New Forno Bravo Forum Feature

Forno Bravo Forum Community,

You will notice a new forum at the top of the main page called, "Ask Me Anything". This forum will be used for live one hour "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) sessions hosted by people who are knowledgeable in different areas pertaining to wood fired ovens. How it works:
- Each AMA will have a "sticky" thread where the community can post questions they would like answered during the live session. This will allow everyone to participate even if you can't be online for the live session. These questions will not be answered by the host until the live AMA; if you need an answer quickly, you should post it in the appropriate Forum area for the community to respond.
- Another thread will be posted for the live AMA. Registered users who are logged in during the live session can interact with the host by asking questions and receiving responses.
- The live thread will remain in the AMA forum to view after the session.

To kick off our AMA feature, we have invited author, chef and master bread maker and host of Pizza Quest, Peter Reinhart, to be our first host! Peter will be in the Forum on Monday, February 15th, from 7:00 - 8:00 pm EST. If you are unable to be online during the live session, you can post your questions in the sticky post. Peter will answer those questions during the live session on February 15th. You can view Peter's answers to your questions as well as what happened during the live session in the session thread.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! Please let us know if there is a topic that you'd like to have as an AMA and we'll look for a host!

  • Dessert Pizza - Bananas

    A favorite dessert pizza with my family and friends is one I made up using a caramel sauce, bananas, and chopped pecans. It is very simple. Spread caramel sauce thinly (I have used a caramel-pear sauce from Target - the Archer Farms label - although I haven't been able to find it recently) over the dough. Place banana slices on next. I slice them about 1/4" thick or so. Then chop some pecans, and sprinkle those on top of the banana slices. Sometimes, I'll drizzle a little more caramel sauce on top, but it probably isn't necessary. Just bake the pizza in a normal fashion. When the dough is done, the toppings will be perfect.

    The caramel sauce does become runny, so leave a little room around the edge of the pizza when you spread it.

    Sounds tasty! When we do dessert pizzas, we tend to bake the crust and let it cool, put the toppings on then back into the oven to heat it all up. This helps prevent the ultra runniness of some substances (caramel being one of them)

    I love dessert!
    My oven (for now):

      Any thing with carmel... I am in. I recently saw one with red berries and nuts that also sounded really good.

        Thanks for the tip. Depending on the topping, baking the crust first sounds like a good idea. It is fun to surprise guests with a dessert pizza. It usually is there first experience with that type of pizza.

          I take a leftover dough ball and shape it like a loaf of bread. I also make it thicker than a regular pizza. I cook it then slice it in 1/2 long ways. I spread nutella and place bananas and strawberries on top and put back in the oven to just melt the nutella. Cut up and sprinkle powdered sugar over it. Yummy!!
