Forno Bravo is one of the best pizza resources on the Internet

According to their website: "Forno Bravo imports and produces the world's finest wood-fired pizza ovens for the home and garden, caterers, bakeries and restaurants."

For me, the very best pizza comes out of a coal or wood fired oven. These ovens produce a very high heat so that your pizza cooks very quickly. Sure there is some preparation involved. You need to heat up the oven. but the result is well worth it.. 

So while, Forno Bravo is a great place to get a  pizza oven, they are also one of the very best pizza resources on the Internet.

I had the opportunity to speak with James the owner of Forno Bravo....

Here is what he told me about their ovens: "...We have a range of pizza oven types and sizes for the home owner, including pizza oven kits, real brick ovens, and fully assembled ovens.

Typically, residential pizza ovens are between 31" and 43" -- large enough to cook multiple pizza at a time, but still easy to manage and fast to heat up. Our ovens, tools and pizza ingredients are all made in Italy -- and they let the American pizza chef make world-class pizza at home."

Sure, Forno Bravo sells ovens, but they also give away free plans, if you are the do-it-yourself, kind of person.

If you are interested in building your own pizza oven you can get your free plans, at this link for the Pompeii Pizza Oven. 

I asked James how he got started: "I got into wood-fired ovens the same way pizza lovers got interested in making pizza -- I started with a pizza stone. After doing that for a while, I was ready for the next step. There were plans you could buy for building a brick bread oven, so I got a set and built the oven. It was great learning experience.

I went ahead and put one in our kitchen/great room, and I was hooked. Cooking in a wood-fired oven is one of life's real pleasures."

The website has also built up quite a community of pizza ethusiasts. They offer a pizza forum, where members of the community share ideas, problems and issues related to pizza and bread as well as pizza ovens.

There are sections of the site devoted to pizza tools, outdoor living and creating gourmet pizza. They offer resources to obtain Caputo flour and San Marzano tomatoes. Many pizza fanatics feel that pizza must be created with these high quality ingredients. I have used Caputo flour myself and can attest to great pizza results.

Here is a video of the Forno Bravo Pizza oven in action. They take you through the entire pizza making process:






Make pizza, be happy!
