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!

    I still need to apply the stucco finish on the dome and the block stand but the oven is operational as of last Saturday. I cooked 8 pizzas, but I'm still learning, I had several issues with the first 4, mostly because I wasn't paying close enough attention - I charred them badly , but the dog was in heaven, and she took up station right next to me, anticipating the next burnt offering.

    I did manage acceptable pizzas after the first four. But I'm not discourage. The dog and I are prepared to continue to practice, practice, practice.

    The next big step is the patio area around the oven

    Excellent. I like the tilework, and the way the counter falls into the oven on the side. Nice.

    I posted this idea just a minute ago, but my bet is that you are going to get really good at making great pizza -- really fast. And then, all Rover can do is watch. You have a great oven, and you are going to use better ingredients than any pizzeria you can go to. That's the perfect pizza recipe.

    Get the oven to 750F. Have a good fire putting flame at least to the center of the dome. Turn the pizza once. And you're done in 2-3 minutes.

    Our dogs lick the pizza peels when I forget and set the peel blade-side down.
