Brick Oven Basics - Building & Baking
Curious about baking wood-fired pizza and bread in your backyard, but not ready to commit to permanent oven construction? Want to find a cheaper alternative to a prefabricated oven? Join us and learn how to build a portable stacked-brick oven from loose bricks. After the oven is built, we will fire it up and learn how to make dough for flatbread, pizza, and artisan bread. Then we will bake, eat, and have a good time!
