No matter how much of a good cook you are, sometimes you are as good as your equipment. That is especially true for homemade pizza. A wood-fired pizza oven makes the best pizza. It heats up and cooks gourmet meals a lot better and faster because of the differently vibrating-out heat stored in the dense walls.
These crafty people show us how to create a wood-fired pizza oven that costs nothing to make and could produce a whole lot of goodies.
This DIY is rather unique; you will need to get outdoors and be willing to put in some work. If you can find an old oil drum and a three to four-foot pipe, you can make one of your own.
Dad drills a hole, the width of the pipe, into one end of the oil drum to create a chimney. He grabs another piece of wider pipes and cuts a short piece to go over the narrower pipe. The chimney pipe isn’t essential – the fire would burn anyway – but it makes controlling the fire easier. You need a hot oven which means a fast burning fire. Take it down or block it off when the fire is out to retain the heat.
Next, father and son cover the entire oil drum with soil. The soil is necessary because it makes it into an efficient oven. It holds the heat from the fire and then radiates it back when the fire is out. They used loose stones packed with sand to form a base, and start a fire. They use a piece of wood to block the entrance.
This family not only works hard, but they also play hard.
In aluminum trays that fit perfectly in the newly constructed oven, they build their pizzas and cakes. The pizza’s take 5 to 10 minutes to bake.
Amazing and those pizza’s look delicious, am I right? SHARE the love and pass it on.
