Sweet Treats - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



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!

  • Sweet Treats

    After I made a dozen pizzas last night for a group of friends someone had the idea of making a desert pizza with smores. I usually cut fresh strawberries and drizzle icing over the top after the dough rises but the idea of a chocolate pizza had be pondering about the possibilities. My wife made a sweet dough with yeast and we began. We made the smores pizza with perfect browned marshmellows on top, milk chocolate that melted with grahm crackers on the base and they were excellent.

    However my wife loves her smores made with reeces peanut butter cups. So we bought a small bag of mini butter cups and put those on the dough with marshmellows. We then put a top piece of dough like you would for a pie and ruffled the edges closed almost like an apple pie crust. It came out like a chocolate peanut butter pie when you let it set a few minutes to solidfy a bit inside the closed crispy crust. It was probably the best desert I've ever had from the oven. I don't think I have any pictures b/c as soon as it hit the table it was gone shortly thereafter.

    That sounds pretty good. I do a chocolate pizza with nutella marscapone cheese and brown sugar. I normally use a standard pizza dough then spread the nutella all over the dough, then put a few blobs of cheese on and sprinkle with the brown sugar. Cook till the sugar starts to carmelize. It is one of my favorite desserts.
