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!

  • Pizza ingredient list and interesting combinations

    I thought I'd initiate a potential shopping list....

    When we pizza party, I love to just make combination pizzas and put them out for people to try...so what do you buy?

    Every pizza seems to disappear and if there is any extra it's soon munched on as desert.

    What's on your shopping list?

    Sauces:

    for the sauses we use traditional homemade tomato or pesto sauces so that sometimes directs what type of toppings.

    We've also used a refried bean spread and made taco pizza with lettuce, onions, taco meat, grated cheddar, salsa, etc. Pretty good.

    I have also had a pretty good Polish pizza....polish sausage, sauerkraut and cheese...also very good.....but can't remember what sauce might have been on it?? Anyone do those>

          Okay, so that's my list of options to consider when going shopping.

          I do agree with being careful about not overloading or overpowering
          ....but sometimes get carried away too!

          what other items do you buy/try?

          And what are some of your popular combinations?

          Good eating!

            Portobella mushrooms - cooked on grill, then sliced for the pies

            Poblano peppers - blackened on grill, steamed in bag, peeled and sliced (same with red peppers)

            Chicken - season like fajitas, grill and slice

            Shrimp - big ones (10-14) - marinated/seasoned cajun style, thrown in hot cast iron skillit that is pizza hot

            Arugula

              Some of the pizzas I ate in Italy last year had fresh arugula on top. Just piled on, then they cut the pizza. I've done it at home too-prosciutto and arugula, and then a drizzle of best olive oil....
