Boulder, CO; not enough time - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



New Forno Bravo Forum Feature

Forno Bravo Forum Community,

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.

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.

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!

  • Boulder, CO; not enough time

    I got stuck in Boulder last weekend due to the storm in MN. The only good thing was it afforded me a chance to try pizza. Apparently it's a mecca for WFO pizza.

    Pizzeria Basta
    Excellent food (using local and seasonal when possible) and atmosphere. They are doing other entrees in the WFO. (Roasted chicken was great!)
    Big restaurant. May have been the best pizza I've ever had )in the short time I've been paying more attention.) It was like a thin piece of bread with toppings... very good from the first bite. Almost had 2, as the Margherita was on the happy hour list.. only $5!!
    Pizzeria Locale
    Thy try to keep it authentic as they don't cut your pie at all.
    Bop Pizzeria
    They had something called a Mezza Luna (half calzone-half pizza). The calzone had a nice ricotta with Italian pepperoni in it.

    A couple more that I didn't make it too..
    Pizzeria De Lupo (on Arapahoe)
    The Mediterranean (on Walnut)
    Trattoria on Pearl (on Pearl)

    I think there's a couple in Denver and another in Louisville (or Lafayette) too.
    My oven (for now):

    Nice going, Terry! Did you take pictures? You covered a lot of ground in that short time. I wish I had thought of that. We dropped anchor at the first cool bar and the rest is just a foggy memory. Something about Laudisio's then eating a Scotch egg at some pub type joint then a very cool sports bar. The last morning was a decadent chocolate cupcake with bacon.
    And... oh yeah... there were a lot of mobile ovens in there...somewhere.

      I didn't talk a lot of pics, but I got some of the pizza.

      This was the Mezza Luna.

          If you're in Boulder you must go to the Mountain Sun Pub and Brewery. They don't have pizza, but there beers are brewed on site, there are no televisions anywhere, and the staff is amazing.
