round oven owners, what would you do differently?
« on: November 30, 2006, 04:08:31 PM »
I am a long-time home pizza chef :chef: (17+ years) but I'm new to the high-heat Neapolitan style pizza method.  I'm now longing for a pizza oven and I'm trying to make plan to get one.

For those of you who own round, wood-fired pizza ovens what would you do differently if you could build another one?
- would it be larger or smaller?
- would the dome be higher or lower?
- would the door be bigger or smaller?
- would the masonry be thicker or thinner?
- would you build a brick oven or use a precast oven?
- would you use more or less insulation?
- would you build the hearth taller or shorter?

As you can see I'm full of questions  :).  Please share your wisdom.  :pizza:
