Pizza Oven Dome Insulation Design

There are a few ways you can go to make sure your oven is well insulated. We recommend at least 3″ of high-density (8 pcf) ceramic blanket insulation for the dome, or a combination of 2″ of blanket insulation with an additional 2-4″ of vermiculite or perlite concrete. Proper insulation isn’t very expensive, relative to the overall cost of the project to properly insulate the oven dome, and you will be glad you did it. Your oven will retain more heat for high temperature pizza baking, and it will retain more heat for baking and roasting once your fire has gone out.

Insulate more. You won’t regret it.
