    There is a small pizza oven on Youtube where they use angle iron from a bed frame and firebricks. It looks like it makes a respectable pizzas.

    Is there a project in your future DB?

    Yes. I am planning on playing with brick rocket stoves grills and pizza ovens. Eventually, I would like to merge the two into one structure. I don't want to make a permanent build for various reasons. Since this will be outside, I won't need to use mortar.

    My timeline is iffy because I am taking care of a very sick dog and have a business on the side. I am hoping to start in July.

    Do you have the link to that video? I would love to see it.

    Here you go.




    Pretty respectable heat. An insulative blanket would do wonders keeping the heat in. A piece of angle iron in front of the coals would help prevent the burnt crust.

    Just curious, what are your thoughts for making a pizza with a rocket stove incorporation?

    I say why not? There are rocket cob ovens. I don't know why there aren't more outdoor rocket brick ovens. The traditional oven design is perfect for a rocket stove. I have the patience of a gnat so it works great for me - fast cooking and mortarless (which would allow me to take the oven apart and put together over and over again).
