Most wood-fired pizza ovens I’ve seen are built to last. The folks over at Machine Project built this temporary oven for a recent event and self-proclaimed pizza fanatic Mike Senese of Catch It Keep It fame was kind enough to document its construction. [Thanks, Max!]

I attended a fantastic pizza making event at Machine Project (instructor: Michael O’Malley) that included the construction and firing of a DIY temporary brick pizza oven – the ultimate in pizza cooking. Hugely educational and inspiring, even for a committed pizza fanatic such as myself. The oven, built, fired up, and torn down over the course of an afternoon, worked amazingly well – I cooked the best pizza I’ve ever made, by far.

    There’s a awesome book on this called, “Build Your Own Earth Oven”. Great read and very informative.

    How funny, I was in this group too. The pizzas were great. I had no idea that was the guy from Catch It Keep It though. Go figure.
