A nice bit of pizza, plain and simple

I fired up the oven again this afternoon to drive away the moisture built up over the winter and get it ready for a full summer of pizza and wood fired cooking, I also had a play with a couple of pizza recipe ideas, more of which will follow in a later post. But here’s a lovely simple cheese and tomato thick crust pizza, it seemed a shame not to use the oven with this glorious weather.

The oven seems to be working pretty well I’d say………

    • thank you, glad the picture did it’s job, it really was straightforward building the oven, and I did it with minimal building skills with a few hard days of work, and I was ready to go, you should have a go.

    • thank you, it’s not quite the first pizza, but it was lovely seeing the kiddies munching their way through home made pizza, my little ones can’t get enough of it.

  8. Thank you, I’m really proud of my oven, especially that it was made out of mostly recycled material. It’s easier than you would think to build one.
    Cheers
