Do-It-Yourself Roma-style Kit*   Peels Out Oven
  • Modular design.

  • Cold cast from concrete poured into a mold imported from another country.

  • Dome thickness: 1.5"

  • Must be assembled and finished by the customer.

  • 347 lbs** oven

  • 1 layer of 1" insulation blanket

  • The exterior requires finishing by a person skilled in proper stucco application techniques.

  • MSRP: $2,100.00

  • No stand included (optional: $900 extra)

  • Plus the cost of the long list of materials necessary to finish the oven which are not included.

* The finished product requires the proper application of finish brickwork, tile setting, and/or stucco work. All of these disciplines require many, many hours of training in order to produce a fine finished product. Very rarely will a first attempt at any art form produce a pleasing end product that will last the test of time. Just something to consider.



  • Complete & Ready-to-Cook
  • Authentic Firebrick oven! No molded parts from pouring concrete into a form. Our ovens are of medium-duty firebrick which are comprised of roughly 35% alumina and 50% silica, heat up quickly, easily withstand the 900+F heat your oven will reach, and are designed for the rapid heat-up and cool down (thermal cycling) that your oven will experience. Firebrick will also reach the heat required for pizza more quickly than clay brick, as they are more efficient at conducting heat.

    Further, because medium-duty firebrick is designed to withstand thermal cycling, your oven will last longer, and they are resistant to spalling (chipping and flaking) which is common with cheaper cast concrete and clay brick ovens.

  • Steel reinforced dome and arch.
  • Dome thickness: 4.5"
  • Hi-Temp (2,500oF) refractory mortar.
  • 1,600 lbs** oven bricks
  • 3 layers of 1" spun ceramic insulation blanket completely surrounds the entire oven, excluding the floor.
  • 2.5" thick rigid insulating brick base beneath oven floor.
  • Complete 3-stage stucco finish (scratch, brown, and finish color coat).
  • Inset tile accents.
  • Oven is completely thermally disconnected from the steel frame and stucco finish.

  • MIG welded powder-coated steel stand with integrated wood rack (available in several colors; black is standard).

  • Insulated red oak oven door with built-in thermostat.
  • Handcrafted steel hood and stack.
  • Stainless steel wind-directional chimney cap.

** The greater the mass, the more heat is stored and the more even cooking temperatures
    are maintained. Our ovens have 2 to 5 times the mass as cast DYI competitor ovens.
