The homeowner wanted a space for entertaining and cooking outside. So, Imagine Brick designed and constructed a Pompeii Oven as the centerpiece. Carpentry work completed this fine outdoor pavilion.
While commonly called a "Pizza Oven" today, the brick or masonry oven is a traditional cooking solution dating back to the ancient Egyptians and used since throughout the world in various designs including the Indian tandoor oven. This particular one has now been used for tandoori bread, pizzas, pretzels, steaks, chops, kebabs, crab cakes and vegetables du jour. It all comes out delicious because the food is cooked not only by circulating hot air as with a modern gas or electric oven, but also by radiant and conductive heat from the hot dense masonry. Food is moist and tender and cooks quickly.
