"The color of the outdoor pizza oven is the same as our house and the brick are the same. Also wanted the pizza oven to blend into the green background. I used old world techniques taught to me by Sivio, Armond and Pepi Milani. Who came over from Italy after WWII. My brother and I were journeymen masons by the time we were 17."
