Gabled Roof Enclosure

A pizza oven gabled roof enclosure is a very traditional architectural design that fundamentally looks like a house. You will see ovens in this style dotted across Europe, where they served as community ovens and private ovens. The gabled enclosure looks, and is built the same way you would build a house—with stud walls and roof joists, with one important exception.

The pizza oven gabled enclosure must be built with non-combustible materials, which rules out wood studs and plywood. A modern gabled pizza oven enclosure is made with metal studs and Hardiebacker and finished with a range of building materials, including stucco, stone, and brick.
