Homemade Wood-Fired Pizza

Many of the local homes here have an outdoor wood-burning oven.  Sometimes they are little stand-alone ones, or built into an outdoor cooking area.  One of our neighbors recently installed one in his yard, and constructed a nice little building for it, too, so that they can prepare food, cook and eat out there!  And a few weeks ago, he invited us over for a wood-fired pizza party.  Both families prepared a batch of dough and gathered some toppings and went to work.  The adults made the food while the kids from both families had a blast playing outside in their large yard.  In total, we made about 9 pizzas, each with a different combo of toppings.  It was so fun and the pizza was absolutely delicious.  Following are some photos of the fun.  (Some have captions underneath.)
