Default Stainless Steel Pizza Oven Build

I own a fabrication shop in New Jersey and also have a love for pizza. We were a little slow a few months back and I began to think about making a wood fired oven out of stainless steel. It is now a finished build and the thing rocks. I have cooked everything from pizza to steak in it and I am very happy with it. Figured I would show it off here.

Nice work! What is your heat-up time and have you measured floor and dome temperatures? What is between the dome steel sheets? What did you use for the floor and below-floor material?

The entire oven is double walled with 2" HF10 Fire blanket between walls. The floor is stainless sheet under a steel angle frame with a 1/2" steel plate covering the entire inside base of the oven. The fire brick is placed on top of the steel. So basically from the bottom up it goes stainless sheet, angle frame, steel plate laying in angle frame, firebrick. Thing weigh a lot. (theft deterrent)

I usually start a fire well before I want to cook more out of fun then necessity. I have cooked a pie in as little as 45 minutes after lighting. I use a little natural wood charcoal along with the wood when I want to get going quick.

I have a digital thermometer that will read to 1200 and there are times after a good fire that the floor has read "HI". If I get a good enough fire going I have to let things cool down before starting to cook.

There is an oven from China on sale here that is exactly the same. Should work really well for pizza, so long as you maintain a fire while cooking, but I doubt there is enough thermal mass for retained heat cooking. Nice job

How do you keep the heat from going directly out of the chimney?

I made a plate with a handle that I use as a damper at the outlet of the chimney in the chimney cap, but to tell you the truth that has not been a problem. I deal with too much heat more often then too little heat.

Sorry for my ignorance but do you not loose a lot of heat thru the front? Or do you have some sort of door? How much would you charge to make this sort of thing as a fabricator. Thanks cliff

Cliff,

Different manufacturers use different techniques regarding door and chimney location. The Bella line does have a door, it helps keep the wind from impeding building a fire. The door would rest on the front landing, partially open allowing air to feed the fire.

There is more heat loss with a Metal oven compared with a Refractory oven. The max rating for Metal ovens runs about 750 degrees, where a refractory oven will exceed 900 degrees if sealed and insulated properly.

We do not provide custom fabrication for the Metal ovens. You can check out the product line at Bella Outdoor Living's website.

I have a door as you can see in one of the pictures above. With using the 1/2" steel plate under the brick too little heat is never a problem. This thing gets hotter than any refractory oven around. I really never thought about building them to sell but if you were interested in getting one email me. acfbob at comcast dot net or PM me.
