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!
I've heard of this restaurant but have not been there yet. I've been to
Tutta Bella a couple of times. They have two sites in the Seattle area and are the first in the area to be recognized by the Neopolitan Pizza Gods. Great thin crust pizzas. Let us know how you like Via T's. Sounds like a visit is in order.

I haven't been there but I have been to Serious Pie in Seattle Tom Douglas Restaurants : Serious Pie
My wife and I thought the pizza was very good. I had the yukon gold pizza the wife had the Cheese pizza.
My wife and I were just out in Seattle for our son's wedding and we visited Via Tribunali. It's a wonderful space and we had a chance to sit and watch them prepare and bake their pizzas in a gorgeous, mosaic covered oven. Unfortunately it was very busy - one large birthday party accounted for about 1/4 of the customers - so it was too long of a wait.
We thought that the toppings were a little skimpy albeit tasty. The main comment that I have is that I like a nice crisp crust, so when I make pizza I let the pizza cool briefly on a wire rack to allow excess moisture to escape before cutting. At VT the pizza goes from the oven directly on plates and then are served uncut. So in my mind the crust, while tasty, was too limp.
I may be weird, I don't know - do others like a crisp crust?
