Pizzeria Paradiso, Georgetown D.C. - 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!

  • Pizzeria Paradiso, Georgetown D.C.

    I'm going on record: two big thumbs down on the pizza at this place. What a disappointment.
    I had the di Mare, Boy had the special which was pepperoni (or some other meat I don't recall)/pineapple.
    I'm pretty sure they don't make their own dough. It was weird and crackery on the outside and had zero flavor and no chew whatsoever...distinctly mass produced and processed seeming and definitely NOT WFO worthy. Also not worth the lovely ingredients it held. We left all of the overly fat cornices on the plate which would never happen at Casa Splatgirl nor at our favorite WFO restaurant. On the bright side, the panzanella appetizer was super tasty and the olives for an amuse bouche are a nice touch. And the killer key lime-coconut bar I got next door at Dean and Deluca for dessert rocked.

    Made me sad I didn't go with my other WFO option, Radius. At the very least, they would have gotten points for having their pies named after all our favorite motorcycle brands.

    Agreed, I was underwhelmed the last time I was there and haven't been back.

    If you're still in town, I highly recommend 2 Amy's (my favorite WFO restaurant in DC) or Il Canala. Haven't tried Radius.
