Wood Burning Brick Pizza Oven : Construction and Cooking

This outdoor wood burning pizza oven is wood buning brick pizza ovenlocated in the Dallas TX area. 

The brick oven is a variation of Rado Hand's Swishy oven with the firebox from the Masterly Tail Oven design  

Information on this wood burning brick pizza oven web site is arranged in three major categories:

1) Construction: Base (Foundation, Wood Storage, Hearth), Oven Chamber Base, Oven Chamber Top, Cladding, Chimney, Insulation, Finishing, Sources for building materials

2) Cooking: Cooking-Pizza, Cooking - Roasting, Recipes

3) Support: Hints, Favorite Links Fires - Building (low smoke fires), Oven Stories (other peoples ovens) Oven Stories has a new video covering the construction and use of an outdoor kitchen incorporating a wood burning brick oven. 

Navigation for all of these pages is at the top of every page.  Also, at the bottom of each page I have a link to the "next logical" (my guess) page of interest.

Local (Dallas, TX) sources were found for all construction materials including firebrick, decorative bricks, glass blocks, vermiculite insulation, and all cooking and food serving supplies.

Just when you think you have tried all possible combinations of pizza, we found a new one.   Polish inspired, the "Josephine", made with kielbasa , mushrooms, and..   Give it a try







And to show you can cook in every weather, here is a new picture of firing the oven and cooking 18 pizza's on Christmas Eve.  Yes it does snow in Dallas!





Time lapse pizza oven cooking picture sequence.  The woodtime lapse pizza cooking wood burning brick oven fired brick oven was not at its hottest at this point. The cooking time for this pizza was approximately 3 minutes.  Cooking times will be as fast a 90 seconds to as long as about 4 minutes, depending on how low you let the fire get and how cool the floor bricks get.  You can reheat the floor by sliding hot coals into the center about every 15 -30 minutes.

If you are thinking of building an outdoor kitchen and incorporating a wood burning oven, I hope you will find this web site and the links I have provided useful. 

Words to the wise (disclaimer :):  Before building, consult your local city - town zoning and other controlling groups (Homeowners Associations, etc) for all applicable restrictions and construction requirements.  There would be nothing worse than spending months building your outdoor kitchen and wood burning brick oven and then being forced to take it down or modify it for zoning or safety reasons.  No matter what you see in plans on this web site or any other web site, make sure the design you choose is reviewed and approved by your appropriate local authorities before building.

Also use common sense in what you can and should attempt to do yourself.   Many people who build ovens are handy and do much or all of their work themselves.   However this approach is not for everyone.  You can experience a creative pride in many aspects of a project while using a qualified person to build your outdoor cooking center for you No warranties in design or advise are expressed or implied in any of the techniques or materials shown on this site. 

Happy cooking!
