Siting the pizza oven

Baking in the earth oven

Pizza parties are great fun, but often the baker feels left out. The reason for this is most likely a poor layout. Often, the baker is working far from where folks are visiting.
Here's what I suggest. Have work tables right next to the oven. Making pizza takes lots of work surface. Have chairs within ten feet of the oven. If everything is not clustered by the oven, you, the hapless baker will not find helpers, and you'll have nobody to visit with while you're working.
Don't just plunk your oven down anywhere. Do your site design first.
