Shrinking Pizza - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



Photo Galleries are back! Instructions below.

Dear forum users,
Thank you for your patience with the Photo galleries. We've got your galleries online!
We have finished writing a custom script to migrate the PhotoPlog to vBulletin5’s albums.

Unfortunately V-Bulletin killed the "Photoplogs" in their software upgrade which was unforeseen and we're the first development group to have written a script for getting the galleries back... that said, it took some time to reverse engineer the code and get the albums to move over seamlessly!

Forum users will be able to access their “PhotoPlog” images through their user profile page by clicking on the “Media” tab.
They will also be able to browse other albums by going to the albums page. (On the forum site, there is a link in the black bar beside “Forums” to the albums.)

In order for users to create an album please follow the steps below.
1) Go to user profile page and click “Media”
2) Click Add Photos
3) Enter Photo Gallery Title in the first field
4) Click Upload or Select from Photo Album to add photos
5) Click Post
6) Once posted, the album will be created as a “Topic” on the albums page for the public to see. The topic title will be the “Photo Gallery Title” they created before uploading their photos.

To create this migration path we used vBulletin5’s default album structure. Unfortunately, it won’t work like the “PhotoPlog” but is an album/gallery component on the forum now.

  • Shrinking Pizza

    So I noticed this today when I was making pizza's there was a pretty big amount of shrinkage during baking. At first I thought it was the all purpose flour I used, but the Caputo showed the same thing.

    The funny thing was my daughter made a happy face pizza but it shrunk and the face seemed to be very mad that it was put into the oven.

    Mine shrink when I have sticking issues, and shaking them on and off the wood peel cause them to contract. If it's actually shrinking in the oven you may have too low hydration to your dough, which makes it more rubber-bandy.

      I thought it might have been an issue of resting time while forming the pie.

        You should, of course, get the pizza assembled and in the oven as quickly as possible. If your dough is dry enough to sit around for any period of time without sticking to the work surface, it's probably too dry.

        How about a quick overview of how you are making pizza: your dough formula, the size (weight and diameter) you're aiming for, and how much in the way of toppings you are using, and a brief description of your techniques. Otherwise, we're just making random comments.
