Instructables user fritz.bogott made this very fancy earth pizza oven, and documented every step of the way. He writes:

After several years of baking in North House Folk School’s wood-fired brick oven, I decided to build an oven of my own. I went a little crazy with extra features (slab foundation, arches, ash dump, chimney, doors, wood storage) and decorations (limestone around the foundation), but you can make a very usable version in a weekend with salvaged materials and a couple of friends.

    Excellent! See also the “Build Your Own Earth Oven” entry on Kevin Kelly’s Cool Tools website. The book mentioned there is quite helpful.
