Earthen Pizza Oven

Pizza is my boyfriend

I built a pizza oven in my backyard. The design for this oven is based on Kiko Denzer’s excellent book and this excellent blog. I was going to make it all computer-y and stuff and fill it with thermocouples and Arduino junk, but then I decided that maybe it’s okay to just build a thing out of mud every once in awhile…



Cob (fireclay, coarse sand, straw, water), firebrick, brick, urbanite, gravel, empty glass bottles, perlite
