Pizza!

I have now finished my oven and painted it, all looking good, fired up for the first pizza this afternoon, it wasn’t white hot but did a pizza in about 3 mins, I had the fire going for 2 1/2 hours, and did 5 pizzas on it, the first couple had a disaster with them sticking to the peel, I used more flour on the peel and was all good.

 I was really pleased with my home made tools, shovel, brush and mop, and it all went rather well, everyone loved the pizza, think next time i’ll keep the fire raging a bit more as it had died down a bit just before cooking, but the pizzas were lovely and had a nice distinctive taste from the wood fire and slow ferment dough.
I even did a bit of bread which was great, and i’ve popped some mushrooms and tomatoes with a bit of olive oil and basil for supper.

I’ve got to have a look at my doors to get a snugger fit, as lost a lot of heat out the door and chimney I think, I had only popped a brick on top of chimney and that didn’t seal very well, so a few learnings and improvements, but it feels great to cook on my wfo finally.

  2. This is so cool!! How did you design the oven? Did you use plans from somewhere? My boyfriend and I have recently been saying how great it would be to have a wood fired oven in our backyard, and you make it look like it might not actually be such an implausible suggestion!

    • Thank you so much 🙂 glad you like my oven, It’s my own design, no plans anywhere just in my head.
      You should build one, I have helped a guy build one in New Zealand and a couple in the UK.
      It’s easier than you would think.
      Cheers
