Ovens do not need to be electric or gas-powered all the time.

In fact, you could make one via a Do-It-Yourself Project for instance shared a way on how to make a pizza oven using terra cotta pots. Electrical Association  

To execute this tutorial you will need a fire pit, grill grates, a pizza stone, charcoal, and a large terracotta pot. If you don’t have a fire pit, try making your own out of a wheelbarrow. From there, the key is to making sure you preheat your pizza stone to about 500 degrees in your oven in order to reach optimal pizza-cooking temperatures. How does the terracotta pot help? It traps the heat and circulates it around the dough, leading to that perfectly crisp crust. Sit back and get ready for the most delicious homemade slice yet.”

Twenty to 27 inches is a good size to the oven floor, but to determine your exact needs make a mock-up of what you want to bake and calculate how much space it takes. Make your oven floor by setting standard red or fire bricks on a level bed of smooth, tamped sand, 4 to 6 inches deep. Used bricks are great, but should be free of old mortar.”
