For pizza, no. Fire in the oven cooking is done wide open. Bread baking is done with retained heat, after the fire is removed. For this you need a door in the inner opening, inside of the flue. It can be quite simple, a piece of refractory insulation board cut to fit into the hole, covered with sheet metal if you are getting fancy.

Sounds right to me.

You will want a door for roasting and bread baking. How sophisticated you make it is up to you. The Casa/Artigiano ovens have free standing metal doors with a wood handle, where the Premio ovens have an insulated and hinged door, with a thermometer and peep hole.
