Building a wood fired pizza oven is not hard. Actually, building a pizza oven is quite easy! And while there are countless methods on how to build a pizza oven floating around the internet, there is no easier (or correct) way to build a pizza oven than by using the Mattone Barile Grande foam form. We’ve taken the science out of building a wood fired pizza oven by creating an easy-to-use foam form that holds your fire brick at the optimum height, width, depth and angle so you can easily build a perfectly proportioned wood fired pizza oven in a classic barrel shape.
Simply place fire brick snugly between the elevated ridges along the Mattone Barile Grande foam form, then mortar the fire bricks into place with refractory mortar, fireplace mortar or a similar type of non-water soluble high-temperature mortar. Once the high-temp mortar is dry, remove the foam form and perform a few curing fires before hosting your first pizza party. Keep in mind, pizza ovens perform much better when they are wrapped with 2 or 3 layers of ceramic fiber blanket (which comes with the Mattone Barile Grande / Package 2).

While the majority of your masonry materials can be found at your local Big Box hardware store (Lowes, Home Depot, Menards, Rona), be sure to visit your local Landscape & Masonry Supply Stores first! Not only are you supporting local businesses, but most Landscape & Masonry supply stores stock those hard-to-find items that the Box Box stores just don't carry. Items like Fire Brick, Fireclay, Lime, Stucco, etc... all the components necessary to build a pizza oven while on a budget. Prices on fire brick at your local landscape supply are usually LOWER than fire brick purchased directly from the manufacturer ($2.50 avg. per fire brick).
Want professional-grade refractory materials for your pizza oven project? How about a "just add water" high-temp mortar that is rated to 2800° vs. mixing / making high-temp mortar with silica sand, fire clay, portland cement & lime? Then you need to purchase your refractory materials from a manufacturer like HarbisonWalker International ($4.25 avg. per fire brick). With over 30+ HarbisonWalker locations, there's a good chance you live in (or near) a city with a HarbisonWalker distribution center. If pallet pick-up is not an option, most HarbisonWalker locations can schedule local / regional freight delivery for your order to your home or jobsite. Here are some money-saving Freight / Pallet Delivery Options if you choose pallet delivery.
