A Girl and Her Dragon – Marketing Part I

Dec 01, 2016

This blog is part of a two-part series on how I’ve approached marketing A Girl and Her Dragon Pizza. I apologize for the delay; I’m in the middle of applying to colleges so things have been a bit hectic! I am not what you would call a “natural marketer.” As you can imagine, this small deficiency presents a bit of a problem in a business that requires near constant promotion... Read More

A Girl and Her Dragon – Don’t Panic

Oct 04, 2016

No matter how long you’ve been catering, or how many times you’ve run through every part of the pizza making process, every once in a while you’re going to hit a snag and things are going to teeter on the edge of falling apart. I felt this keenly a couple of months ago, standing in front a fire that would not start, stupidly having let myself run out of kindling,... Read More

A Girl and Her Dragon – Beyond Pizza

Sep 07, 2016

You can cook more than just pizza in that oven of yours. I know, I know, sacrilege! It’s a pizza oven for a reason! Hear me out though. I’ve catered close to a dozen events this summer, from massive corporate parties to private birthday bashes, and a couple of times clients have asked us for something beyond the basic insert-your-toppings-here package. In response to their requests, I did a bit... Read More

A Girl and Her Dragon Building a Wood Oven Fire

A Girl and Her Dragon – She’s on Fire!

Jul 05, 2016

The bright side is that, as of the writing of this latest blog, I haven’t set anything on fire that I wasn’t supposed to. I am not going to lie; there have been a few close calls. Turns out burning cornstarch will adhere to a pizza peel and turn a 6-foot cooking implement into a temporary torch. Evidently supposedly dead coals can flare up when brought out of the oven...

A Girl and Her Dragon – Quest Night #2: The Re-Cheesening

May 19, 2016

Yes, I have gone to the dark side of cheesy (haha) blog titles. Last time it was an incomprehensible pun, this time it’s some sort of movie rip-off. The Re-Cheesening sounds like last year’s failed horror reboot, but hey, I like it. Humor aside, this was my second Quest night with the pizza oven, and it went amazingly! I learned from my mistakes last year, and got the fire up... Read More

Uncle KoKo’s Wood Fired Pizzeria Features Custom Tiled Napoli Pizza Oven

Apr 14, 2016

In the fall of 2015, Forno Bravo received an order for a Napoli commercial wood fired oven for a new pizzeria being opened in Belle Vernon, PA by Kodey Suomela.  Kodey requested to customize the tiling on the oven with not only the logo of the pizzeria, but also a tribute to his grandfather.  Here is Kodey’s story: “My grandfather and I have owned a gym now for 3 years....

Rolling Out the Dough

Mar 21, 2016

I spent longer than I’d like to admit thinking of halfway decent puns that involve the word “dough.” I’m not sure why, this post is a pretty straightforward recollection of how I found at the dough I use today. Well, to be honest, getting the dough wasn’t all too straightforward. I had to go through half a dozen contacts, two different companies (one twice), and some less-than ideal recipes. I... Read More

Bad Weather and Pizza Ovens

Feb 04, 2016

As a resident of California for the past 17 years, I believe that I can officially claim the title of spoiled summer child. As much as I would like to deny it, I simply can’t take the cold. A brisk breeze sends me running in search of a coat (much to my Virginian father’s amusement), and I adamantly believe that the best way to experience a snowstorm is inside one’s... Read More

Foundation Capital Summer Party (640x427)

A Girl and Her Dragon Summer Party

Dec 14, 2015

Last I wrote, we’d just wrapped up my first event, the Nueva School Quest night. Lots of people, lots of pizza, lots of fun (I know, I know, a bit clichéd, but very true!). Little did I know that that night was nothing in comparison to my next function: the Foundation Capital Summer party! Foundation Capital is the venture capital firm where my dad (Paul Holland) works. They do as... Read More
