My first try at pizza, HUGE success! - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



Photo Galleries are back! Instructions below.

Dear forum users,
Thank you for your patience with the Photo galleries. We've got your galleries online!
We have finished writing a custom script to migrate the PhotoPlog to vBulletin5’s albums.

Unfortunately V-Bulletin killed the "Photoplogs" in their software upgrade which was unforeseen and we're the first development group to have written a script for getting the galleries back... that said, it took some time to reverse engineer the code and get the albums to move over seamlessly!

Forum users will be able to access their “PhotoPlog” images through their user profile page by clicking on the “Media” tab.
They will also be able to browse other albums by going to the albums page. (On the forum site, there is a link in the black bar beside “Forums” to the albums.)

In order for users to create an album please follow the steps below.
1) Go to user profile page and click “Media”
2) Click Add Photos
3) Enter Photo Gallery Title in the first field
4) Click Upload or Select from Photo Album to add photos
5) Click Post
6) Once posted, the album will be created as a “Topic” on the albums page for the public to see. The topic title will be the “Photo Gallery Title” they created before uploading their photos.

To create this migration path we used vBulletin5’s default album structure. Unfortunately, it won’t work like the “PhotoPlog” but is an album/gallery component on the forum now.

  • My first try at pizza, HUGE success!

    Well, after a curing fire program, today was the day for me to fire my oven up for real. Took about 45 mins for the dome to start going white, then about another 15 minutes for me to put my first pizza in.
    Getting it in in one piece wasn't nearly as difficult as I feared. And i seemed to manage not to burn any.
    Even gave a dessert one a try which was a huge hit with everyone.
    All in all a happy result.

    Well then, this is the first and the worst.
    It only gets better from here on Paul!


    Prevention is better than cure, - do it right the first time!

      Most pizza makers find that keeping the fire on the side lets you keep an eye on the pizza edge as it browns. It's also a little easier sweeping sideways than backwards.

        Putting the fire to the side will also help prevent shoving the pizza into the coals which has happened to at least one of us!

        The pizzas look good but I am intrigued by the whiteness of the dough and the browning on the edges. Your hearth appears to be either right on or a bit hot and/or your dome too cool. The photo showing the fire shows no flames so I will bet on the latter. You actually want flames so they can radiate down and brown/caramelize the top of the pizza and crust.

        A nice start...and, as Neill said, it will only get better!

          The pizza looks great, I can't wait and neither can my wife. Nice job Paul.

            Congratulations on getting it all up and running.

            If you're worried about getting the pizza of the peel try dusting the peel with rice flour.
