Right. So you are looking for an outdoor pizza oven? What design suits my space? Do I build my pizza oven myself? What shall I make my pizza oven out of? And, after all that hard work, is it going to work?
If you were like I was. You have looked at all the Youtube videos and searched the net. Looked at buying the refractory materials and making the oven yourself. Well don’t! I can assure you from experience that things go wrong. And you don’t want that when you build something this big!
Please feel free to call or text me on my mobile at any time. I don’t believe you can purchase something this important at the click of a button. What I will do is offer advice so you can confidently build, or have built, your outdoor wood burning oven.
The new 5 piece 750mm Milan pizza dome has a good finish. Due to the use of perlite there may be some small pock marks and the edges may be chipped. This is far outweighed by the extra insulation properties and lightness of the aggregate, which enables the oven to be lifted.
Now cast in steel male and female moulds for greater accuracy.
The use of lightweight perlite makes the oven relatively easy to lift by 2-4 persons. The dry weight of the materials used is under 200 kg in total for the floor and dome.
They can be fitted through the narrowest gate with the dome at less than 500mm high externally and 850mm externally.
Our 750mm and 900mm ovens come in 5 pieces for even easier handling
However, still use safe lifting practices or seek expert advice on lifting.
Our ovens come with 9" x 4" refractory bricks for the oven floor. These add an extra source of heat retention as well as being easy to replace if one does happen to break. Once used they go a lovely bluey black in colour, giving that authentic look and storing heat to give you that perfect crusty pizza base. Simply place in on normal sand/cement mortar and point up around the edges with the refractory mortar that is provided.
Let your creativity run wild and use different kinds of bases for your pizza oven. Wander around reclamation yards to find original materials for your wood burning oven construction. This could be out of blocks, sleepers then covered in bricks or render. Spend your time on the aesthetics of your oven with the knowledge that when you come to light it, it works and will last. I can provide you with drawings and advice on your pizza oven build.
The complete oven kit delivered on one or two pallets. We offer a number of designs what I think work well in different situations, whether it be a corner, square, circle or a long run. Your kit will come with everything you need apart from the basics like blocks, sand and cement etc. These are more economical for you to source yourself locally. We will give you approximate quantities to order.
The outdoor oven is built out of reclaimed or new bricks that are supplied with nearly everyone pre-cut off site. Cutting up to 400 bricks in your back garden is awfully dusty,noisy and can upset the neighbours. The oven looks and performs fantastic when built and give you a true sense of pride when you tell everyone you built it yourself.
Here is an outdoor kitchen display at Reclaimed World, Tarporley, Cheshire. Jeff has broken the boundaries in outdoor kitchen design. His display area is fantastic and a credit to his foresight. Pay him, his staff and his yard a visit, you won't be disappointed.
