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!

    Pizza Facts

    National Pizza Month is October. We began National Pizza Month in 1987.

    The people of America eat around 350 slices of pizza each second, or 100 acres per day.

    Each year, pizza is a $30 billion industry.

    In the U.S., there are about 61,269 pizza parlors
    Everyone in the United States eats about 23 lbs., or 46 slices, every year.

    Each year in the United States, 3 billion pizzas are sold.

    In America, the most popular ethnic food is Italian.

    Children ages 3-11 prefer pizza over all other foods for lunch and dinner, according to a recent Gallup Poll.

    36 percent of all pizza orders want their pizza topping pepperoni.

    We consume around 251,770,000 pounds of pepperonis every year.

    A few popular pizzas toppings are:

    Mushrooms, Extra cheese, Sausage, Green Pepper, and Onion. In the list of most popular pizza toppings in America, the last one is
    anchovies. New gourmet pizza toppings have rapidly became popular.Some of those toppings include: Chicken, Oysters,
    Crayfish, Dandelions, Sprouts, Eggplant, Cajun Shrimp, Artichoke Hearts, Venison, Duck, Canadian-Style Bacon and Tuna. Pratically
    every kind of pizza topping has been tried by pizza chefs, some of those toppings being peanut butter and jelly, bacon and eggs, and
    mashed potatoes.

    Americans prefer meat toppings to veggie toppings by a ratio of 62 to 100. women order twice as much vegatable toppings than men.
    Some popular pizza toppings in Japan are squid and Mayo Jaga (mayonaise, potato and bacon).
    In India they like pickled ginger, minced mutton and tofu. The people of Brazil prefer green peas for their topping. Russians serve pizza covered in mockba (a mix of sardines, tuna, mackeral, salmon and onions.)
