Let me being by saying that the pizzas that I made using this oven are amazing. I also want to complement iLFornino for making the design simple and including everything to get started. I would definitely recommend purchasing a book on how to cook in a wood fire pizza oven. I made 24 amazing pizzas for New Years eve in less than an hour, and the oven was the star of the party. I read all of the reviews both good and bad before purchasing this oven and let me tell you this is a 5 star product especially if you take the time to read how to heat the oven with the correct fire location. Thank you for a great product. I attached a picture of our New Years pizzas.
