This wood burning pizza oven was constructed in Dallas, TX. The sources for
fire bricks, vermiculite, restaurant supplies including pizza cooking and
service items (pizza peal / pizza paddle, serving trays, ..) here are
available locally as well as remote delivery. Check out the respective web
sites for these companies for details.

) , Coppell, TX. Source of packing material which includes Vermiculite
which they sell as absorbent material for packing liquids. Grade 4 is a
large, course size which I has worked out wonderfully for the oven
insulation. They have an Internet site and seem to ship to
almost anywhere. Two bag minimum on order. I ordered two bags
and wish I had ordered three!
- Cement, Sand, Lime, Re-bar, re-enforcing mesh: Home Supply stores.
The big chains are almost everywhere and supply almost everything you need.
- Glass blocks (used in Chimney): also found at local home supply stores.
I used these glass blocks for the effect of the flames in the glass, and
to match the glass blocks I had previously used in remodeling the kitchen
in the house.
- Pizza Peel / Paddle; brash brush for cleaning oven floor; serving pans;
cooking screens: www.acemart.com
is a major Restaurant Supply company that has a local outlet in North Dallas
(on Forest Lane, just East of Josey Lane) and they are wonderful.
Friendly to home (non wholesale) users. More toys and cooking and
serving goodies than you can imagine. Check out their supplies locally
or on their web site.
- Fire Clay:
Click on Retail, then Raw Materials. Dry Clays. I purchased 2,
50 lb bags of Hawthorne Bond after discussing my building application with
the sales person. I still have part of the 1st bag left for my small
oven so 1 bag may be enough for your outdoor kitchen brick oven project if
it is a similar size to mine.
