One of the critical components of this project should start with your pizza oven kit purchase. We recommend our Chicago Brick Oven 500 or 750 bundle. The Chicago Brick Oven pizza oven kit includes everything you need for the pizza oven side. This would include the entire 1 piece dome, allowing for an easy install eliminating the modular multi-piece pizza oven dome will eliminate mortar joints giving you a stronger structure. We also like this one piece dome because the low height and shape of the dome is engineered and designed to keep all of the heat rolling around inside the pizza oven with minimal heat loss. The picture below is a Chicago Brick Oven 750 kit to use as a reference.
You take our Chicago Brick Oven kit and incorporate it into the overall design of the fireplace pizza oven using any type of block or brick pavers to match your outdoor living space. The pizza oven should have a separate chimney stack that can be hidden to look like it is combined with the fireplace. If you get one of our kits, the dome has a whole that is located front and center where you would insert the flu adapter and flu ring along with the pipe, all of these components are included except for the pipe. You can contact The Outdoor Pizza Oven Company to start planning your outdoor fireplace and pizza oven project. 800-256-5534

It’s summer time and that means S.TEAK. I recently watched a TV show called United States Of America where the host travels the country for the best steaks. I talk a lot about the versatility of the outdoor wood fired brick ovens sold at The Outdoor Pizza Oven Company and one of our favorite meals to prepare are wood fired steaks. The high heat combined with the oak wood and light smoke creates the best tasting steak you will ever eat. Our seasoning or a good wood fired steak consists sea salt, onion powder and garlic powder. This can be a dry rub or my personal favorite is butter. You should also try and catch all the juices, then dip the steak back in the juice while it rests. I promise you if you do a wood fired steak this way, you will be a have your guests cheering. United Steaks Of America TV show was a great documentary on places o get steak if you master a couple techniques you can make something over the top. the best method to maximize the flavor is with a properly built brick oven that has a fire rolling around inside the oven as the video below shows.
Get good meat that is cut fresh and has some fat content. My favorite steaks are T-Bone, NY Strip and a nice thick Delmonico The steak should be two inches thick or more, this will allow you to give the outside a great sear and keep the inside tender and juicy. Don’t keep touching and turning the steak, let it sear on each side and get it out. If you can cook it in a wood burning oven, that’s where the magic happens. When I cook anything wood fired I use the Chicago Brick Oven 750 and you can get it as a pizza oven kit or if you prefer not to build we have them available ready to cook delivered to your door.
My favorite steak has to be the Porter House the T-bone and porterhouse are steaks of beef cut from the short loin. Both steaks include a “T-shaped” bone with meat on each side. and the video below captures Carmen Paresi grilling up some steaks in his wood fired outdoor brick oven.

So how does an outdoor pizza oven work?
A fire should be Built slowly with good hardwood like oak, the in-chamber fire and the low dome shape of a properly built wood burning oven, creates a beautiful rolling fire within the chamber you are cooking your food so the secret to cooking in our wood-fired brick oven is the high temperature and the heat vacuum created by our rolling fire. The concentrated heat and temperatures of up to 1,000° cooks and interacts with foods in a way that cannot be replicated on grills, eggs or imitation wood-fired brick ovens. This is the true wood-fired taste. No moving parts, nothing electrical or mechanical! Wood, fire and simple ingredients are the secret components to making great food!

I see more and more outdoor pizza oven plans floating around online but they all seem to share they same basic design that uses old school fire brick that has multiple pieces mortared together. Firebrick has worked for thousands of years but one of the obvious flaws is the chance for cracking at the mortar joints. If you have a dome that consists of multiple firebricks that are connected you run the risk of cracking specifically when you blasting the dome of the oven at 800 to 100 degrees.
Pizza Oven plans using a Chicago Brick Oven Kit
One of the best pizza oven’s I have personally cooked in uses a 1 piece refractory dome. the one piece dome has no mortar joints and therefore the risk of cracking is significantly diminished. I personally cook in a Chicago Brick Oven that has been outside in extreme East Coast weather for 4 years and the oven has yet to experience any type of cracking. The outdoor pizza oven plans I used are easy to follow and the 1 piece dome makes assembly extremely easy. The pizza oven kit’s offered by Chicago Brick Oven make great DIY Pizza Oven projects and the pizza oven plans are easy to follow. Follow the link above and you can download a free step by step install guide.
The Kit I use is the 750 model and we love it! Check out the flameRoll inside the pizza oven, this is how you know you built a great oven, you got a convevtion oven going with the flameroll.

Chicago Brick Oven did it again! CBO has just released what I would cosider the game change in the mobile wood fired catering industry with their new wood fired catering pizza oven.
The mobile catering business is HOT right now and The Chicago Brick Oven Catering unit smashes the competition! The following are a couple of reasons why we believe the CBO Catering pizza oven is the best on the market.
- American Made-Made in Chicago . All other mobile catering pizza ovens sold are from China or Europe-
- Light weight, just 1,000 pounds where all the other catering units are well over 3,000 pounds. So you don’t need a special vehicle to tow!
- The Inside Dome is a solid 1 piece high grade refractory blend supported with an internal structure of thousands of needles that prevent cracking, the dome and hearth are surrounded with commercial grade insulating material so the oven wont crack. The outside is a powder coated enamel, so no matter what climate you live in the pizza oven can withstand all weather conditions.
- Production- how about 45-60 pizza’s an hour!
- Heat- Over 1000 degrees is you choose to get it that hot!
- Price- 8,500 well below the nearest catering pizza oven.
- Built in storage- Enough space to carry all your supplies without all the extra weight and size.
- The unit is very compact making it very easy to get in and out of events.
