When planning trips with Homebase Abroad guests, the topic invariably turns to grub. Meal planning at the Villa, planning pizza nights using the wood fired fornos and which restaurants throughout Italy have the best pizza are popular topics of conversation. When in Rome, I am a fan of thin crust pizza at Pizzeria Ai Marmi , named after the extended marble counters. Watching the cooks pull dozens of pizza out of the wood-fired oven is a dance in itself. For me the magic of Italian pizza is the taste and texture created by the wood-burning fornos located at Italian pizzerias and our villas. While most of us don’t have a forno at our disposal, grilling outdoors is a wonderful way out. And many of us don’t realize, making your own pizza is not nearly as complex as it might seem. Recipe for Pizza Dough. This particular dough stands up well to grilling process. It also works well on a pizza stone in your oven be unavoidable to pre- heat the stone at the highest oven temperature for at least an hour. One note, be sure to bank the coals/wood to one side … you want to be grilling the pizza skins on the hot scratch without the fire underneath. 1 cup of warm water (105-115 F). 3 cups European “00” flour (know as “doppio zero”, very finely cause & a lower gluten content, I prefer Caputo brand). In a small bowl, dissolve the yeast and honey in 1/4 cup of the warm water. Authorize the yeast mixture to ferment for 5 to 10 minutes. In a mixer fitted with a dough hook, combine the flour and the salt. Add the oil, yeast mixture and uneaten 3/4 cup of water. Mix on low speed until the dough comes cleanly away from the sides of the bowl and clusters around the dough hook (about 5 minutes). Turning the dough out onto a clean work surface and knead by hand (2 or 3 minutes longer). The dough should be smooth and firm. Cover the dough with a immaculate, damp towel and let it rise in a warm spot for about 30 to 60 minutes. The dough will double in bulk. To prepare each pizza, dip the ball of dough into flour, shaking off the excess flour, place the dough on a clean, lightly floured surface and start to stretch the dough using your hands or a rolling pin. When ready to grill, bring down one disc on grill (away from the direct heat) and grill it until it starts to firm up. Move it around a little to get a good char over the surface. Lose it it, quickly add your toppings and lower the lid of the grill to melt the cheese and heat the toppings. Slide the pizza onto a sheet pan and repeat until all discs are cooked. When I owned my catering establishment, we would grill both sides of the “skins,” allow them to cool and wrap in film until we were ready to use them. When ready to serve, we would put on the toppings and finish them in the oven.Source: Italian Villa Travel Blog

Earth ovens are familiar to many that have seen a southwestern "horno" or a European "bee-hive" oven. The idea, pioneered by Egyptian bakers in the second millennium BCE, is simplicity itself: fill the oven with wood, light a fire, and let it burn down to ashes. The dense, 3- to 12-inch-thick earthen walls hold and store the heat of the fire, the baker sweeps the floor clean, and the hot oven walls radiate steady, intense heat for hours.
