Super Bowl Party - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



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!

  • Super Bowl Party

    I have a 42 inch oven and started using it late November so I'm still learning. We are have 12 o 14 people over to watch the football game. My wife is fixing salad and I'm going to fix pizza at half-time. Any advice to help me get all this done and not keep people waiting or your experience would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Teamwork. When we have a big summer party, I build the pies, my twenty-something son bakes and my wife cuts them. Designate some helpers and have a busy half-time!

      Obviously you should have everything pre-prepared and the fire lit.
      Stoke the fire at the 2 minute warning.
      Then, as Ken said, get several people to help make and bake.

      I love cooking with wine. Sometimes I even put it in the food.

        To minimize the hassle, we are buying pre-made pizzas. Our local guy, Bruggo's, does a damn good job in regard to the crust and toppings. Just slide it in and you get the WFO experience. When it's all said and done, the prep and cleaning takes the majority of time. Then again, I don't want to miss a second of Madonna. Seriously, the Super Bowl couldn't get Lady Gaga? Any woman that dresses in meat gets my vote.

            ended up making 6 pizza'a for about 11 people. This is the most pizza's I've cooked at one firing. Wife made New England Clam chowder (pats) and salad and I made New York Style Pizza (giants). I enlisted help to carry made pizza's into house. I didn't know it but they put them in oven to keep warm until all six were cooked. I think it made them a touch soggy. I wish they would have eaten them as they came in from the oven. Another mistake I made was placing most of the pizza's in the same spot in the oven. I think the heat in the floor at the spot I placed the pizza's was getting sapped of heat. Over all everyone enjoyed the food, drink and game. We were pulling for the Giants!
