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 Pizza Dough

Mar 28, 2019

Sometimes, you just need a bit of dough for a small group and you don’t want to drag out a big mixer for the effort. There can also be something soothing about getting your hands into a ball of dough and working it to perfection. With these things in mind, Chef Leo Spizzirri, Master Instruttore, PFC, and Co-Founder of the North American Pizza and Culinary Academy developed this recipe for a simple,... 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

Black Truffle Smashed Potatoes

Feb 01, 2016

It’s not every day that I have a beautiful black truffle sitting in my refrigerator at home beckoning me to indulge in some form of “trufflie” deliciousness… Although it does happen now and then. Last time was a batch of simple but perfectly scrambled eggs smothered in shaved black truffle and a touch of creme fraiche for my beautiful bride “just because”. This time that truffle luck would fall upon... Read More

A Few of My Pizza Oven Favorites

Oct 26, 2015

A little more than a year has taught me a few things about pizza out of a Forno Bravo pizza oven.  To name just a few: the woods and the flavor of smoke, the fire and how to trust in the dome-licking flames, the illusion of controlling the dough, yeast, humidity and time, and of course the toppings–spicy, sweet, tart, bold, creamy, sharp and all delicious.  The most important lesson...

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
