Have you tried to make a deep dish pizza? - 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!

  • Have you tried to make a deep dish pizza?

    Just for a change of pace we were thinking of trying to make deep dish. So I figured a few of have tried (hopefully successfully). Any tips will be appreciated.

    Thanks, Mark

    As long as you throttle the oven temp down I don't see why it wouldn't work. I personally don't like it so I ahve never tried.

    Good Luck,

      Here's my thread on deep-dish. Dave W. gives some great pointers in it. Makes me hungry just thinking about it.

        Just seeing this now but thought I'd chime in. I've had excellent success making deep dish using my cast iron skillet. The crust gets really nice and crispy on the outside. Lube it up well with oil or shortening and then use enough dough so that you can drape it over the edges of the pan to start with, otherwise it's hard to keep it up the sides of the pan until you get it filled. Definitely don't want to have your oven too hot. I usually go for 350-400F.
