a warm Welcome
My name is Matthew Lloyd. I am an artist who also teaches wood-fired cob pizza oven making and run cob pizza oven workshops at SCHOOLS, with community groups and private commissions - as seen on TV!

Once you have experienced the thrill of wood fired cob pizza oven cooking, tasted and shared the results, you will have discovered your love for cob pizza ovens. A wood fired pizza cob oven is a foodie must-have, and perfect for obtaining that authentic wood fired pizza taste! And cob ovens are great for baking and roasting too. Come in, and let's fire up your senses!
