Pizza Plate - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



Photo Galleries are back! Instructions below.

Dear forum users,
Thank you for your patience with the Photo galleries. We've got your galleries online!
We have finished writing a custom script to migrate the PhotoPlog to vBulletin5’s albums.

Unfortunately V-Bulletin killed the "Photoplogs" in their software upgrade which was unforeseen and we're the first development group to have written a script for getting the galleries back... that said, it took some time to reverse engineer the code and get the albums to move over seamlessly!

Forum users will be able to access their “PhotoPlog” images through their user profile page by clicking on the “Media” tab.
They will also be able to browse other albums by going to the albums page. (On the forum site, there is a link in the black bar beside “Forums” to the albums.)

In order for users to create an album please follow the steps below.
1) Go to user profile page and click “Media”
2) Click Add Photos
3) Enter Photo Gallery Title in the first field
4) Click Upload or Select from Photo Album to add photos
5) Click Post
6) Once posted, the album will be created as a “Topic” on the albums page for the public to see. The topic title will be the “Photo Gallery Title” they created before uploading their photos.

To create this migration path we used vBulletin5’s default album structure. Unfortunately, it won’t work like the “PhotoPlog” but is an album/gallery component on the forum now.

  • Pizza Plate

    Hi Everyone, I have been following the forum of forno bravo for quiet some times as I'm building a pizzeria/cafe in Oakland, I thank you for all the tips I have been reading on this wonderful forum and hope that soon I will be able to share some of my experiences with my oven with you.
    my question is where can we find affordable pizza plates to use in a restaurant the pizzas being 12" diameter? I found some woodweaving plates 14" diameter at $1 per plate, but I feel that the use of resine and the plate getting dirty rather rapidly are not "organic" enough to go with pizza, I have the same for the aluminum pizza plate the idea of aluminium in my food is not really enjoyable, I might be picky and will fall back on one of these if I cannot find better choices.
    I welcome ideas and recommendation, thank you.

        What about using wooden cutting boards. Has the advantage of being rustic and tough while allowing cutting? Perhaps use a bigger one for delivering the pizza and smaller, thinner ones as plates?

          I don't think wooden cutting boards are going to get past the board of health, since every serving dish that goes to the customer table has to be high temp dishwashed on the way back. How about corrugated cardboard circles? I think I've seen those used at classy pizza places.

              wood is tough in the commercial kitchen. It doesnt hold up that well. The vertex plates and the Front of House plates you can cut right on and it will not damage or leave marks in the plate. Just make sure you are using a high quality wheel you can re-sharpen.
