Step 1

Build a reinforced base from concrete or steel. The base needs to be a minimum size of 1.3m x 1.2m to fit the pizza oven. Ideally go bigger if you wish to have room around it to leave down utensils, pizzas etc.

Step 2

Put down a layer of 25mm fibre blanket. On top of this form a 4” / 100mm layer of Vermiculite Concrete. N.B. This vermiculite concrete is not for structural use. You will need a reinforced base underneath.

Step 3 – Check the Base is Perfectly Level

Step 4

Place the oven floor sections in position, centred on the base. Fix in place using a little cement / Dinset. Place the dome without mortar in position.

Step 5

Assemble the front arch as shown using modular arch bricks on each side. Insert the door to make sure it fits correctly before jointing the pieces.

Step 6

Put on top flue gather brick and insert flue in chimney opening. Use Dinset to secure.

Step 7

Cut & stick the fibre blanket to the dome using Dinset / Cement.

Step 8

Cover dome with 4” / 100mm Vermiculite. A second layer of blanket and cement may be added to the top of the dome to ensure no heat loss.

Step 9

Stick on slip bricks and add second flue if required

Step 10

When finishing the insulation coat use a slightly wetter concrete vermiculite mix to achieve a smooth finish. Leave to set for at least 24 hours. Then dry slowly in open air or with small fires. 1
