A Pizza Geeks Hello - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



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!

  • A Pizza Geeks Hello

    Hi all. I have been reading posts for some time now and gleaning all I can. I have been making pizzas for a long time. Growing up in NY I was spoiled with what I thought was the best pizza in the world and set out to recreate it. The journey began with different recipes over the last couple years with little success. Finally I stumbled of Jeff's site which lead me to true Neoplolitan pizza. Over the last two years I have gotten much more serious *with it all and currently have 3 pizza ovens in my garage. I started with a simple gas bakers pride deck oven and am currently running a Marsal MB-60. With full 2" thick stones it is a beast. I also have a Toastmaster 3 deck and a digital Rinaldi Superforni deck I've got with hood system brought over from Italy. My long term goal is to sell the ovens I have now and to purchase a WFO for as authentic a neopolitan pizza as I can get.

    Why not build your own pizza oven? You can buy that dream pizza oven from the fornobravo store, or, you can make your own using the free fornobravo plans. Lots of help available here as you plan and build. It is a good feeling to make your own. When you get your new the way you want it, you can always sell your other ovens on craigslist.

    If you are thinking about building a brick oven, my advice is Here.
    Our One Meter Pompeii Oven album is here.
    An album showing our Thermal Breaks is Here.

    I try to learn from my mistakes, and from yours when you give me a heads up.
