Southwest Airlines Spirit Magazine - Pizza Cover - 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!

  • Southwest Airlines Spirit Magazine - Pizza Cover

    Don't know if anyone ever gets to fly Southwest Airlines, but their February cover story was all about Pizza...they had the top 10 places listed and described. Pizzeria Bianco was on the list. I forgot to grab a copy when I got off the plane - but I think ou can google Spirit Magazine and it may be online.

    Back issues of Spirit Mag. are available for $5.oo

    (M) I searched for the article on Pizza and found it to be available via the following URL at a cost of $5.oo:

      S.W. Airlines sent me the Pizza issue Magazine

      (M) Yesterday I got the Feb. edition of Spirit Mag. from SW Airlines for free and read the article. The "review" seems to be by just one person who writes well and admits to it's subjectivity. Most of the 10 places reviewed emphasize simplicity in toppings and the smoky unique flavor of a wood fired oven.

      (M) There were a few however that were described as being generous in their toppings. I'm among the "purists" so I'd lean toward an "official" Neapolitan pizza although I may use one extra ingredient. I would prefer tomato sauce, E.V.Olive Oil, Mozzarella with some additional stronger cheese such as Granna or a Reggiano Parmesan, Fresh Basil, and Garlic. It seems that pizza, in the U.S. at least, is an evolving "pastry" and that there is no "right" or "perfect" pizza. But for those of us who have built brick ovens, it seems appropriate that we at least try a pizza that emphasizes the virtues of a hearth baked crust and doesn't smother those delicate flavors with a heavy topping.

      (M) Since we all live in different corners of the U.S., and even the world, I won't quote the 10 specific references as it is unlikely that any one listing would be close to where you live.
