Butterscotch Sticky Buns

Apr 19, 2019

Chef Bart’s Butterscotch Sticky Buns (before glazing) I say when you have a craving, feed it! I was digging through the ol’ box of recipes and stumbled across this glorious breakfast sin. While reading through the ingredients, my mouth started to water, and I just had to see how it worked in the Forno Bravo oven. Grab your cast-iron skillet, or similar baking pan, your scotch whiskey, and your sense... Read More

Potato Bread – Buns and Loaves

Feb 18, 2019

Back in 2014, one of our Wood Fired Forum members from Ottowa Valley, Canada came up with a delicious recipe for Potato Bread that we wanted to share with the larger community. Potato Bread generally has a heartier flavor than some other types of hearth bread. This recipe uses a combination of flours, oats, and potatoes for a one of a kind result! Contributor “Fornax Hominus” wrote in his post: “I started making potato bread about... Read More

Jalapeno and Pecan Pesto Pizza

Oct 16, 2018

Thanks to Kenneth Kingswell of Strega Nonas Oven mobile catering in Gainesville, FL for sending in this recipe! This is a great pesto recipe for people who are lactose intolerant or are vegan.  There is no dairy in this recipe whatsoever.  It’s a great addition to bruschetta, pizza, eggs, fish, and chicken.  Give it a try!  I’ve also made this with almonds & pistachios with great results as well. Jalapeno & Pecan... Read More

Eid Bread (aka Wooden Mold Bread)

Sep 06, 2018

Thank you to home chef, Ahmad Zeabi, for sharing this special holiday bread recipe with us! In this recipe, we are traveling to the Middle East. Ahmad explains: In Horan (Daraa), in the far south of Syria, folks used to make this special bread in the Fitr and Adha Eids; the biggest annual celebrations in the local culture, hence the name. Families would customize their wooden molds. Originally, they looked at... Read More

Maple Dry-Rub Brisket Tortillas

Sep 06, 2018

Karsten Nordenhof, Wood Fired Community Member and guest home chef, submitted a fun Mexican-American style recipe for our 2018 Summer Recipe Contest. She reports: “After building our Pompeii oven last year, what began as a culinary journey to explore the unlimited options of a wood fired oven, is now a Sunday family tradition. It’s been lots of fun cooking again! After one visit to our favorite Mexican restaurant, I got inspired... Read More

Soft Pretzel

Oktoberfest Wood Fired Pretzels

Sep 05, 2018

Served with stone ground mustard or a dip of smooth cheese sauce, who doesn’t love old world, soft German pretzels! This recipe is perfect for Oktoberfest and the fall season! We received it courtesy of guest chef, Anthony LaRocco, of Anthony’s Rustic Crust. He and his wife Debbie, run a mobile wood fired pizza concessionaire in Florida. As with most baking, measuring by weight is more accurate and yields more consistent results... Read More

The Pig & The Fig – Makes one 13-inch pizza; may be doubled or tripled

Oct 04, 2016

It’s been my recurring dream and ambition to pair pork with fresh figs, and this colorful, seasonal pizza is one of my favorite ways to do so. Figs are in fact one of our most seasonal fruits or vegetables, and in many parts of the country, September is the best time to find them. So grab your figs quickly and get to work making my awesome 48-Hour dough for this... Read More

Ricotta and White Anchovy Flatbread with Preserved Meyer Lemon and Fresh Rosemary

Sep 09, 2016

In my one-woman campaign to pull red-sauce-aficionadoes kicking and screaming outside the pizza-box, here I offer a mostly-white “take” on flatbread (using my amazing 72-hour dough, of course) with a decided kick of salty, sour, and herbal notes. White anchovies bear as little resemblance to standard anchovies as burrata cheese to aged Parmiggiano: They’re both good, in their place, but sooo not interchangeable. Make the effort to get some of... Read More

Leek Jam, Meyer Lemon, Anchovy, Black Olive and Dill Flatbread

Jul 14, 2016

In keeping with my desire to cook outside of the box when it comes to flatbreads, here is a real flavor-palooza of a pie, that is (yes, Virginia) actually cheese-free! The leek jam does take a little time, but the result is worth it, and I encourage you to make double or triple the recipe, then freeze it in smaller containers so that when the urge strikes, you’ll be ready...
