Why Did Forno Bravo Start Offering Pre-Cured Ovens?

Sep 28, 2016

All refractory ovens, whether commercial grade refractory pizza ovens like Forno Bravo, or hand crafted brick ovens like those imported from Italy or made by masons require curing. Why?

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.

Herb Roasted Chicken

Jan 04, 2016

They do as... Read More
