pizza oven made from an old car

Fun Friday! The Ultimate in Maker Pizza!

So, this project may not necessarily be accessible to most of us, but for those of us who love pizza, or those of us with a penchant for learning new cooking techniques, this project certainly looks like a whole lot of fun!

Love Pizza?  Here’s a Pizza Oven Unlike Any Other!

There are probably any number of things that can be done to recycle an old car that’s pretty much had the biscuit: donate to your nearest volunteer fire department (they can always use old cars for practicing rescues and extractions), a unique wildflower planter, a pretty cushy doghouse, or maybe even a funky chicken coop.

This idea… well, this one’s probably not the first many of us would think of!

Leave it to French artist Benedetto Bufalino to come up with one of the more unique and practical ways to repurpose an old car.

Bufalino has made a name for himself transforming and repurposing old cars and other otherwise useless items into cool and interesting objects.  Playable ping pong tables made from upside down cars, aquariums from telephone booths, fun and innovative designs from ordinary, discarded stuff.  In true maker spirit, the french artist hacked an old Ford Mondeo into a fully functioning, pizza lovers dream of a wood-burning pizza oven where the pies come out looking as delectable as any restaurant.

He cut out the windows of the old Ford and removed all the technical and internal components including the seats and wheels. A shelf within the car interior was constructed and covered in an all-brick surface to sustain the heat required to bake. Wood logs positioned, ignited, and voila! A singular and unique pizza oven that could easily be the envy of any traditional pizzeria.

Devised while Bufalino was a participant at cultural art association 2angles based in France, the car-turned-pizza-cooker attracted many visitors who wanted to check out the car that doesn’t burn gas — but wood.
