      I am updating this post with some new pictures. I am currently installing a flagstone facia to the entire oven. In addition to purchased flagstone (and repurposing the old back yard patio) I am using stones collected from my kids college (Northern Arizona University) and our visit to Sedona. I learned that the heavier stones are too much to put on the wall so I will now be breaking them into smaller pieces. Please lend your advice if you have any for me. Oh! If you know of the best way to remove concrete haze from the stones, please let me know. Thank you.

        Looks like you have made some nice headway on the stone work. The whiteish film is probably effloresence (alkali salts). You could try vinegar/water and a power sprayer but it may take something more aggressive such as a muratic acid, go down to you local big box store and see what they have. Have you fired up the oven?

          Hi Utah! We have had pizza parties galore. I have cooked chicken and potatoes too. The reality is that I have found less motivation to complete the project knowing I can cook from it! However, the pizza is simply perfection. I certainly bit off more than I expected to chew when I said, "Hey! I want to build a pizza oven." ....but still, it is worth every bit of my effort!
