Can't wait to see your finished oven. Would you care to share your dough recipe?
It was almost a mad dash at the temps I was at...I can't imagine working with it at 1000 degrees or more!

Here's my dough recipe:

1 1/2 tablespoons active dry yeast

1 1/2 cups warm water (105-110 degrees F) - I've found bottled water works better.

1/2 tablespoon of sugar

1 1/2 tabspoons of olive oil

Pinch of salt

3 1/2 cups bread flour (give or take) - I start with 2 cups and add a little at a time after that.

Once the dough is kneaded well, I separate it into the portion sizes I want right then (this makes about 3 12-inch pies). Form each piece into a nice ball and place on a lightly floured baking sheet. Coat the tops/sides with olive oil and cover loosely with plastic wrap...just to keep a skin from forming on the dough balls. Let them sit at room temperature for 30 minutes.

After 30 minutes are up, move the pan to the refrigerator and let them rise in there for 1 hour. This helps make the dough elastic and easy to work with. This is the only dough I've ever been able to toss and get paper thin without tearing.

It's been interesting following your build, thanks for sharing. That looks like you'll have a lotta fun "playing" with your new toy, looking forward to seeing future cooks!
