Calzone - to end the day... - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



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!

  • Calzone - to end the day...

    Had one dough left and decided to use up all odd toppings from the day's bake-off.

    heat it up for lunch tomorrow!
    Hint - use longer time an only medium in a microwave or your pastry crusts will turn to leather!

    Prevention is better than cure, - do it right the first time!

    The more I learn, the more I realise how little I know

      Yes - the microwave is a pain but that's all they have in the lunch room at work unfortunately. Tks for the tip - didn't know about the med setting.

      I always heat up next day pizza in the electric oven - on the pizza stone...

        Rossco, around here extra pizza skins often get turned into calzones at the end of the pizza baking.

        When cooled, I simply wrap the calzones in aluminum foil and keep in the fridge. I have found that for my tastes simply heating them in an open fry pan maintains the texture and keeps the crust from becoming either soggy or tough. Works better for me than reheating in an oven.
