For clarification. Shouldn't you use firebricks on the entire inside of the oven, and not just the floor? Seems like the clay bricks and regular morter will crack.

This oven is too close to your vinyl sided house. Also, you need the oven door to keep the heat in.

Aren’t you worried the brick floor could chip, leading to small pieces of concrete in the pizza crust??

That's a fire place not a pizza oven.
