Woodfire Style Pizza and Sourdough Flour Mix - 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!

  • Woodfire Style Pizza and Sourdough Flour Mix

    Anyone in Oz tried these new products from Allied Mills: Woodfire Style Pizza Mix and Sourdough Pizza Mix?

    Available in 12.5 kg bags and selling for about $21.

    Woodfire Style Pizza Mix

    Sourdough Pizza Mix

    They also have the standard:

    Pizza Flour

    I am nearing the end of a 25kg bag of Weston Milling pizza flour so need some suggestions for a new bag of white stuff...

    This mix has been specially developed to produce traditional woodfire-style thin pizza bases with a subtle smokey flavour.
    I'd really want to see a list of ingredients before buying: I suppose fake smoke flavor is OK in moderation, but I suspect it's full of sugars and oils.

      Yes, good point... I have requested the data sheets from Allied Mills.

      The reference to "mix" as opposed to "flour" is probably the key distinguishing point in the description. They do make a pizza flour as well so that is probably the one to go for as it will allow for a more traditional end product.

      Interesting though that they are venturing into this new area - possibly to try to break into the burgeoning home baking market of pizza stones, BBQ pizzas and pizza making machines. I am curious to taste these new products though, but 12.5 kg is a lot of pizzas to "taste" - particularly if they don't taste any good!!

        Just had a chat to the local rep for these products and he confirmed that they are mixes, that is, they contain flavouring agents and salt so just yeast and water required.

        It seems that they are aiming for the home oven baking market and for the people who just want to bake a quick pizza that provides reasonable results. Good idea for a "no fuss" option.
