This step by step article is about outdoor pizza oven plans, pointing out the main bricklaying techniques and materials required for this project. Generally speaking, building a brick oven is a complex process, as it involves many steps and it requires proper planning, coordination and attention to details. Nevertheless, you can get the job done by yourself and save a significant amount of money, if you follow the instructions and pay attention to our tips. All you have to do is to use quality materials and to practice the bricklaying techniques before starting the actual project.

In order to obtain a professional result, we recommend you to glue the bricks together using a mix of clay and fine sand (6:4 ratio). If you use a cement-based mortar, it won’t resist to the high temperatures developed in the brick dome. Therefore, you should replace this mortar with a traditional compound, made of sand and clay. On the other hand, you need to plumb the courses of concrete blocks and bricks, by using a spirit level, in order to obtain a professional result.

Outdoor pizza oven plans

Outdoor pizza oven plans

First of all, you have to build a sturdy foundation for the outdoor pizza oven. Therefore, you should select a level surface and excavate about 10” in the ground. Next, build a basic form from 2×10 lumber and install it into place with 2×4 takes. Use a spirit level to make sure the form is perfectly level.

Install a reinforcing net in for 1 last update 2020/07/07 the form, making sure you place it on several 5” spacers. Secure the form with 3” screws, to remove the form easily.Install a reinforcing net in the form, making sure you place it on several 5” spacers. Secure the form with 3” screws, to remove the form easily.

Pouring a concrete foundation

Mix a small quantity of concrete (2 parts cement, 3 parts sand, 4 parts gravel and water) in a power mixer or in a wheelbarrow. After you fill the form with concrete, you should level the foundation with a straight edge, moving it along the sides of the form.

Top Tip: Vibrate the concrete with a vibrator or hit the form with a hammer. In this manner you will remove the pockets of air that might damage the foundation, over time.

Building the base of the pizza oven

Let the concrete to dry out for at least 72 hours, before laying the concrete blocks. Place a block at the beginning of the course and another one at the end. Tie a string to their exterior and lay the rest of the concrete blocks.

Top Tip: Mix a small quantity of mortar in a bucket, using the following recipe: 3 parts of cement with 5 parts of fine sand. The mortar should have the consistency of cream.

Laying the concrete blocks

Continue laying the concrete blocks in the for 1 last update 2020/07/07 same manner described above (use the stretcher bond). Use safety gloves when spreading the mortar, as the cement-based compound might damage your skin. Remove the excess material before it hardens, in order to obtain a neat look.Continue laying the concrete blocks in the same manner described above (use the stretcher bond).

Top Tip: Plans For Gambrel Barnhow to Plans For Gambrel Barn for Plumb the blocks with a spirit level and adjust their position if necessary. In addition, make sure the courses are level, by tapping them gently with a mallet. 

Countertop form

After laying four block courses, build the form for the concrete counter-top. Therefore, use 2×6 slats and 4×4 posts to build a basic form. Work with attention and good judgement,  making sure you don’t leave gaps between the slats.

Use a spirit level to check if the surface of the form is horizontal. Moreover, do not secure the components together with screws or nails, otherwise it would be difficult to remove the form.

Let the concrete counter-top to dry out for at least 72 hours, before building the brick oven. The first step is to lay the fire bricks and build the cooking floor. Therefore, use the pattern that can be seen in the image to obtain a proper result.

Mix a small quantity of mortar (4 parts fine sand with 6 parts fire clay) to glue the bricks together. Don’t use a cement-based mortar, as it won’t resist to the temperatures developed inside the oven.

Building the lower walls

Next, build the walls of the brick oven by laying fire bricks along the edges of the cooking floor. As you should notice in our free plans, you have to lay the fire brick in the stretcher bond, using a clay mortar (4 parts fine sand, 6 parts fire clay).

Plans For Gambrel Barnhow to Plans For Gambrel Barn for Top Tip: Use a spirit level to plumb the walls of the brick pizza oven, in order to obtain a professional result. Lay three courses of fire bricks, making sure they are level.

Arch template

Continue the project by laying a few more bricks on the back wall of the pizza oven, before building the arched top. In order to obtain a professional result, we recommend you to build an arched template from 1/2” plywood. Place the template on a few bricks, to lock it into place.

Top Tip: You can adjust the height of the arch, according to your needs ,but you have to make sure it harmonize with the rest of the pizza oven.

Building the top arch

Lay the fire bricks, one by one, and glue them together with a mix of sand and fire clay (4:6 ratio). Work with great care and good judgement, ensuring the bricks are aligned at both ends.

Apply the fire clay mortar between the bricks and remove the excess material with a wet sponge. If you let the compound to dry out, you won’t be able to remove it and to get a neat appearance. Don’t remove the template before the mortar dries out.

Opening arch plans

Place the bricks on top of the small template and fill the gap till the arched top with small pieces of fire bricks. Fill the small gaps with a mix of sand and fire clay, as a cement-based mortar won’t resist to the high temperatures developed inside the brick oven.

Top Tip: Every time you lay an extra brick, you need to use a spirit level, to make sure they are plumb and level. Adjust the size of the bricks with a wet saw, every time is necessary.

Chimney plans

Next, you need to build the base of the chimney and leave a hole to leave the smoke out of the dome. Work with great care, making sure you leave enough space to leave the smoke out. Taking into account that the base has to support the weight of the chimney, you should reinforce it properly.

Last but not least, after you have build the brick oven in your backyard, you could increase its thermal efficiency by applying an insulating layer. Nevertheless, if you like the traditional look of the bricks, you could leave it in this state, making sure you protecting it from rain and snow.

Top Tip: Cement render the walls of the base and cover the foundation and the counter-top with stone or ceramic tile. Use one of these thermometers to control the heat inside the over, so you don’t end up burning your pizza.

      Is there any way to apply the insulating layer you referred to without having the insulation visible and above the brick? Also, do you have any guess as to how much more heat efficiency is gained with the insulation? Thanks. I plan to build this on a platform of a patio I am starting this weekend.

      • Ovidiu at - Reply

        No, I don’t think there is another way to get the job done. Probably at least 50% more efficiency.

      Jack, I tried to upload some photos of the finished project. But I’m afraid it kinda died and I don’t think it worked. Can you check and see if its there? I don’t see it.

      Tks

        I haven’t got anything. Try uploading one or two images at a time, using the form. I have an upload limit set, so if your images are large, it won’t work.

      Hey, quick question.

      I finish my oven about 4 months ago. Have used it about 20 times now, getting really good now at pizza making. But I can’t help but notice 2 things. When its really cold, as in right now, the bricks shrink? Also, I’m seeing some pretty healthy looking cracks on the walls of the oven. Not just on the grout lines, but the actual bricks have cracked? How is that possible. I thought these bricks are supposed to be able to handle the heat? I can’t tell if its cracked on the ceiling or not as I can’t see.

      Any ideas on whether I need to be concerned, or is this normal?

      Tks

      • Ovidiu at - Reply

        I don’t think the bricks shrink. Regarding the second part of your concern, I can say that my oven has some bricks cracked, but I have built it more than 5 years ago. It seems unlikely that quality bricks would crack after only 4 months. If the bricks come in direct contact with the weather elements, there are exposed to cracking when you heat it up. If you build a roof, the oven would be better protected.

        • rocker at -

          The oven has a good layer of insulation and then sheet metal over that. So the weather has not contact with the brick, except from the entrance.

          Re. shrinkage. I don’t know of any other reason for the new gaps between the floor bricks. They must have shrunk. Its not like I bought the cheapest fire bricks. They were the only ones available, and weren’t exactly cheap. I’ll keep using the oven until it falls down… I guess. But will stop using it during winter, as I’m not sure the cold / hot temperature changes are good for it. Up in Ontario Canada, it gets pretty cold.

      If I insulate the fire bricks with a common thin brick, would I still need to cover the oven to keep it from getting wet ?

      Plans For Gambrel Barnhow to Plans For Gambrel Barn for Hi,

      The 3″ fire bricks are twice as expensive as the 2-1/2″ and almost impossible to get here in Boise, Idaho. I’m wondering if it’s possible to use the 2-1/2″ and, if so, how much of a difference would it make?

      Also, do you know of anyone who built an oven with your plans where it was built on a trailer or as a mobile oven? We’re looking at options to build a base for the oven that would support it in a trailer. Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated.

      Thanks,
      Jay

        You can use the 2 1/2″ bricks. I don’t know anyone who used my plans for that. If someone reading this can help, please leave a comment 🙂

      Great plans and thanks for posting them! I have been toying with the idea of building one of these for a while and I love the detail here!. I’ve got a few questions before I start my project though.

      1. Do you cover the top of the concrete blocks/cinder blocks before pouring the the 1 last update 2020/07/07 countertop, or do you fill them with concrete?1. Do you cover the top of the concrete blocks/cinder blocks before pouring the countertop, or do you fill them with concrete?

      Plans For Gambrel Barnhow to Plans For Gambrel Barn for 3. It looks as though you just stacked basic firebricks for the dome, then filled in the spaces with fire-mortar. Would it be more efficient, or would there be some advantage to trimming the bricks so the fit with smaller gaps?

      4. Would it be worth doing a layer of ceramic fiber insulation and then facing that with some regular/decorative surface? Would 2-3 layers of ceramic insulation be enough to protect whatever the surface was from high-heat?

      5. If I wanted to put a cap on the chimney, how much of an Air-gap should I use?

      Thanks!

      • Ovidiu at - Reply

        1. Yes
        2. Yes
        3. Yes, but I don’t think it’s worth the etra effort. You are going to insulate the dome anyway.
        4. Yes. That’s enough. It’s a homemade pizza oven not industrial, don’t have to go crazy with the insulation and such.
        5. I cannot answer that.
