I'm Peter Reinhart! Ask Me Anything! Monday, February 15, 2016 7:00-8:00 pm EST

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.

Ask Me Anything New Forum Feature

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.

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!

  • Pizzaaaaaaahhhhhh!!!!!!

    Well - I'm a bit embarassed. I've been cutting bricks but have no oven. I am not ashamed to say I am a former Dominos employee - way back in my college daze. We were not allowed to throw pizza's. But, when no-one was watching.........

    Fast forward to today.

    We were tired of waiting. I researched recipes on the FB site and went to the grocery. Went hungry. The worst way to go. Huge grocrery bill.. but I digress.

    Made the dough per the recipe found here - Employed my underused bread machine to do the dirty work. Made two batches one wet and one less.

    I put several of my bricks in the oven and made a low tech pizza stone.
    550 degrees for an hour an a half

    Then - the best thing! The sauce! Used our forum for the sauce recipe. Oh Man! I used italian tomatoes and the red vinegar and the other stuff. I was not prepared for what I was about to taste! I can't wait to try the serial number tomatoes!!!!

    The neighbors - Sandra and Connie - gave me a pizza peel. We used that. First pizza stuck to the peel - had to roll it off and put flour under each edge. It survived and was a great pizza. But we forgot the olive oil on top in our haste.

    Second pizza - holy crap. Everything worked out. Olive oil and everything! Best pizza we've had since we had since the first one! We love this site. Crust was wonderful.

    Third pizza - gotta use up the dough - we made two batches! It did not come off the peel as well as I'd like but it made the picture! We took it over to Sandra and Connies! Sandra's mom was there. 97 years old. She asked if the crust was crunchy..... She loved it!

    All in all. A wonderful evening. Thanks to all!!!

    P.S. Used the rest of the dough to make flatbread. Man o Man! good stuff!
