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!

  • Kids Pizza Party

    My twins asked me to throw them a pizza party and things went so well that I thought I would share how it went. The girls just turned 7 and they had 2 friends over, plus several siblings. The girls wanted everybody to make their own smiley face pizza.
    • I used 1kg of flour and the FB recipe, I created 180 gram balls to create 8 inch pizzas plus an extra 275 or so ball for an adult pizza.
    • I used 1/2 Bread 1/2 all purpose flour. I did not want to use my caputo in case one of kids wasted a ball. I hate to freak out on the kids and I know that is a sore point with me. This way I could relax!
    • I chopped up all the toppings including green pepper slices for mouths and mushrooms for ears or eyebrows, pepperoni for eyes etc. You get the idea... The kids did what they wanted.
    • As pizza time came near I formed each pizza and placed it on a piece of baking parchment and then on a cheap paper plate.
    • I gave them a demo and then helped spread the tomato thin. Then let them at it.
    • I used two pizza stones in my oven since I did not have WFO. I was able to fit about 3 pizza per stone. But it was tricky. The parchment helped here.
    • I put each baked pizza on a new paper plate, which got placed on the party plates. The party plates where then good for cake and ice cream.

    All in all it was a big hit! Happy kids, happy wife!

    Kids and smiley faces make great combos! Sounds like you entertained them well!

      How did that AP/bread flour crust work out? I find non-caputo crusts fight like rubber bands when you try to stretch them out. I make pitas out of ordinary flour, but i use a rolling pin on them.

        Well it did not have a nice light crispy crust like the caputo, but I did not have to fight it. Here is a picture of one pizza.

        I made an margarita adult pizza and put mortadella on it out of the oven.

          Because I have a WFO my older daughter thought it would be a good Idea to have a pizza party at a local WFO pizza place, (i wanted to smack her when I found out after) Although her thoughts were she didnt want to bother me to make pizza's for 12 kids,,, As we all know if were cooking in our oven we are happy, The kicker here is they charged her 13$ a kid plus drinks and tip... UGGGGGGGGGGG she now knows better for next year. You guys had a great idea and I have a pizza party booked for next year already...
