Original Matzoh Crust Pizza. - 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!

  • Original Matzoh Crust Pizza.

    hi every body i am back with this delicious pizza recipe


    Have you ever gone to a Pizza Restaurant and though their crust tasted like matzoh? The original pizza's were made from matzoh:
    When the Jews were leaving Egypt, they didn't have time to bake the bread. The bread was baked in the sun, and didn't leaven. Every year since, Jews are not suppose to eat leaven bread, for the days of Passover. Through the ages, the Jewish People have moved around a lot, still eating matzoh every Passover, finding ways to improve the taste, through the countries they are in, still staying within the Passover Laws.
    When the Jews were in Rome, again they were eating matzoh on Passover. Tomatoes and cheese were more abundant in Rome than in other countries. The Jews learned from the Romans how to make tomato sauce.

    During Passover one year while the Jews were in Rome, one Jewish woman got tired of just having their matzoh plain or with butter on it. She decided to put tomato sauce on it. She liked it but, it wasn't good enough. Next she decided to add garlic and onions and spices to the sauce, but it was still not good enough. Finally she decided to add cheese on top. Mozzarella was the cheapest one at the time, so she bough that. She put all the ingredients on the matzoh, and baked it in the ovens. She tasted it and really liked it. She gave this new concoction to her family and friends. They all liked it. It became very popular, and the new fast food for the time. The only thing it was only eaten for Passover, because that was the only time one could get matzoh. Everybody couldn't wait for Passover to eat this Jewish delicacy.

    Original Matzoh Crust Pizza.

    1 box matzoh
    1 (12 oz.) can tomato paste
    12 oz. water
    1 tbsp. Italian seasonings
    1 tbsp. basil
    1 tbsp. garlic powder
    1/4 c. minced onions, dried
    1 lb. Mozzarella cheese, shredded (cheese own option)
    Vegetables or meat of choice (pork came from the Romans)

    Mix the tomato paste sauce and water to the consistency preferred. Add the spices and minced onions. Lay out the matzohs on a greased cookie sheet. Probably need about 4 sheets. Lay out the sauce on the matzohs. Add cheese. Add vegetables and meat as desired. Bake at 450 degrees for 10 minutes. Serve

    Re: Original Matzoh Crust Pizza.

    This is ironic. I was actually looking into making matzoh in the oven. Has anyone done this?

    There are some recipes on the web, but none for a wood burning oven.
