Morel, Asparagus, & Leek Pizza

May 29, 2019

Special thanks to Greg Higgins, who installed a Professionale 120 at his home in Oregon, for this dough and pizza recipe. He shares his Forno Bravo oven creations on his Facebook page, Pizza Monday. Notes on Greg’s Pizza Napoletana Dough: This is my favorite pizza dough using “00” pizza flour. It’s based on a classic Neapolitan dough ratio. We typically mix the dough around noon on Pizza Monday.  After an... Read More

Wood Fired Apricot Pizza

Sep 22, 2015

Tart, creamy, sharp, savory, and sweet … just a few of my favorite things. Keeping with the summer season, this recipe highlights the sweet ripeness of apricots combined with the tart creaminess of goat cheese.  Add savory chicken meat and a sharp pop of pesto, and you have a complete feast with just one pizza. Until next week, feast well. - Chef Bart Read More

Prosciutto, Pesto, Radish & Romanesco Pie

Jul 06, 2015

I am back to pizza making this week, inspired by lesser-used, non-traditional toppings. I am also breaking the golden rule of not overloading the pizza with toppings. Romanesco broccoli or simply Romanesco plays the starring role in this vegetable-driven prosciutto concoction. So what is Romanesco? Credit to the Community Table Website for the best description I’ve come across: “Romanesco appears to be part psychedelic broccoli, part alien life form.” Technically,... Read More

Andouille Sausage And Pesto Pizza

Mar 30, 2015

Andouille sausage originated in France and was brought to the US by German immigrants who settled in Louisiana. This smoked pork sausage is a staple of creole cooking and makes a great topping for pizza. If making your own sausage sounds like too much, one of my favorite versions that is readily available is D’Artagnan’s Andouille-Cajun style sausage. The sausage adds an intense kick of smoke and spicy paprika that... Read More

Caesar Salad Pizza

Gotta give credit to my daughter and her affinity for Caesar salad for this recipe. Credit also goes to my son for grabbing the camera and documenting it for all to see. I would never claim credit for inviting such a combination but it certainly was a great reminder of a quick down and easy topping for a flavorful family favorite. Until next week, feast well. – Chef Bart Read More

Pizza Party

A pizza party … a recipe

Dec 06, 2014

A few nights ago, I had the F&B team over for pizza after a long day of strategic planning. Being all foodies, we were excited to all throw our hats into the cooking ring with the Forno Bravo Wood Fired Oven. Unfortunately, it was a cold, wintery mix kind of night in the mid-Atlantic, but nothing a large market umbrella couldn’t handle. The evening was wonderful, full of laughter, stories, camaraderie,...
