Two Stone Baking - 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!

  • Two Stone Baking

    Well it had to happen sooner or later - I will travel to see a freind soon and we've talked about pizza so much they want to make pizza when I visit. For the first time in months, I'm going to have to make pizza the old fashioned way.....

    They have a bit more money than we do so I will have the oppurtunity to see how well a WOLF Oven works. It also looks like we will have 8 adults and 8 kids....

    So I want to try a two stone approach to feed that many folks before midnight. With my oven I wouldn't worry at all....

    Has anyone done this successfully and if so are there any tips to this?

    The plan is to complete two pizzas on peels and zip them on stones in the upper third of the oven. I think the stones are too large to go side by side so they will likely be on separate racks.

    Any insight to managing this indoor fest would be appreciated!!!

    Re: Two Stone Baking

    My only insight is to check the timing of the higher rack positions. I assume you normally place your stone on the bottom rack. This is the coolest location so that the crust gets done while the topping doesn't burn. I am also assuming you only have one stone at home.

    You can try higher rack positions with your stone, record the time, and compare identical pie at the bottom rack. You could then stagger the insertions at your friends' house. Or you could make different toppings for the upper racks than the lower racks -- more burn resistant?

    . . . idle thoughts. I've never tried since I only have one pizza stone.

      Give it lots of time. I have this memory of trying to make a number of pizzas for the family using our conventional oven, and I calculated everything completely wrong. We ate after midnight. :-)

      Also, calculate that the pizzas will take more time as the evening progresses.

      Pre-heat for a long time.
