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!

  • The Woodlands (North Houston)

    I am staying there a few days for business, can anyone recommended a WFO pizza joint near there? I would like to compare my pizzas with that of a "pro" and maybe pick their brain a little.

    There is Grimaldi's coal fired pizza at the Waterway. Also at the waterway (across the street) is Goose's Acre pub which has wood fired pizza. That's all I can think of - pizza choices here aren't very good.

        Feedback on Grimaldis...not going to be positive I'm afraid.

        We waited for 45 minutes, checked with the hostess and she had "mistakenly" skipped us twice. So I decided, effit, I'll just get a pie to go, so they sent me to the server taking care of the br's food and placed my order, guess what, that was only a 35 minute wait.
        After all that I thought to myself "self, the pizza will be worth it, hang in there".
        BUT the pizza was NOT worth it! the cheese was fake, plasticky crap, the dough was gross and the pie was just ...bland. the only good thing was the price was affordable. A large pie was like $16 bucks for a large. To summarize, I wouldn't go back and my pizza is waaay better. :-)

          Sorry to hear that. I didn't mean to imply either of my suggestions were good, just that they were the only wood/ coal fired pizza places I knew of. I haven't tried Grimaldi's and I'm not sure I will. Restaruants on the Waterway tend to be overpriced, corporate places. Since I wrote I've heard of a new place in the area that everyone says is "the best" - it's called Crust. Not sure if it's wood fired or not. Hope your visit was good otherwise.

            Oh no problem, thanks for the info, I'm glad we went. We had a good time there, the area is really nice and the weather was great, had a cool breeze blowing all evening, wife enjoyed the evening.

            cheers.
