How to Make Homemade Bread in a Brick Oven

Dough:
To make bread dough, you’ll need:

  • 1 teaspoon active-dry yeast
  • 3/4 cup lukewarm water (not hot)
  • 2 cups high gluten  flour, or 00 Flour Italian Milled
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 tablespoon extra-virgin  olive oil

Make dough:

  1. Stir together yeast, 1 tablespoon flour, and 1/4 cup warm water in a large bowl and let stand until surface appears creamy, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add  flour,  water, salt, and oil and stir until smooth. Stir in enough flour  for dough to begin to pull away from the side of the bowl. (Dough will be slightly wet.)
  3. Knead dough  on a floured surface, lightly flouring when dough becomes too sticky,  work the dough until smooth, soft, and elastic, about 8 minutes.
  4. For best results use the dough the next day, it makes for a nicer airy dough. Roll the dough into a small loaf shape. Cover with some flour and then put in dough box to let rise for about 2 hours , until double in size. When it’s ready place the dough on the pizza peel. Use a knife to split the top length wise about a 1/3 an inch deep . Pour a small amount of olive oil in split (or butter ) Place bread in the oven be sure that you only have embers glowing lightly, no flame is needed for the Bread to bake . Turn bread as needed when done let it cool down before cutting!

  • A big thank you to scot and his team! We were in the market for a pizza oven upgrade . After looking around for a few months I stumbled onto scots company, picked up the phone dialed the number and spoke to scot, he is very passionate about his company and customer service, after we spoke I had no doubt I wanted to purchase an oven from him. Upon arrival I was really surprised how sturdy the build is! Well insulated to retain heat for hours, and really pleasing to the eye. Overall my experience with the oven and scot has been nothing short of pleasant.

  • I bought the extra large family oven and use it for commercial purposes for my business. These ovens hold up! For the price you cannot beat the quality. I have used the oven daily for the last 2 years and it’s amazing! Great product. If I ever need replacement parts or advice on the oven Scott the owner is always there. Great guy!

  • I did a lot of research before buying my Forno Bello Oven. I found my Forno Bello to be the best oven and the biggest bang for the buck. The quality of the oven is excellent and it's stainless steel stand allows it to roll easily when you want it to. The pizza peels and accessories store well in the front of the oven and the Rose Wood pizza peel is wonderful. The most important part of this oven is the support provided by Scot. He is always willing to help with his advice as well as his cooking videos which will give you a good foundation for using your oven. I could not be happier... you will be too.

  • Let me start by saying I never write reviews. This is different. I found Forno Bello online. I spoke to Scot Who was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. I placed the order for the family xl. When I received the pizza oven I was completely blown away. The quality of the oven is beyond anything else that I found and I looked everywhere. It was extremely easy to start the fire, up to temperature in no more than 20 minutes. We had it up to around 850 degrees in no time and you could still touch the outside. Insulation is huge with pizza ovens. I have had two parties since I received the oven. I live in the New Haven area where people really love pizza. The guests that I had could not believe how good the pizza was. I can’t say enough. Also scot followed up with me. It is not just a great pizza oven but a great experience as well. I will send some more pics as I get them. Thank you again.
