Building a Pizza Oven Stand
To help you build a stand suitable to support our D105 PreCut Brick Oven Kit, we’ve put together a detailed guide to walk you through the process. Our suggestion is to build stand walls using bricks, Adbri Versaloc Interlocking concrete blocks, or Besser blocks, which are filled with concrete and reinforcing steel. A suspended slab of reinforced concrete is then formed up and poured to create the benchtop to support the oven. The stand must be built on reinforced concrete foundations – if you’re building on soft ground you may need to consult a builder to ensure your foundations are adequate.
We recommend that you build your stand to a height in the range of 920mm to 1120mm height from ground level. The key is to build to a height that allows you to see the food that’s cooking without bending down. You’ll spend a lot longer looking into the oven than you will using your oven tools, so build your stand to a height that allows you to do that.
We have put together detailed instructions showing you our suggested process for building your Wood Fired Pizza Oven Stand, and determining the best height for the stand, please see the link below.

SAFE FLUE INSTALLATION
If your installation involves anything more complex than the basic setup that we provide in the kit, you must engage a suitably qualified plumber to supply and install the flue for you. Your local fireplace store will have several professionals they can recommend. Your oven can reach extreme temperatures, to the point where the flue glows orange.
This is extremely important. If you install your own flue system and your oven somehow causes a catastrophic fire, your home insurance cover may be null and void. Put this in the same category as working with high voltage electricity - the risks outweigh the rewards. Don’t risk it, use a licensed plumber.
