For my taste there is no bread comparable to a hot bread fresh from your own oven built with your hands. Today you can see the process of building a clay oven, for cooking with a rich natural flavor.
To build this homemade oven from the beginning, you will have a hard job, placing the stones, going through the filler with clay mortar, making the door arch and the dome, and finishing with clay mortar or sand for the bricks . It could take us days, but the good thing is that using recycled materials, we would only spend about $ 20 on the entire structure. You will no longer have problems baking a delicious pizza in your wood-fired pizza oven.
If you have the possibility I assure you it will be worth it. You have three possibilities, these two manuals: one in Spanish of Dandelion very well explained everything, one in English also very complete of The year of Mud where they assure us that for $ 20 you can have one, and this video where you can see live construction step by step:
This constructive method was already used in England during the thirteenth century. The method uses a mixture of soil, sand and clay mixed with straw to form a block. These blocks used to be shaped like bread, giving this technique the name “cob”, in old English “bread.” It was the most common building material in England until it was replaced by cooked bricks during the middle ages.
