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!

  • Best Pizzerias in Naples

    A couple of members have asked for a good list of authentic Naples pizzerias to visit on vacation. Here goes with my recommendations. If anyone has other pizzerias they would recommend, please add them, and we will make this a sticky posting. I have talkeld with some folks who have done the pizza pilgrimage and after a while they all kind of blurr together. We mix in food with pizza, and that seems to work. Even the kids have had enough pizza after a while.

    Ciro a Mergellina: A really nice restaurant with great pizza. Good seaside location. Try to seafood pasta. Via Mergellina 21 (the Lungomare); tel. (081) 681-780.

    Ciro a Santa Brigida. Owned by Antonio Pace, one of the founders of the VPN Association. You might meet him. Off the Via Toledo, one of the main shopping streets and the main N-S street. Via Santa Brigida 71; tel. (081) 552-4072.

    Pizzeria Bellini. Try the whole baked fish for two, with a Margherita as an appetizer. In Piazza Bellini, at Via Costantinopoli (just inside Port Alba); tel. (081) 458-774.

    Da Michele: Via Cesare Sersale 1/3; tel. (081) 5539204.

    Trianon: It's always packed. Via P. Colletta 46; (081) 5539426.

    Pizzeria Brandi: It lays claim to having invented the Margherita. Salita S. Anna di Palazzo; (081) 416928.

    Di Matteo: Via dei Tribunali 94; tel. (081) 455262.

      Thanks for the tip -- I will look it up. I am going to be there in a couple of weeks, and will be meeting with the folks at Caputo, the pizzaiolo training school, etc. More to come on that.

          We ate at Pizzeria Lombardi - it was fantastic. Its been a few years - the house specialty was a layer of crust with ricotta and ham , like a calzone , with another layer of crust on top with a neoplitan pizza on top. Was the best pizza I've ever had.

            I haven't been there, but I read somewhere that in 1738 the Antica Pizzeria Port' Alba was selling pizzas on the street, as did every other pizza vender. In1830 they moved into a an actual building with tables and chairs. This is regarded as the first pizzeria. According to the article, they still sell pizza from the same location. Not sure about the food, but historically it might be a cool place to check out.

              There's also a really good Michele's in Bagnoli (West side of Naples) which does one of the best I've ever had. And a fun place called Il Tucano in Baia (bit of drive, the west side of Naples/Pozzuoli) but if you'd heading out that way you can't go wrong: the local Campi Flegrei wines (chilled) are a perfect accompaniment as well. Pretty much most pizzas you have in a Naples pizzeria will be the best you have, anyway!

              I'd also recommend Da Tonino in downtown naples - run by a real character and his wife, it's a tiny restaurant but a very authentic piece of real Neopolitan culture. Also, Casolare di Tobia in Bacoli - an agrituristico restaurant that does slow food. On the lip of a volcanic crater, everything they serve in the restaurant has been farmed by them within a mile of the place. Hard to find but well, well worth a visit. Oh, and for seafood, O' Valione in Pozzouli has some of the best you're likey to find (IMO, of course!).
