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!

  • Favorite Pizza Toppings

    A few weeks ago I had a wood fired pizza it was very nice, no tomato or mozzarella, just Prosciutto lightly stewed Pear and Gorgonzola.

    Do you have a favorite topping?

    Re: Favorite Pizza Toppings

    I haven't built my oven yet, but have been making homemade pizza for years. (after reading the wood fired manual I realized I have a lot to learn).

    Anyway our family favorite is our "Seafood Pizza" - made one tonight:

    Homemade Pesto sauce
    Shrimp and imitation crab meat
    Red onions
    Fresh garlic slices
    MozzaCheese and sometime a little Asiago

        Diced tomatoes, Mozzeralla, fresh basil. The original is almost always the best.

          Re: Favorite Pizza Toppings

          Although I love most anything on pizza; from shrooms to peppers to goat cheese to any pork, beef, or veal product, onions, or a simple drizzle of EVO with a little garlic and "spice concoction".
          I have to side with CS. There is just something special about good fresh tomatoes (San Marzano), fresh mozzarella, and basil leaves I just snipped out back, heck you can't beat those 3 items just on a plate with a good balsamic. MMMMMMMMMMM

            Re: Favorite Pizza Toppings

            My current favourite is:
            tomato sauce on first, then Anchovy fillets, capsicum & mozarella

            Cheese Kransky is nice instead of anchovies

            Build #1

            Build #2 (Current)

                  Its so hard to stop at a few. I make my own garlic powder (see my profile) so I always load it up with garlic.

                  I also like onions, 'shrooms and peperoni.

                    doesn't matter the topping if it is not prepared properly. raw mushrooms and bell peppers on the pizza is quick and unsavory . like onions . like some cheese require different baking temperature .
                    just because it is a favorite topping , does not mean it will taste well on any pizza. i can present the most tasty toppings and make the worst pizza .

                      Re: Favorite Pizza Toppings

                      my favorite has been the same for a while now, and simple: olive oil, diced tomatoes, basil and prosciutto. a little mozz on there is good, but not even necessary.

                        I think this is where we need to be once our ovens are up and going, toppings on a 90 second pizza should be simple put tasty, as posted some topping don't have time to cook.
                        I found roasted tomato a lite sprinkle of soft cheese fresh garlic and roasted eggplant a great combo.
                        So what is your great combination, some one must hiding a great secret, lets hear it.

                          Re: Favorite Pizza Toppings

                          I find the traditional margharita (sp?) toppings dashed with olive oil after it is cooked is the best, but I am not too happy with the amount of water from the tomatoes after the pie is cooked. What is a fix for this?

                            I deseed, rinse and pat dry then chop, or for slices I make them as thin as possible and pat dry. Speaking of that, I have started brining all of my fresh vegetables for a couple of hours and that really helps. I do not like excess moisture on my pies (or grease, but that is a different issue).

                              I use canned San Marzanos, run them through the medium blade on my food mill, then through a fine strainer twice. Gets nearly all the water out. The downside - you see just how much water (waste) there is. Each can probably only generates 50% of its original volume.
