Pizza oven progress! The cracks and holes that I wreaked when welding are filled with heat resistant silicone, and it got a coat of heat resistant paint. I also ordered an additional joint for the chimney that I’m still waiting for, so the chimney is only fastened temporarily. Also, an oven door is still missing because I need new material (I fucked up the old one…)

The first fire-up was just for cleaning the inside and curing the oven paint and silicone. The next one will be serious and hopefully make a nice pizza. Here’s a link to a mostly authentic (as I was told) pizza dough recipe.
