Anybody Can Create A Pizza Oven With The Right Kit It might seem like an overwhelming task to build a pizza oven for some, but that might be because they don't understand just how easy it'll be. There's no need to hire a professional to come in and do the job when you are perfectly capable of doing it yourself, with a little help, of course. Understanding how to build a pizza oven can be a whole lot easier than you ever thought possible if you have a pizza oven kit to help you with the project. The Foundation Your oven will have to be raised up on an insulated base for it to work correctly. Your base will contain a slab of concrete that the whole oven will sit on. You may have to build your base slab to the frost line, for those that live in cooler areas, based on the area's requirements, so make sure you check the regulations before you begin. The remainder of the base will include three walls that are going to work as the support beams for your oven, together with the hearth slab. The height of the completed base is generally not very important with regards to function, but structural safety is always a concern, so make sure you follow all directions and stay within the safety levels the kit manufacturer suggests. The Pizza Oven The kit will truly come in handy when it comes to the actual oven. It usually takes a master craftsman to be able to build the beautiful domes and barrels of a wood fired pizza oven, but a handy kit will simplify this process so practically anyone can make a beautiful oven. With your base and hearth slab in position, you can start laying the brick that will form the upper base and walls of your oven. When you begin laying the brick for the outside of the oven's cooking surface, you may find it easier to begin from the center of the hearth slab and work from the center towards the outside. This can create an even, pleasing view for the most commonly viewed areas of the oven. Throughout the entire project a level will be your best friend. Making sure that all the bricks are level is important to the structural stability of the oven. The oven may not function as well as it should and may even cause hazards to you and your family if you cut corners and don't level it out. Once you have laid the oven’s cooking surface, you can begin to build the oven’s walls. You'll either have to pour concrete into the kit's mold, or the form may already be given to you, based on the type of kit you decide to purchase. It is extremely important to use the proper type of brick, while working with the manufacturer's instructions. When firebrick is necessary, it needs to be kept wet at all times. Lay the brick along the lines and forms the mold indicates until you have covered the whole outer surface. The next step is when you will need to use the insulating layer of ceramic fiber blanket, and then on top of that a layer of metal lathe. With some of the lathe showing through, you'll then place a layer of stucco on top of this layer. Once dry, you will need a second coat. Then you're BrickWood Ovens
