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!

  • Pizza...trying new dough and sauce

    I still haven't applied the finishing plaster to my oven, but I wanted to give it another test drive. I've been experimenting with new dough and sauce, so it was time to give it all a try. This was my first time using Caputo 00 flour, and a much more simple sauce. I still have a lot to learn going from a kitchen oven to the WFO, but overall, I was very pleased with the results.

    I let the oven preheat for about 2.5 hours. Had a steady temp inside the dome hovering around 900 degrees F and about 740 degrees F on the floor.

    This is some of the best pizza I've ever made, so I know I'm on the right track. Can't wait to do it again already!

      Looks good mostly. Would look better if the pics were a bit smaller so we could see and read the whole lot.

      It looks like you are on the right track with your dough though.

        agree with you Steve .....I don't get why pictures are placed in posts. Its much easier to open the thumbnails than place pictures in the middle of the text makes it so much more difficult to get a feel for a build.

          G'day
          I don't see what you guys are saying? The view I'm getting is those pics are a perfect size they fill the screen perfectly without losing a view on the sides like a lot of pics do sometimes.
          Mooveebuff from the pic of the sliced pizza looks like you have it about right! That near on perfect in fact. One thing I learnt and re learnt, once you have got a good recipes going, if you going to change anything just do one little tiny change at a time otherwise the whole thing goes to custard real fast. Like I said re learnt ....again and again

            I think it depends on your screen resolution...

            What I find works best is to attach the images with the paper clip and insert the thumbnails inline in the doc. keeps it nice and neat across any type of device

              Must have something to do with the technology Dave.

                    Did another cook to test out new dough. I used about 50% more yeast than I was using and I got the oven temperature up higher to see if I could get the puffy crust I've been searching for. Still not quite perfect, but vastly improved over the results I've been getting. I think I'm finally starting to get the hang of the oven!

                      And receive we did! That looks very tasty. I doubt that there is an end to the pursuit of excellence in pizza or baking. You would have to be happy with that effort and if it tasted as good as it looks then I would be too.

                      I think the secret is tiny tweeks because once you get close the slightest change to one element of the process may be the thing that makes it but two slight changes and who knows which did what!

                      You are obviously on the right track.
                      Cheers ......... Steve

                        Re: Pizza...trying new dough and sauce

                        I use Peter Reinhardts dough recipe....overnight with a 1/4 cup of Olive oil. I also go with a fuller fill on the Tablespoon of yeast to give it some pump.

                        I go with 7-8 oz pieces of dough and make 5 pizzas instead of 6 per batch.

                        It turns out really really good.

                        Post your dough recipe if you care to share.
                        Thanks in advance.
                        How are you doing your sauce?

                        I often cook with wine, sometimes I even add it to the food...

                          Always make sure you use a scale to measure all your ingredients correctly. The majority of the best pizza recipes measure ingredients in weight, not volume. Based on the type of crust you want, you need to pick the right flour.
                          All-purpose flour: great for deep-dish and Sicilian pizza crusts. If this is the only flour you have in the house, you can also use it for thin crust, Neapolitan-style pizzas, and New York-style. Keep in mind, using this flour can make it difficult to stretch out. One of the best brands to use is King Arthur.

                            To add to this,
                            I have been buying Antimo Coputo Flour from Amazon - It comes in 1000G bags
                            1 package is used for one recipe.

                            Makes about 5 -6 Pizza's depending on your desired size.
                            Here is the recipe in Weight. Also I eliminated using the Olive Oil and like the taste better without it.

                            Overnight ferment
                            1000 Grams Antimo Coputo 00 Flour
                            650 Grams Water
                            20 Grams Salt
                            6 Grams Yeast

                            Good luck!
