My neighbor and I built a wood fired Pizza oven with our own plan. It took about a year of weekends to get the job done. It was hard work but that oven cooks Pizza Great! The day after pizza day comes roasting day, seeing as the oven is still 350 degrees the next day. I will build doors for the wood storage area but here are some pictures of the oven door and oven…..If anyone would like some information on building an oven or the doors just drop me a line. can’t you just smell that pizza!

childress I am hopping that warping won’t be problem I used 2 inch thick hard rock maple a oven gasket and a piece of sheet metal to reduce the heat problem.This is not a draft door so it will only be used to hold the heat in so some baking or roasting can take place the next day.Thanks for your kind words Scott

Great oven mate and a beautiful door to match. I hope it won’t be scorched like mine.
I ended up dipping my wooden door in sand and casting cement door.
Now I have an “hot” door for when the oven is operated and “cold” door for the daily show off ;-)

Great pizza oven and door. I was wondering if the sheet metal you used is raised or if it is just mounted directly to the wood.

Have your say...
