Wood Burning Pizza Oven - Base

Preparing the ground and creating the base concrete slab for the wood burning pizza oven was a lot of work. After mixing the oven slab I wish I had bought an electric concrete mixer to use for the rest of the project.  Future builders take my advise and buy a concrete mixer.  You can sell it when you are done.  

Follow the links at the bottom of each page to see each stage of the construction project, or go to the Cooking, Fires, Hints, Favorite Lines, and Recipe sources links (above) on how to enjoy using your wood burning oven.   Enjoy!

Update: One of the changes in this design that should be investigated is replacing the vermilulite insulation core with a material called Foamglass.   Do a web search for Foamglass and to see if it could make sense in a revised design.
