Hi everyone, my first post on here apart from my first blog entry.
I'm getting into baking bread in a big way. My family says the smell of fresh bread really makes a house a home and for me its so rewarding. I was facinated by the sour dough pizza recipe and I'm going to give it a try in a few weeks time when I have a bit of normal sour dough bread baking under my belt. I would love to build a pizza oven in my garden, the idea of having friends and family sat out in the garden during the summer, each having a pizza in the oven has got its hooks into me, since we love our BBQ's so much.
I wondered if anyone has built a pizza oven and has any advice?
I have the rough dimensions and I am told standard bricks and cement will suffice. I am thinking about having a granite slab as the area for the pizzas to cook on.
We have a few fruit trees in our garden and my father-in-law, who smokes meats on his allotment with pear and apple wood, has got me thinking it might influence the pizza base flavour, all very exciting.
Any input really welcome!
