The cooking surface will be around 56 inches, it is a big oven.

I like the look of it. Why the slot in the chimney?

You will still lose masses of heat through the ovens contact with the concrete slab so you are wasting your time with the floor insulation.

It is unfortunate that you found us too late. Adding the insulation under the floor will definitely help. The good news is that firebrick isn't that great of a conductor of heat. Hopefully the loss from dome to slab will be minimal.
