A Sturdy DIY Cob Oven


Why order pizza when you can bake your own? Not only do you save money, but you’re also sure that what you serve your family is fresh and nutritious!

Serving freshly baked pizza and bread in your outdoor living area is a great way to entertain your family and friends. But you don’t have to spend a lot of money to build a full-size outdoor kitchen. This DIY cob oven may look like a pixie house, but it will allow you to bake homemade pizza and bread for years.
