Forno Bravo Introduces e-Book that Shows Homeowners How to Build Backyard Italian Pizza Oven

Complete Set of Building Plans Available for Free Download; Free On-Line Support Group

March 21, 2007. Windsor, CA. Forno Bravo, LLC, a leading provider of Italian-made pizza ovens for pizzerias, restaurants and homeowners, today announced a new e-Book that shows homeowners how to build a wood-fired, Italian brick pizza oven in their home or garden. The plans for the Pompeii Oven™ are available for free download from the Forno Bravo web site, and include 70 pages with over 100 drawings and photographs and a complete materials list, that show the homeowner how to build an authentic wood-fired brick oven using standard materials found at Home Depot, Lowes, and other building material stores. The plans are called the Pompeii Oven after the brick ovens uncovered in ancient Pompeii. Other Forno Bravo e-Books, also available for free download, show how to bake bread, pizza and roasts in a wood-fired oven.

Hundreds of the Pompeii Oven have been built all over the world using advice found on the Forno Bravo web site, including ovens in the U.S., Holland, Belgium, the Philippines, Brazil, Thailand, Japan, Britain, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Sweden, and the Virgin Islands. By packaging the plans and the experiences of other builders into a single, easy-to-use e-book, the Pompeii Oven plans make is possible for just about anyone to enjoy authentic wood-fired cooking and Italian crisp-crust pizza. The Pompeii Oven plans are supported by an on-line community user group.

"The Pompeii Oven plans and all the postings by so many wonderful people enabled me to complete my oven without stress and lots of enjoyment,’ wrote one builder from Washington. ’Forno Bravo is a wonderful site to learn about building a wood-fired oven and making both bread and pizza. I’ve got the best of both worlds!"

"I really appreciate the Pompeii Oven plans and Forno Bravo hosting the support forum, said a second builder in Colorado. ’I am so happy with my oven. We are finally coming into spring and summer weather, and we had our first outdoor pizza party yesterday It was great. I cooked 18 pizza, 3 loaves of Pugliese bread, then a Zuni-cafe style chicken with warm bread salad. I was going to put a pot roast in this morning before work, but the oven was still 350ºF! So I told my wife to wait until later in the day. I am so happy I built the Pompeii Oven – this thing is great."

"There is a lot of interest in brick ovens, wood-fired cooking and Italian pizza,’ said James Bairey, president of Forno Bravo. ’One of the problems is that before we started Forno Bravo, there was very little information to be found. While there is a vast amount of knowledge on these topics, most of it is in Italian – and a majority of it is not even written down. With the Pompeii Oven plans and our e-Books on wood-fired cooking and baking, we are bringing an authentic Italian brick oven experience to the English language."
