Fast forward to the past few years and I'm making my own dough and have pizza at least once a week. I can crank out a dough recipe that yields 4x 12" thin crusts in about 15 mins. Not bad... So after using my BBQ to make pizzas in summer I started to research how to make outdoor ovens. My first idea was to use a steel barrel and line it with fire bricks and use PL Premium adhesive to cling it all... not good enough so I said screw it, let's go for broke.
A few months ago I decided it's go time. Time to start sourcing materials. I went to a used brick place and put 200 4.5"x4.25"x9" fire bricks in the box of my 2009 Toyota Tacoma (bad idea). I also put some raw chunks of Tyndall Stone (limestone) to use for my arch way. Here are some pics of that venture.
These slabs of wood are from my dad's yard. They are Manitoba Maple. The plan for these bad boys is to plane them and laminate them for my door. I'll likely steel line it as well, but we'll cross that bridge when we get to it.
