I have wanted a wood fire pizza oven for a long time, so today I built one.
I found a video of a simple design on Youtube, so I thought I would try it.
I had all the supplies here at the house.
1. clay brick
2. angle iron from old bed frame
3. scrap wood to make a door
Here is a video to let you see the finished product.
First, I laid down 7 bricks wide and then 4 bricks deep on top of my existing brick top.
Second, for the side walls I layered one brick on it side on both sides, and then one layer of bricks on end to make the side walls.
Third, the back wall. I made a two layered wall with 2 bricks deep for extra strength.
Fourth, I made a door. I had some old lumber from a counter top and I cut a small piece of it off the end and it was perfect.
Next I started a fire. It took about 2 hours to get a fire hot enough to cook with. I would suggest getting a thermometer so you can test it before cooking.
Here is a look at cooking the pizza.
The finished product.
I am very pleased with the result and can’t wait to have some friends over for a, “make your own pizza” party.
