Default dome oven size

i am building a dome brick oven and in reading, articles refer to 27, 36 and 42" ovens whether they be brick or clay. Is there a reason I shouldn't build for example a 32" oven as long as my height and opening ratios are correct?

I guess as long as the size fits your intended purposes, any size is fine.

What is an ideal size ?
For 2 people mainly and very occasionally 4 to 6 ?
I want to do 2 full size pizzas weekly
I would do 2 loaves of sour-dough weekly
And a shoulder of pork or lamb weekly.
Obviously with the minimal size for less wood use, but big enough to fit the pan with shoulder and veg or 12 inch pizza or 2 loaves through the door.(not all at once )

I am doing a 90 cm for a couple of reasons:

1. Space/ Area

2. Casa 90 seems to be a best seller in kit/modular form.

3. I hope to be able to fit a turkey but that is not a must.

4. Space, Space, Space.

5. I would go to 100-110 cm if I had the room.


BTW, for me cost was not a factor.

Hope this helps.

The potential of a 36" oven is significant. There is not much you can not fit through the door and if you have it up to temp then you will pump more pizza out of there than most will ever need, and quickly as well. Try 2 every 90 seconds or so x however long you want to cook.

It is more about how you use it.

Mine is 540mm (21") and a 5kg (10lb) turkey will just fit.
