Wood Fired Oven Instructions

Superior Clay’s Brick Ovens are considered “Black Ovens” meaning, they heated by building a fire inside the Oven chamber.  Some foods such as pizza, cooks fast in a hot oven (3 minutes at about 700 degrees F) and are cooked in the oven while the fire is still burning.


Superior Clay Brick ovens are available in 4 sizes, from 18″ to 48″. Superior Clay has developed a set of plans for the construction of these traditional brick and masonry ovens. Our wood fired ovens can be built alongside a Rumford fireplace or as a standalone unit in your kitchen or back yard. Refer to the drawing for important measurements.
