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!

  • First pizzas from my Fuera Pizza Oven

    Really happy with the outcomes from my first pizza cook in the Fuera oven.

    The first few pizzas were the best - And they went fast. (too fast for pics - which is a pity as they were the best looking of the pies.).

    Crust on the bottom was really nice and thin yet crisp but not burnt.

    I actually ran out of sauce for the bottom pizza (so Im not that stingy normally).

    I used "el cheapo copy Mozzarella" on the top one (as popper Mozzarella is hugely expensive down here 1kg cheapo = $10. 125 gms of real Mozz $14).

    I was pretty happy with the results - it browned slightly in a speckle, and Im ok with serving that up to guest. (I will save the real stuff for me and the wife)

    Tank,

    You're suppose to serve the good stuff to your guest, not keep it for your self. When I visit I'll bring my own topping, since I've been warned.

      You may want to consider making your own fresh mozzarella from milk, it is not that difficult to do and can be Salted or controlled as to moisture content and density quite easily. Besides how much more fresh can you get it if you make it yourself.

      4 liters of milk yields about .5 kg cheese.

          Here is a fairly well documented recipe.

          Making Fresh Mozzarella! | The Pioneer Woman Cooks | Ree Drummond

          I like to add a scant .5 tsp salt to 8 oz curd and use the microwave to heat it prior to stretching. I also make up about 6 - 8 gallons of milk into curd and freeze the curd into 8 Oz blocks - ziplock bags. Then when we want fresh mozz. I pull out a single bag defrost. It on the counter wrapped in paper towel to remove extra moisture and then use the microwave method to turn it into cheese.

              One other thing.

              After heating and stretching place on a piece of stretch wrap and fold up the corners and then twist into a ball. Place in fridge for about an hour and you will have a nice piece of cheese.

              The size of the pieces you wrap up can vary in size and shape but direct to stretch wrap works great. As opposed to the cold salt water bath
