Yeah true, but I got to build it right too and that's my big worry - hell, I've never even laid a concrete slab before! One thing for certain is my pizza oven WILL have character - just hope it worksShe sure was nice but it had no character. A brick oven will be far more homely and if you build it yourself it will give you so much more satisfaction.
Just sayin ...,
Thanks @Pink Yes, you make a lot of good points there and now you've got me thinking about the size... perhaps you're right and a smaller oven might be the better option Less resources to build, less fuel, faster heating up etc...All I can say is good luck Mark. I have seen a couple diy jobs and they turned out fantastic and the pizzas were to die for...but I have heard they are a bit tricky to build. We are going to watch this one closely because I have always wanted one. Make sure it is good looking though as you want it to be a centre piece/focal point of your back yard. Also is bigger necessarily better or faster? I know, typical girl comments but practically speaking the bigger the area the longer it will take to heat up and the more fuel you will need? The smaller ovens generate a stack of heat and I think it is part of it's charm making smaller personalised pizzas and waiting for them. It only takes about 5 minutes, if that. Really can't wait to see how it all turns out.
