This is such a rewarding project, I made a free ebook with lots more details ( otherwise this post will be 30 pages long!) you can download from link at the end!
Look at this wood-fired oven pizza! Our friend Bill has been using the oven (from last year's class) almost once a week for a year now. He makes pizzas, breads, casseroles and even dried fruits, yum!
The first step is to dance in the mud and create the earth mix.
Next, like how you would build a sand castle, pack some wet sand into a dome shape and cover with wet newspaper. The dome is built on a foundation base made of wood, fire bricks, and filled with vermiculite which provides insulation.
Make a wood oven door to go over the fire brick hearth. Shape the opening so the door fits snugly.

The final step is to add some of your own creative designs and light the first fire.
