Question The poll to divide a pizza oven community.

The poll to divide a pizza oven community.

To build on the hearth, or not to build on the hearth, this the question?

Oven was built on the hearth, it cracked?

Oven was built on the insulation, with the hearth cut inside, it cracked?

Thumbs up Re: The poll to divide a pizza community.

My Pompeii dome was built on the vermiculite cement with the hearth bricks cut inside to fit, the oven didn't/hasn't cracked but the render over the superwool insulation has small cracks through it.
Not the choice to tick Brickie!

I didnt use mortar, which I suspect expands at a different rate to firebrick.
I used a propriety made air set fire glue, its used in refractory work inside boilers and such so must endure lots of abuse.

My joints as Ive said before are less than .5 of a millimetre in thinness.
