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.
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.
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.
