I am going to build a wood fired pizza oven in my backyard. Any tips on what has worked, failed, etc. (more inside)

I am going to embark on making a woodfired pizza oven in my back yard. I have read Kiko's book and I am working my way through Bread Builders.
What are the pros and cons of an earthen oven versus the masonry oven? An additional concern is that, I dont feel like the soil around my house is clean enough to make an oven. (I live near a decommissioned air base and I dont trust that the soil doesnt have contaminants).
That said where could I get clayish soil for building? I dont have any relatives or friends that have yards.
