Backyard wood fired pizza oven DIY – Day 5 – Morning

This morning we lit a small fire on the new slab to allow it to heat slowly as the inside floor slab has only had about 12hours to cure. We should probably have left it for a week or so but the oven is scheduled for use later tonight.

The fire burnt down.

During the inital fire lighting we put a thermometer on the top of the chimney and it reached 200 degrees celcius before we decided to take the thermometer as the temperature reading was still climbing.

 

 

 

In order to take full advantage of the ovens potential it was used to cook breakfast.
