BrickWood OvensThat base is made of inexpensive cinder block (CMU block) which is 8" x 8" x 16" and is available at every hardware store across this great country! Steven Corley Randel, Architect added this to How to Get a Pizza Oven for the PatioThis is a good example of a custom-built masonry pizza oven.
The Forno Bravo forum has 5,000 registered members, and is the largest online brick oven forum. Earlier in the year, I posted a link to an article about building your own wood-fired earth oven for $20. I based the oven on Kiko Denzer's book Build Your Own Earth Oven, although that book can be maddeningly imprecise in critical areas.
Prepare a 2cm-3cm thick layer of mortar on which to construct the oven floor, checking that it is perfectly flat.
Surround the oven with a layer of rock wool 5cm-10 cm thick, then cover it with about 10 cm of sand, or apply (rock wool-free) expanded concrete.
I'm a bread baker, and I've done 12 loaves in this — it's great for baking bread because the thermal mass of the oven holds temp so well. I built this oven by myself (not recommended; get friends or a cement mixer) in less than a week of actual work for less than $200. My toddler loves pizza as well, but she's into what my wife calls "cafeteria pizza," essentially a pizza focaccia that I make in the oven.
I roped my dad into helping build the thing at some key points, and he still complains about my 18th century building methods. I hope people take inspiration from this — there's still time left in summer to build one!
My wife challenged me to build it for $200 or less, so the only things I paid for were about 30 firebricks for the oven floor, concrete sand, and a bag of perlite. While I'd still like a masonry oven at some point, this simple, cheap oven pumps out great pizza at a low cost.
