What’s a better way to bake bread and pizza than in a natural oven? It’s more fun and thrilling to use, yields better-tasting food, and of course, do not consume electricity!
Earth ovens combine the utility of a wood-fired, retained-heat oven with the ease and timeless beauty of earthen construction. Building one will appeal to bakers, builders, and beginners of all kinds.
Earthen ovens like this have existed since the 18th century. Given that, one can already figure that the building process is very basic, and can be done even by first-time DIY-ers. You don’t even need any tools to put everything together.
