building an outdoor pizza oven....
« on: August 20, 2012, 12:27:30 PM »
Hey all,

used to hang out here all the time but have been gone awhile now...

I know I am duplicating past conversations but have any of you found good plans for an outdoor pizza oven that is reasonably priced?

thanks all!

Forno Bravo has the free plans for the Pompeii (oven).  Mine is a low dome instead of hemispherical: http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,20117.0.html

The materials were about $650, I bought a Tom a nice new tile saw and $500 worth of his favorite beer.

Hopefully there will be a couple left when we go get that big girl.

I've been wondering about that for a long time. I suppose you need at least a couple expensive tools, too, right?

You can rent a saw which is the only expensive tool.

It's been mighty hot in Austin,  I don't really expect for there to be many left.

There is none left, but there is more where it came from.  Materials at retail would be closer to thousand bucks and could be much more than that depending upon where you are.
