Ooni Fyra Pizza Oven uses wood pellets to simulate a wood burning oven plus a stone to cook pizza on. It is suppose to reach up to 950 degrees if everything goes perfect which has not happen for me yet. I have used only twice since November 2020.

​I used Amazon to purchase everything I need to use for the pizza oven. I got Antimo Caputo 00 Pizzeria Floor from Naples, Italy. Canned San Marzano tomatoes grown around Mount Vesuvius. Mantova Italian Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Traeger Oak Wood Pellets & Hooboy Natural Fire Starters. Stand Up Mixer for mixing and kneading dough. Scales to weigh dough to right portions. Pizza peel and high temperature thermometer to measure heat of pizza oven and stone. Proofing container for dough balls and solid pizza cutter.

While spending my 8 1/2 months (Feb.-Oct. 2020) in 3 different hospitals and 3 different rehab centers my focus was on what I was going to do once I got out. I made a wish list of things I wanted to do, things to keep me focus and help me get better.

My first wish was to get a pizza oven that was portable and inexpensive. I had my phone with me so I was able to look up things to see what I could afford. I wanted pizza like I had when I was stationed Naples, Italy. It was called a Neapolitan pizza since it was wood burning at over 700 degrees.

My second wish was for Zen Center and Zen Garden. My third wish was to have an Entertainment Center including popcorn popper like a movie theater.

A week before I ended up in the hospital we had gotten a large screen TV. I wanted to make an Entertainment Center in our living room.

My Zen Garden

Top row: Lava Lamp, planter for Bonsai Dawn Redwood seeds, lamp and Water Fall.​

​Bottom row: Incense Waterfall and Stick Incense Burner.

Once I got home I needed things to help me relax and focus on getting better. I decided to set up a Zen area where I would be sitting in my wheelchair all day. I also had a table where I eat and have all the remotes.

First thing I bought was a Bonsai tree hoping it grow and I could trim it. Next was a waterfall and burn since I had a box already to burn incense sticks. My favorite my incense is "Black Love". I also got a incense waterfall which I love to watch. The Bonsai tree started to die and I have no idea why so I put a Lava Lamp in its place. I bought Bonsai Dawn Redwood seeds to grow it myself and see how it does.

My daughter recommended I should get a Zen Garden to me also. So I bought one that fit on my table so I can change whenever I want.
