Thank you! Do you happen to know what the dimensions of the patio are. We'd like to build something similar. We are interested in using our oven for pizza and bread. How well does this oven work for bread backing?

The patio appears to be about 20' wide but we only supplied the oven and the plans for building it. Regarding your interests, I should tell you these ovens were called bread ovens in Italy long before they were labeled pizza ovens so you would be successful with any of our models.

For Italian style pizza, an oven needs to be low vaulted (17" or less) and have a good firebrick floor. Our floors are the only firebrick floor that is made by the mfg especially for pizza ovens and have the perfect porosity for wonderful crusts. The domes are modular (4 piece with expansion joints) so they behave better than bricks through repeated temperature cycles.

For bread, thermal mass is important - that is because you heat the oven first and then let the fire go out, sweep the coals and then load the oven. This is where the build up is important as many people will tell you to build an oven on an insulation board - insulation does not hold heat like proper thermal mass. We have plans for this when it's time.

One thing to think about is how much bread you wish to bake at a time. We also have commercial grade ovens for the home which are twice the weight. This means they take a little longer to heat and use a little more wood on start up but they hold the heat longer too. This is crucial for multiple bakes where you start with a fast baking loaf like ciabatta at 550F, then follow up with a longer baking sourdough boule at 475F and finish with some sweet breads that require a lower temperature.

Nice design with pizza oven and fire pit combination. Pretty integrated counters and seating walls. Raised backsplash helps shield counters from the wind. Like the clay spark arrestor.

I love this design! The popular wood-fired pizza oven is a great entertainers must and the stone firepit is the perfect centerpiece.
