In MY humble opinion,

Bigger is better. You can always fill the gap between the wall and dome with vermiculite. Don't worry about cutting blocks. If you've got room for a slab that big, it will give you more room to play with.

The only thing I would add is that your foundation slab should be about 4" bigger on each side than the block base for your oven. If you've got that, then a bigger base should be no problem.
