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!

  • pizza flour in Australia

    I am wondering what type/brand of flour all you aussies have been using and where you get it from. I have been using one from Coles labled as pizza flour - lighthouse? brand but I sure there are better ones out there. Plus one i get the oven finished i am sure i am going to be buying in bigger than the 1kg bags i have been getting.

    a very good flour that I and a few others here use in Adelaide is one from Gaganis Brothers. It is Gaganis Special White flour and sells for around $12-13 per 12.5kh bag. Good value and great taste. See:

    Flour & Baking Needs

    I also have a 10Kg bag from Allied Mills called 'Pizza flour 36400' which is just as good but a little dearer.

    If you don't succeed the first time, try again and again until you get it right!

      Hi James,

      I have gotten some very good organic flour from these people:
      Organic Food Sydney, Natural Food & Health Food. Home delivery Australia wide
      They are in Sydney, they deliver. Only problem is to pick up your order it is at limited times or by arrangement.

      They also have a huge range of other products. Have a look at their website!

        Yes James, I bought a box of Lighthouse brand Bread & Pizza flour but have yet to use it. Will be cranking the oven up on Sunday so will have something to report thereafter on Lighthouse's performance. It is very pricey here BTW so it better be good!!

        In the past I have used the locally available "Bakers Flour" (Coles, Woolies etc) - comes in 9Kg bags. Results have been good, but I am keen to experiment with others. Not sure what other flour is available here in Perth, but I am heading out to do some shopping tomorrow to find out.

          Re: pizza flour in Australia

          Is this the correct Caputo Pizza flour: Flours and Breads | Mulino Caputo | Pizzeria Flour 25kg ??

          It looks different to the pics I have seen on the FB site.... but perhaps this is new branding or something??

            That's the stuff. 121USD? pricey stuff down there. Here's the same bag on the east coast of the US for 39usd:
            Caputo Pizzaria Flour #55
            I guess they figure that anyone who would pay three bucks for a firebrick would pay anything for the flour to cook on them.

              Makes me want to jump on a plane and head over there and get some. Will probably work out the same price in the end!!!

              I live in hope that a kind someone will pop up here and tell me that it IS available in Perth - at a good price too.....

                I use Weston Milling Milano Pizza Flour, which is distributed all around Australia. Unfortunately it is only stocked by major food distributors, and available in 2 sizes 12.5 kg and 25 kg bags.

                I managed to get the distributors to sell me a bag. $18.00 for 12.5 kg Very cheap considering the quality.

                It is the best flour I have used to date, and has 11.5% Gluten. The only downside is they close at 05:30 every morning......Yawn
