Frank’s construction manual for a wood-burning pizza oven - Wood burning loam bread oven - Build oven dome

The oven body of loam


Now all preparations are settled and building of the pizza oven can start. In an old tub or a large mortar tub the loam is made supple. In addition I mixed and with the feet rammed the loam with water. With or without boots - is left to everyone. Now I have the loam in one layer on the form laid on, knocked and rubbed. Don’t forgett installation of the fire-place pipe. You can leave also a recess open and insert the pipe later. Now the loam should dry first. It takes about 2 until 3 weeks depending on weather. A rain protection roof is compellingly necessary. (but it must be able to blow the wind through) Into the fire-place pipe (somewhat more stable execution) I let build turning flap with a fitter still another. With that I can close the fire-place during baking bread.


After drying the first layer, the second layer loam can laid on now. I started to design the oven opening. For that clinker were used. They were set like a dome on the built wood polystyrene form by means of loam mixture and smeared well. Afterwards over the entire dome again was laid on layer, knocked and rubbed. With the second layer the straw to chaff was added to the loam. Now the loam had to dry again approx. 3 weeks. In this time you can start to build the roofing.
