Remember: that's an indoor oven. Common red brick is porous, and absorbs a lot of moisture. I like the look too, but I think it needs to be under a canopy or pergola of some kind.

"why would anything laying on the outside of the dome draw heat? "

Heat will travel to the denser material and particularly if it is touching where the heat can travel easily via conduction. My first oven had a nifty rock with PEACE written on it,set into the outside stucco. The rock got way hotter than the stucco that surrounded it because it was denser. We used to use it as a temp gauge. If you couldn't hold your hand on it then the oven was ready for pizza.

Your Stucco coat looks too thin.

the outer color coat is separating from the first coat. I believe i followed the recommended coat thickness. i just think this is the side of the dome that doesn't get any sun. first coat never dried completely when i applied the color coat, i assume. the rest of dome that gets constant sunshine is fine.

What materials are you using for both base coat and finish coat?

Base should have cured for several weeks prior to installing finish coat. The base needs to be 100% dry/cured before finish gets applied. A bonding/priming agent between base and finish coat would have helped but that's all hind sight. Also while an elastomeric finish coat is curing it should not be exposed to rain/moisture or freezing temps, preferably for 2 weeks. I would wait for a couple days of warm (50 degree plus) dry weather days and patch it. Use a paint brush to feather the patch into the existing finish and you'll barely notice it.
