Homemade Portable Pizza Oven

After a lot of research about wood-fired artisan pizza ovens I started thinking it might be fun to come up with an idea to build an affordable unit that anyone could do and have in their backyard..so i did it ..I built a 900+ degree oven for less then 300.00 and it is fun to take it RV camping and of course you could be a big hit tailgating with it as well ..I started out searching craigslist and found a magic chef wall oven for free...I liked the idea since I was able to start with an oven..I gutted it and disassembled it then put it back together but repacking the insulation with kiln insulation..I put a inverted wok in the top to work as a dome and laid in a layer of fire-brick on the bottom where I placed a 10psi propane burner that is removable as are the firebricks..I used a corderite pizza insert for my cooking platform I then placed 2 kiln shelfs on top and put the whole unit on a 4-wheel dolley...anyway it works great and did not take more then a few hours to do and since it is portable and will bake a pie in 90 seconds it is something you could take on the road...Any comments anybody??Oh btw I did come up with a fabulous recipe that i use both in it and my home oven where i also use a corderite cooking stone and a terracotta top with firebrick walls all removable in a few minutes..
