The function of a masonry oven is to trap and diffuse heat inside. The design of a pizza oven should maintain a constant temperature at all times. The smoke is evacuated through the front of the oven by means of a chimney, built above its door.

This oven is constructed with fire resistant materials. There are similar ovens, designed for making bread, which are usually built to store heat for several hours after a load of wood has been completely burned, while ovens designed for pizza are lighter in construction.
