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.
For the floor of the oven built at Machine Project, we first used a single layer of concrete pavers to create some insulation. This pizza oven is just about as simple to build as stacking blocks, but creates a highly effective wood fired oven with an arched roof that can reach the 800-900 degree temperatures needed to make mindblowing pizza. This is a great, low-cost project for someone who wants to test out the ins-and-outs of brick oven cooking. Yeah, firebrick is definitely a lot pricier than the generic type - but keep your eyes open on Craigslist and other places, I've heard stories of used refractory (fire) brick being given away. This is kinda like a wood burning oven we made at Slab City, but ours was waaaay more unrefined. I've always wanted to make an outdoor oven for bread making using clay and straw mixed but it is a slow process compared with this.


Depending on what you use as a base for the oven to sit on, you should be just fine in grass or sand.
This Instructable explains how to build a brick pizza oven that cost about $700 in materials and can be assembled in a few hours. I attended a fantastic pizza making event at Machine Project (instructor: Michael O’Malley) that included the construction and firing of a DIY temporary brick pizza oven – the ultimate in pizza cooking. Note: While not exactly cheap at $700, a conventional brick oven can take weeks to build by professional masons and cost thousands. 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. It makes excellent pizzas, and with a live fire can make easily more than a dozen 12-inch pies, bake tons of bread, and even roast a chicken.


Eventually the heat should cause them to crack and degrade, but I have a feeling you could get at least a few firings out of it. For more typical family-sized backyard baking, you might want to try making a barrel oven that costs much less.
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.
