Pizza Oven: A Work in Progress

I can’t take any credit for this project, I just provide moral support, Matt does all the real work.

When we bought our house, there was a fernery, aviary and tank, immediately behind the house. We knew we didn’t want to keep any of it there and planned to rip it all out and grass the area.

Of course, it didn’t work out that way…

When it came to pulling the concrete stand out, we discovered that the concrete went deep into the ground, and it would be best for us to leave it where it was. So then we were left wondering what on earth to do with this big circular slab of concrete sticking out of the ground.

It didn’t require a huge imagination to come up with the idea for a pizza oven.

and so, work began.

The most recent addition has been the concrete slab, that will form the base of the oven, and the roof for the wood storage below. The section to the right of the round pizza oven will make up more wood storage, a bench and Matt’s hoping to include a tandoor as well.

Apart from the concrete used to hold it all together, it’s made entirely from recycled materials.

Matt’s doing an amazing job. He constantly astounds me with what he seems to be able to create from nothing. I just can’t wait to see it finished, and┬áhave our first pizza night!
