Rebar

Rebar (reinforcement bar) is of paramount importance in home DIY projects involving concrete work due to its ability to reinforce and strengthen the concrete structure, preventing cracking and increasing its load-bearing capacity. By adding rebar to concrete and concrete blocks, it can withstand tension forces that might cause it to fail.

Rebar is used in pizza oven building in a number of ways, including in the oven foundation, the block stand, the hearth, and potentially in the enclosure. Luckily it’s very inexpensive.

One note, long lengths are significantly more cost-effective than buying lots of shorter lengths.
