Nothing is better than being able to cook delicious food in your own backyard, and now with Claypave’s wood fired oven kit, you can expand your culinary horizons by cooking up your own pizza creations. It’s a must-have for anyone who loves outdoor cooking, and an easy excuse to make the most out of your outdoor entertaining space during winter.
The Basics of Building a Pizza Oven
If you aren’t handy at home, then you may be intimidated by the idea of building your own pizza oven. The good news is that it doesn’t require a contractor or any special skills. As long as you plan properly and take your time, you can complete this easy and inexpensive DIY project.
Build the Foundation
The first step involves building a brick foundation. This must be large enough for the entire oven – the Claypave pizza oven kit requires a base of 1200 x 1500mm.
Support the Oven
Next, you’ll need to create a block stand. This will serve as the core support structure for the oven.
Insulate the Hearth
To get the even heat needed for perfect pizzas, you must insulate the hearth. This is done by pouring a concrete slab over the support stand.
Create a Baking Surface
The last step is to construct the baking surface and top with brick and mortar.
