Build Your Own $20 Outdoor Cob Pizza Oven | The Year of Mud I must admit, I’m a bit of a breadhead. Few things are as exciting to me as freshly baked bread with a dab of butter, or hot and greasy scallion pancakes, or fluffy and airy naan, or a pizza fresh from the hearth of a wood-fired cob oven. (That last one trumps all the others.) I thrive on bread. Earlier in the year, the idea of baking in the outdoors in a wood-fired oven became something of a romanticized (in every positive sense of the word) notion to me. So I picked up a copy of Kiko Denzer’s Build Your Own Earth Oven, a little gem of a book covering the construction of cob ovens from the ground up. How To Build an Outdoor Pizza Oven The Foundation With little more than some clay, sand, sawdust, brick, some recycled beer bottles and old cinder blocks, I had everything I needed to make my own oven. The Fire Brick Oven Hearth An insulating layer of beer bottles in a sawdust/clay mortar was assembled on top of the foundation in a ring of cob and beneath the firebrick hearth.

Leserwunsch: Pane Maggiore - Plötzblog - Selbst gutes Brot backenPlötzblog – Selbst gutes Brot backen Leserwunsch: Pane Maggiore Fast zeitgleich erreichten mich zwei Anfragen für Pane Maggiore, eine italienische Brotspezialität des Maggia-Tales. 2011 hatte ich bereits in zwei Anläufen ein Pane Valle Maggia gebacken, aber es hatte noch nicht soviel mit dem Original zu tun. Nun habe ich mich an eine Überarbeitung gemacht. Der Wasseranteil ist gestiegen, außerdem darf der Teig 8 Stunden im Kühlschrank verbringen.

Better Outdoor Pizza Oven Building Plans | The Year of Mud Learn how to build this outdoor oven in this new how-to Several years ago, I wrote about how to build (the now-infamous) $20 outdoor cob oven. That oven I built worked decently, produced a lot of delicious meals, and advanced my pizza baking fever to new heights. Since then, we’ve built several more outdoor pizza ovens, and each of them has been a great improvement upon the original.

This is a very achievable, low cost, and effective oven that will not cost you thousands of dollars to build. The Better Outdoor Pizza Oven Plans: Overview The oven I will propose and outline below is a highly insulated cob oven. The oven is no slouch in the baking department, either.

Pane Valle del Maggia Pane Valle del Maggia February 23, 2014 Several bakers on The Fresh Loaf have shown us their bakes of “Pane Maggiore.” This bread comes from the Swiss Canton of Ticino, which is the only Swiss Canton in which Italian is the predominant language. While the Ticino Canton has Lake Maggiore on its border, the name of the bread supposedly comes from the town of Maggia which is in the Maggia valley, named after the Maggia river which flows through it and enters Lake Maggiore between the towns of Ascona and Locarno. I was interested in how this bread came to be so popular among food bloggers. For your interest, here are some photos from Petra's blog of this bread as she bought it in it's place of origin: Pane Valle del Maggia. Pane Valle del Maggia crumb. After this bit of backtracking research, I ended up with four … or is it five? Josh’s approach used two levains, one fed with freshly-ground whole wheat flour and the other with white flour plus a touch of rye. Procedures Happy baking! David
