First Pita! - 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!

    WooHoo! First attempt at pita bread and they not only did they come out good, they PUFFED without hesitation! Wow the oven was around 550F and these puppies didn't have a choice but to puff! Got the lamb marinating and ready for some Tuscon grilling! These ovens are fantastic! (Last pic I used a flash and it made the hot coals look cool, they are not cool. temp was around 550F for entire process.)

    Pita Bread

    Oven temp 500 to 600F
    450 grams bread flour
    300 grams H2O
    2 teaspoons instant dry yeast
    2 tablespoons Olive Oil

    mixed flour & water and let autoylse (rest) for 20 minutes
    Then added rest of ingredients and used ka mixer on speed #1 for a 6 min. knead, 5 min. rest another 6min. knead.
    Transferred into an oiled bowl and let it rise for 90 minutes.
    Put onto a well floured board and cut into 8 pieces
    Rolled each piece into a ball and let rest covered with a cloth for 20 minutes.
    Then rolled them out with a rolling pin to 1/8 - 1/4 inch thick and popped them into the oven. The first one I did solo, the rest I put in three at a time with out a problem. Once they puff in oven (aprox. 2-3 minutes) turn over and brown them as much as you like to taste.

    Happy Eating!
