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!

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!

  • grilling your pizza?

    I've never really cooked my own pizza before, but I did it with my spouse the other night and had a great time doing it and turned out great. I then stumbled across a recipe where you grill the pizza. what do you think about grilling the pizza, I've never even really heard of it.

    let me know what you think.

    Re: grilling your pizza?

    Welcome aboard Richie,
    There is pizza on a pizza stone on a grill, and then there is pizza directly on the grill. There are some good discussions on the former in this group, including Villa Roma's re-engineered Weber with a gas burner. I've done it many times and can highly recommend it. The FB Store has a pizza stone designed for gas BBQs.

    I would be interested in hearing how you cook pizza directly on the grill.

      I had found the recipe on a random recipe site, but I'd have to look for it again. I'm busy today, so If i find it i'll post it later.

      Thanks for your quick response.

          Re: grilling your pizza?

          The method on the link is pretty much how I've been doing it for a few years now. I don't have my brick oven yet and none of the restaruants in my area with brick ovens do it very well, so this method is actually the best pie I can get. My friends and family agree, so it's not just me. Do it a few times and you'll start to refine your own method. It sounds wierd and you expect the dough to just slither right down through the grate. It doesn't. Cast iron grates work best. I've tried others and it just isn't the same. Good luck.

            Re: grilling your pizza?

            Very interesting. How does it compare with pizza stone pizza? I have always thought that the stone does a good job of making steam under the pizza dough, which helps make it crunchy.

            What does the base taste like?

            Also, does it work with nice fresh dough?

              thanks guys for the advice. I unfortunately don't have cast iron grates, I have stainless steel grates, do you think it'll be okay on that?

                I have grilled hundreds of pizzas on a variety of grates... and while I do like doing them on cast irons greates, I have had much success with stainless. You should be fine.

                  James:
                  Wish I had an answer about grate vs. stone for you. I've not done it with a stone. Started doing it right on the grate after seeing someone else do it.
                  Learnng one method that worked took long enough and my next learning curve wil be in a brick oven. Now if I could only find the time to build it.
