I tried deleting the flows so that pinging from one host to another should not work, but pinging seems to re-create the flows. Is there a way to disable this?

By default, ovs-vswitch runs in standalone fail-mode, which will setup flows automatically when not connected to a controller.  Try looking at the "set−fail−mode" command in ovs-vsctl, which is documented in the associated man page, to see if it does what you want.
