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!

  • Pesto Time and Stuffed Crust!

    We wanted to try something new this past weekend so we made fresh basil pesto. If you have never made it, it's a 5-minute no-brainer with a food processor (a blender will work too!).

    We used a "blister pack" of fresh basil from grocery store (we had fresh basil in the backyard until last week's freeze).

    If you want to give it a whirl, Google "Basil Pesto". Plenty of recipes. It's essentially a puree of basil, garlic, grated parmesan, pine nuts and olive oil. What's not to like?!

    The pictured pizza is mozz, onion and pesto. MMMMM-Good!

    My 11 daughter wanted stuff-crust pizza. I guess we've made too many trips to Pizza Hut . I took fresh mozzarella and cut it into long, thing strips that we rolled inside the outer crust before adding the toppings. It worked out really well (and WAY better than Pizza Hut).

    The tomatoe sauce looks great. What did you use for it? Also was the cheese home made?

      Brifro,

      The sauce is a very exclusive item in the Italian section of our grocery. It's called "Ragu Olive Oil & Garlic Pasta Sauce"

      Make my own cheese? I'm a city boy! We usually keep a 10 lb bag of grated Mozzarella from Sam's Club in the fridge for the kid's pizzas.
