Call for Pizza Ingredients
 
We are collecting a group of imported pizza ingredients that we are going to provide through the Forno Bravo web site. Here is what we have found so far:

Caputo Pizza Flour
San Marzano tomatoes
EVOO
Italian anchovies in olive oil (glass jar) -- excellent
Italian tuna in olive oil (glass jar) -- excellent
Salt cured capers -- excellent
Sicilian oregano on the branch
Pesto

Is there anything else that you are using that you would recommend to a friend for the perfect gourmet pizza (excluding products that need refrigeration)?

Let me know.

Where's the Cheese?

I would love to do cheese, but we aren't ready to handle refrigerated items yet. Give me a little time. :-)

If we could find a great supplier who would drop ship directly, that would be good.

My research so far has yielded a domestic mozzarella company that charges more for shipping than the cheese, so-so domestic at Costco, a pretty good domestic at Trader Joe's and the occassional imported Mozzarella di Bufala at Joe's (which is good), and an imported Mozzarella at a cheese shop in Healdsburg, which is good, but pricey.

Our daughers are funny. They roll their eyes when we buy domestic mozzarella, and keep reminding us that it isn't "real".

Frankie,

I see you are in NorCal, with what looks like a Scott oven. Where are you located? We're in Healdsburg.

Why not make your own? It may not be "real" since you can't get the water buffalo milk, but it's extremely easy (takes about 30 minutes), TONS of fun (especially for kids), and darned GOOD! :)

I can dig up a reference if you're interested.

Hey James,

I do work in Lathrop, I sell Pepperoni!

But I live in Eastern, Contra Costa County....

james 11-09-2005 11:26 AM

Tell us more. Do you use your own pepperoni on your pizzas? Do you sell it over the Internet?

How good is it???

could you elaborate? a thread telling how to home make mozzeralla sounds like a good reference to me!
