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!

  • Freezing Dough

    We have finally mastered the dough. One question, when is it proper to freeze it? Before or after it raises?

    Re: Freezing Dough

    I have successfully frozen dough. I use a 3 hour bulk rise, followed by dividing into 200 gram balls and a three day cold fermentation in individual plastic containers in the fridge. Anything I haven't used by the third or fourth day goes in the freezer in the same container. A couple three hours at room temperature gets the dough back to usable.

    I wouldn't store it for months, but so far that hasn't been a problem

        I just started using the pizza dough recipe from the FB site and was wondering about how long I could store the dough. From your experience it looks like keeping the dough in the ref for a few days is quite doable.

        From what I have gathered from this site, many folks are doing dough prep and overnight storage. What's the advantage to doing 3 days fermentation in the fridge vs overnight? It seemed to me that overnight fermentation was really for convenience.
