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!

  • Perth Australia - My first Pizza Oven

    Well, after some very heavy solo lifting and many many barrows of cement, vermiculite, pearlite, rebar and sand we finally have our oven.
    Milestones were the foundation, slab and dome lift.
    A very satisfying build, the Pizza's and roasts are magnificent. Trying to keep the temperature constant while trying to pump out 10 Pizza's has been a challenge but keeping the flame going seems to do the trick. First three Pizza's about 90-120 seconds each, therafter 180 - 300 seconds for the rest. Floor temperature stays constant throughout the cook up so my insulation has worked well ! Now I just need to make adecent door for the baking.
    Thanks for agreat forum.

    Nice pictures except for the bloke posing next to the oven.
    Where did you get the materials from? Did you also build the pergola yourself?


    Looks good.

    I love watching my crust rise and change colour in my WFO.

      Yep, Pergola was built as a project with the kids, also after never having worked with wood,,, meant to only be up for two summers but 11 years and some very bad storms later its still standing and solid as the day it was built.

      Materials for most of the oven came from a great small company here in Bedford - Perth called "Gourmet Pizza Ovens", www.woodfiredpizzaoven.com.au very friendly people who are easy to deal with and provide lots of info & help. The flue came from Mediteranean Pizzas in Fremantle - Perth. The base/foundation made from limestone blocks and I poured the slab using a company called Concretetaxi who come and mix up/charge for exactly what you need to make the slab. The vermivulite and pearlite came from a hydroponic place in Canning Vale -Perth. The refractory cement came from Sila in Canning Vale - Perth.

      Had a couple of great Pizza's last night, Seafood supreme and a special meatlovers with antipasto veggies.
      I love this oven !

      Regards Fritz
