How the Best Wood Fired Brick Pizza Ovens Are Built

  • 1 min read

The Portuguese brick ovens we carry are hand-made in Lisbon, Portugal by brick-oven makers who have been perfecting their skills for generations. 

Watch how these incredible brick oven pizza ovens are masterfully built.  This full-length video shows exactly what goes into building these beautiful and authentic hand-crafted wood fired ovens from Authentic Pizza Ovens.

As shown in the video, after the cement base is poured, the floor is covered with natural yellow sand and terracotta tiles.

Next, the dome is built from natural kiln-fired rounded clay bricks. The dome shape is perfectly designed and insulated with rock wool for longer heat retention and reduced exterior temperatures (you can touch outside even when the fire is raging inside).

Wire and high-quality refractory cement is smoothed over the rock wool and painted for a beautiful pizza oven. While these ovens are beautiful as is, you can easily enhance these brick pizza ovens to match your style by applying tiles, stucco, stone veneer, brick, or paint to them.
