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!

  • First rising..

    I have 20 or more friends coming over for a PizzaFest late tomorrow arvo so I made the dough today to be well prepared.
    Ive made dough before but this first rising took me by surprise to say the least....
    I had the bucket only half full of dough expecting it to rise to the top only... then the glad wrap came out, and out as it just kept on rising.

    Cool! How did you manage that? Mine usually goes oven the edge and oozes all over the kitchen or fridge...

      I have no idea why it happened, I used the usual recipe of 500grams of flour, 2 teaspoons of dry yeast, 2 teaspoons of sugar, 1 teaspoon of salt and 2 cups of water.

      It just kept rising and rising, I half expected it to burst and fill the kitchen with sticky goo....

        Looks like you got your tea spoons mixed up with your tablespoons! (absolutely no offence intended)!. I have had a similar response when I put in a little more yeast than should have.
        The sugar will also increase the yeast activity so maybe cut that back a little especially for savoury bases rather than for sweets.
        All the best you your pizzathon.

          I used the same spoon for all measurements, I pretty sure I counted right.....

            Heres how the PizzaFest ended up..

            A great time was had by all, they all enjoyed making the pizzas for them selves.
            One guest brought a ready made shop bought pizza....
