Stacked Brick Ovens

These are ovens built without permanent mortar. They are known as stacked brick ovens, dry-stacked brick ovens, dry-laid brick ovens, instant brick ovens, or mortarless brick ovens. Some temporary ovens are also made from stacked bricks.

Brick Ovens for the Cheapscate

Brick Ovens for the Cheapskate
The Anasazi Oven is based on a simple concept: everybody knows how to stack building blocks. You also have to pour some concrete, unless you get creative with the foundation and roof. It is a simple oven, and the best for the timid DIY adventurer.
Brick Ovens for the Cheapskate
Brick Ovens for the Cheapskate
I have built The Anasazi Oven and I can testify that it does work. I made a few minor modifications from my plans. Most importantly, I used mud to fill in the gaps between bricks and concrete (my concrete slab was anything but perfectly flat), I used a 4ʺ×4ʺ×16ʺ long concrete “brick” over the arch (again because of the poor fit of the roof), and I wrap a layer of aluminum foil around the outside of the oven for improved heat retention.

While waiting for the opportunity to bake in the stacked brick oven 4.0, which was built June 26, 2009, I took our extra bricks and built a small oven to experiment with. Because most of the extra bricks were fire bricks, the small oven held the heat very well.

Three days ago I got some free bricks on Craigslist here at our new “offices” in Palo Alto, and built a brick oven so we can have totally sweet pizza parties all summer long. I took some pictures – it looks kind of shabby but makes deliciously wonderful pizzas. Adobe mortar used liberally.
