Neapolitan Oven - 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!

  • Neapolitan Oven

    I haven't documented my build here, but I thought you guys who haven't seen it elsewhere might like to see my home built Neapolitan oven in it's current state. The finishing touches like the broken tile mosaic it will be getting are going to wait until spring, but at this point with the stucco on I think you can tell what I am going for. I know it is very different then what most people here build, but I'm thrilled with it, I hope it is the highly refined pizza cooking machine I think it is.

    Hi Shuboyje,

    I just saw your build on the PizzaMaking forum. That is one of the most interesting designs I've ever seen. I really like the hybrid cast/brick idea.

    Nice job!

      Thanks Ken. I really think the castings for the door and vent is the only way to go for this style of oven. The traditional materials aren't available here, importing them would cost a ton, and I'm still not sure they are a better option. I'm actually positive they aren't but don't want to say that until she has some pizzas under her belt.
