- In addition to the oven I would need somewhere to store wood - so I thought I'd incorporate a bunker into the design. So the main build comprised of two phases:
Phase 1 - Build the wood bunker
Phase 2 - Build the Clay Oven on top of the bunker
Phase 3 - Optional extras such as insulation (a must have really), a chimney. brick arch and rendered weather-proof shell. Not got round to writing these yet, but will do soon.
- That I wanted to cook multiple, decent-sized pizzas - say about 10-12". So I opted for a 27" diameter oven floor rather than the standard 22.5" outlined in the book.
- That I didn't want it to fall down so I would (i) plan it out on paper, and (ii) probably over-engineer it, just to be safe
- I only wanted to spend about £250-300 total
