Pizza Oven Dome Design

There are a number of design options when it comes to deciding which oven dome style to choose. The most important decision is whether to build a rectangular barrel vault or a round elliptical oven dome. If you decide to build a dome oven, you will need to decide whether to use castable refractory or firebrick for the dome, and beyond that, you will need to decide on the slope and thickness of the dome.

For the vent gallery, the part of the oven that defines the entry opening and provides the means for connecting for the chimney system, you have choices over the shape of the arch, the gallery’s depth and width, and the method for providing a flat surface where you will connect your chimney.
