Oven concept sketch
This oven design is loosely based on a restaurant project that Alex and I did in Toronto's famous Kensington Market.
However, the door on this oven has been turned 90 degrees from the Toronto oven, resulting in an interesting design that is
very easy to build.
Joe Prinzivalli helps Alex try to get the oven under control as the weather gets really bad with high winds and rain.
The vault would not support itself due to wet bricks, so we wedged the form back into place so that buttressing could be built.
Completed vault. This shape works perfectly for #1 arch taper brick, which would allow thin joints.
Let the pizza party begin !
Feeling no pain.
Oven hearth was over 1000F at the start, and the vault was 1300.
One minute for the first pizzas, with olive oil, garlic and salt topping.
As the oven cooled, other toppings could survive the intense top heat.
fire + pizza + beer = fun
