San Fernando Valley on about 7000 sq ft of land, so space is a huge issue. It isn't the perfect or ideal design but it 100% better than the pizza oven I had before... which was none.

Hi cholme,

Cool build you have there! I definitely agree with you, better to have one in a tight spot than none at all!

And I like how you integrated your oven's name into the stucco, nice touch!

Why "beware the dog"?

"Beware the dog", roasting in the oven? My guess.

I know it is a stretch. Here it is. Cave Canem is a mosaic that is at the entrance to one of the homes in Pompeii. My wife and I loved visiting Pompeii and when I landed on the Pompeii Oven style as the oven I would build, my wife suggested the name. I said it was a stretch, but there you go.
