It might just have been an uninteresting concrete pathway that led out to the oven but, but no, they have fancied up the concrete with some leaf impressions.
I am still puzzling over these first ones because in the photo you would swear they were in relief. The sun, low in the sky must be creating the illusion.
Either way they captured my attention when walking out towards the patio.
Here's their magnificent pizza oven.
So how exactly do you serve pizza to a crowd? Everyone is in charge of their own pizza. First you have to roll your own dough. You pinch a piece off the dough from the bucket, roll it out, put it on a piece of parchment paper on a plate. Next you choose your toppings. Spoilt for choice might sum this up.
Then it's time to take your pizza out to be baked. It slips into the oven on its piece of parchment which I am told helps prevent the bottom getting burnt.
A short time later out it comes.
The pizzas came out in pretty rapid succession and one or two were made extra large for sharing while waiting for others to bake.
On the way home David was wondering where we could built a similar oven but that's one project I don't think will never happen.
