How to build a clay pizza oven

Build a clay pizza oven
Clay pizza oven from raw materials

In 2016 we built our clay pizza oven from raw materials. It took a lot of labour but it was well worth it and is still going strong 4 years later.

It consists of a base made from blocks, built using mortar and is topped off with a layer of fire bricks.

A mixture of clay and sharp sand is created using lots of family labour. This is used to form the dome, cast using a pile of sand as a mould.

We also used a brick arch and a chimney. Insulated flu-pipe goes upwards through the wooden shelter. The shelter is only basic but it offers plenty of protection against the rain wind and snow.

The pizza oven requires a minimum of maintenance and is certainly the focus of a garden party.
