Dome Materials

Wood pizza oven domes can be constructed using a variety of materials, including firebrick, castable refractory, and stainless steel. Firebrick is a popular choice due to its excellent heat retention and durability. It is specifically designed to withstand high temperatures and provides a solid structure for the dome. Castable refractory, on the other hand, offers versatility as it can be molded and shaped to create custom dome designs. It provides good insulation and heat resistance. Stainless steel is a viable option for the oven dome, particularly in small or portable ovens, as it is lightweight, though stainless steel ovens do not retain heat for baking and roasting. Each of these materials has its own unique advantages and considerations, allowing builders to choose the best option based on their specific requirements and preferences.
