Natural Building - The Cob Pizza Oven I have always wanted to build a pizza oven. When we moved to Metz Meadows, I knew this was something that I wanted to add to the property as quickly as possible. Wood-fired pizza is my favorite. We frequently make this beautiful sourdough (from Chad Robertson at Tartine Bread) and the same dough makes a wonderful pizza crust. I was excited to get the full experience by constructing an oven in which to fire up some pizza at blazing-hot temperatures.
