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!

  • Pizza Dough Disaster?

    We have finally completed our oven and are starting to try new recipes. I tried the forno bravo pizza dough recipe posted on the recipe section a few times. I used a bread machine to mix it and it really made it easy. The fist two times it turned out perfect. It was easy to stretch, quite thin and worked great. Then I tried it another time. It was so dry I had to throw it away. Thinking I measured something wrong I tried again. It was better, but still dry and it didn't seem to rise. I checked the yeast and it was fine. I think it is because the weather (humidity) may be different now? My husband thinks it's because I used the bread machine. Any ideas?

    Problem Solved. Just wanted to let you know what happened incase you have the same problem. It was the flour! Who would have thought. We tried SEVERAL times to get that nice puffy stretchy dough. No luck. Then I tried some new flour. Still Caputo 00, but one I recently purchased. Worked like a charm. Then I looked up on the web, and even unopened flour only lasts a few months! I never would have guessed.
