Welcome from Peter
Hi Pizza Quest Members and All Others too,
This area of the Forno Bravo Forum is dedicated to Pizza Quest related matters, including questions and answers, sharing of ideas, tips, tricks, leads for tools and ingredients, best pizza finds, and on and on. I may jump in only from time to time, so if anyone poses a technical question, whether about dough or pizza technique, please pose it to the group, not just to me. If any reader has a suggestion or response to that question, feel free to share it. If I see any misinformation or bad advice, I'll try to address it, but I can't promise that I'll be on top of everything--I'll be focused primarily on developing new copy for the Pizza Quest website and won't be able to be the so-called "Answer Man," though I'll try my best to offer ideas when I can. But I'm also confident that the cumulative wisdom of our community will be the most helpful of all, so let's keep sharing.
The main rules of this Forum are the same as for Forums in general: no bashing, no foul language, and a general tone of civility. We're all in this together and are building a community of like-minded pizza freaks and lovers of artisanship, so let's demonstrate that in our communications. I look forward to seeing where it all leads and expect to learn as much from you as you hope to learn from me. Onward....

Welcome, Mr. Reinhart.

This venture should prove to be interesting, educational and fun for all of us.

And welcome aboard Peter.
We have around 175 members that have contributed to the forum from "Down Under" and as an ex educator, we will all learn something through this new endevour. Some more than others.
I for one look forward to every one's input.

Welcome Peter your arrival here has certainly upped the ante on the board. This is kind of like a Master Class now - members beavering away .. with you [virtually] looking over our shoulders ;-)... Fantastic...

Saw your first video and really liked it. It was well made and got me thinking how to be more seasonable and how to get my son who likes gardening (and like to cook and eat) to think more about from "vine to pizza!"

Re: Welcome from Peter
If I can use the words "simple" and "dough" in the same sentence. Could someone direct me to a simple dough recipe. I have not quite grasped the whole concept of percentages of hydration etc. Cups and teaspoons please

5 cups bread flour
1/4 oz ADY yeast (one small package)
1 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon sugar
3-3 1/2 cups water

Put the yeast the sugar and 1 cup of warm water in a container, mix and let proof for 10 minutes.

Add the salt to the yeast water, stir and pour into the flour along with 2 more cups water. Hand mix and add water as needed until the dough starts to pull away from the edges. It will still be very wet. Let it rise in a warm place for an hour or so to double.

Dump it out on a heavily floured table and fold it 7 times, form into a ball, divide into 6 parts (for 12" pies), ball and it is ready to be used after another hour or 4 rise, or put it into the fridge for up to a week.

You can't get much simpler than that.

Copied, pasted, printed and ready to go cook. To bad I have to work all day.

Thanks "T" this looks pretty "goof proof"
