It involves a little bit of the usual steelworks, but this project is way simpler than molding a cement or clay pizza oven. You don’t have to worry about the dome as the oil barrel itself makesĀ the dome. And you don’t have to spend as much time building it as you would a clay or brick pizza oven!

It’s a relatively easy steel project since some of the steps can be done with simple tools like a drill and tin snips.
