Pizzeria Bianca Story - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



Photo Galleries are back! Instructions below.

Dear forum users,
Thank you for your patience with the Photo galleries. We've got your galleries online!
We have finished writing a custom script to migrate the PhotoPlog to vBulletin5’s albums.

Unfortunately V-Bulletin killed the "Photoplogs" in their software upgrade which was unforeseen and we're the first development group to have written a script for getting the galleries back... that said, it took some time to reverse engineer the code and get the albums to move over seamlessly!

Forum users will be able to access their “PhotoPlog” images through their user profile page by clicking on the “Media” tab.
They will also be able to browse other albums by going to the albums page. (On the forum site, there is a link in the black bar beside “Forums” to the albums.)

In order for users to create an album please follow the steps below.
1) Go to user profile page and click “Media”
2) Click Add Photos
3) Enter Photo Gallery Title in the first field
4) Click Upload or Select from Photo Album to add photos
5) Click Post
6) Once posted, the album will be created as a “Topic” on the albums page for the public to see. The topic title will be the “Photo Gallery Title” they created before uploading their photos.

To create this migration path we used vBulletin5’s default album structure. Unfortunately, it won’t work like the “PhotoPlog” but is an album/gallery component on the forum now.

  • Pizzeria Bianca Story

    My friend Adam told me this story about Pizzeria Bianca the other day -- so it's really good second hand information.

    He flew to Phoenix a few months ago just to eat there. Being a serious pizza fanatic, he called the day before in the middle of the afternoon when they were open. He got through to Marco, who is Chris' brother. Sounds like a great guy; he gave Adam tips on where to stay, where to go for drinks, etc. And warned him about the lines.

    It sounds like the Pizzeria is open from 5-10 five days a week, and Chris is there the whole time they are open and he makes every pizza. As they say in business, Marco runs the back office. It also sounds like Chris has been on TV quite a bit, and Oprah picked Pizzeria Bianca as the best pizza in the states. Is that right? (we need a fact checker).

    Adam got there at 3PM and was the first peron in line, and the second person arrived at 3:10PM. This was his third time to the restaurant and he had not gotten in the first two times, so he wasn't taking any chances this time. There is a Bar Bianco that serves wine to the folks in line, and it sounds like a festive atmosphere. They opened at 5PM, and the first tables filled up and pizzas flew out of the oven. When Adam left, the line was still there and the place was hopping. It sure sounds like a good business.

    This is same Adam who lives in Naples with friends for months at a stretch, so he knows his pizza -- and he thought it was great. Very reminiscent of Naples.

    Chris indeed makes every pizza himself (it's Bianco, not Bianca).

    Bianco's is an amazing place. My wife and I ate there monthly when we lived in Phoenix until August 2005. Chris is a very warm and friendly guy. He's always busy, but he'll always say hi across the counter.

    When I was there in December, I told him about my oven. His advice:

    "Keep burning them until you get it right."
