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!

  • Schiacciata - Sweet Pizza

    I found this very simple recipe some while ago and have tested it successfully of a few occasions. Unlike this recipe, I just use the standard pizza dough (no sugar etc) but of course you can just mod it to your particular taste. It is pretty sweet with the caramelised sugar. Great served with vanilla ice cream or cream (or both)...

    Ingredients
    500g Pizza Dough
    500g Grapes (I use red and white for visual impact)
    125g Raw or Brown Sugar

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Method

    Wash grapes, drain and toss with half the sugar. You can use the grapes whole if you don't mind the crunchiness but if it worries you, either de-seed them or use the seedless variety. Prepare a pizza pan or similar flat tray and brush with a little light oil.

    Divide the dough into two and roll out the first of two base shapes for what will become a grape sandwich. Don't worry about making a perfect circle - rough enough is good enough. Place onto oiled pan.

    Dot some of the grapes over the base leaving some space between them and sprinkle on a little more sugar.

    Roll the second base shape and place it over the first layer pushing down around the edge to seal it.

    Add more of the grapes, pushing them in the valleys formed by the grapes underneath, and sprinkle with the remainder of the sugar.

    Bake in a hot oven (or wood fired oven if you have one) at 200șC for about 40 minutes.

    Mmmmh, that sounds really good!

    You could probably use other fruit too, right? I imagine figs would taste great, or blackberries... what else? I'm finding it hard to think of fresh fruit here in the middle of Winter.
