Two Interesting Pizzas - 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!

  • Two Interesting Pizzas

    Last night we made 14 pizzas just experimenting with different combinations. Of course the pies with homemade pesto were a hit as were the ones with home grown heirloom tomatoes (canned, frozen or dried). But the biggest hit had to be the sweet potato pizza. It was simply olive oil, chopped garlic, thinly sliced uncooked sweet potato and asiago cheeze. D Double Delicious! Another hit was the pear pizza. It was olive oil, sliced over-ripe pear and bleu cheeze sprinkled very lightly with cinnamon. Everyone went home stuffed to the rafters. Man I love my brick oven.

    Hey Craig, I was intrigued enough by your post - we had WFO pesto pizza two weeks ago, which is my favorite so far... and then I saw you're located 12 miles from Snowbird. I grew up 13 miles from Snowbird, right off Wasatch Blvd. I'm a Brighton HS alum. Small world.

    You getting any snow this year?

      Actually its a record low year and we might get a new license plate slogan: "Greatest Manmade Snow on Earth."

        I was intrigued by your "Sweet potato pie" and we tried it last night. I wanted a little color and bought both a sweet potato and a yam. My wife suggested using the mandoline and we used it to thinly slice the sweet potato, yam, and the garlic. I just laid out the slices on the dough, sprinkled crumbled Asiago over them, and drizzled a little EVOO over the pie. I was prepping the oven for bread and so this pizza was baked at about 550 ...not the "proper" temp for pizza, but it was just for us and simply a taste test...

        Pretty happy with it and will definitely be putting this in our regular suggested toppings list. (We made these as little appetizers and cut each one into 4 pieces...we're not really into big, perfectly round pizza shapes-more into great flavors. By the way, we reheated one of these little pies later during the bread bake for our neighbor and it was still pretty good!)

        Thanks for a great idea! Also looking forward to trying your pear/bleu cheese combo soon.

          Today we cooked pizzas again and had to experiment further with the sweet potato pie. Ingredients: Olive oil, minced garlic, fresh rosemary, thinly sliced uncooked sweet potato, unspiced pork sausage, Mozzarella and a small amount of Goat and fresh grated Parmesan cheeze. Delicious.

          Also this evening I cooked my first ever sourdough bread and have to say it was one of the best loaves of bread I've ever had. Amazing crust, light and airy crumb, and a flavor like I've never had. Much different than the sourdoughs I've had in restaurants. Everyone loved it. The starter was the potato flake and sugar variety I started two weeks ago. Never again yeast bread.
