  • My Pompeii Oven Build

    I built my Pompeii oven with no prior experience using only information from Forno Bravo. I started with the base in October 2014 & finished the oven the following summer. I mainly use the oven to bake bread & less frequently for pizza, bagels & giant pretzels. I usually make a slow-cook type meal like baked beans or ribs the day after firing the oven to use the residual heat.
    The purpose of this post is to thank Forno Bravo for being such a great resource for hobby bakers like me. I followed their build publication & got encouragement from many posts in these forums.
    During construction I was too busy to post photos however you can see the complete set here:
    I just hosted a large group for pizza & the oven performed flawlessly. You can see the video here:

    Thanks again Forno Bravo.

      Nice oven, and great idea on the party. I've not tried a build your own pizza event, but your video makes it look fun. I'll have to try that. Thanks for sharing.
