Hipped Roof Enclosure

The Hipped Roof Enclosure is one of the three main roof design types for a walled pizza oven enclosure. Much like the home architectural element that it uses, the hipped roof is an elegant design. It pulls its roof-line back from the four corners of the enclosure walls, which meet at the top for a full enclosure chimney design.

The hipped roof enclosure is build using metal studs and Hardiebacker board. Finish materials include stucco, brick and stone. If you are looking to build a Hipped enclosure, you should consider using a metal chimney adapter that runs your oven’s ventilation system back over the oven dome, much as you see with a Naples-style oven. That will allow you to have a low enough hipped roof design that does not appear to stick up too high.
