Norma,

One of the reasons I finally joined the forum instead of lurking all the time was to congratulate you!!! I don't have a Facebook page but my wife does and, having the same friends, we kind of share it.  Quite some time ago she came to me and said "Who is this Norma and why is she showing up on our Facebook page?"  I showed her a few pictures of your pies and she said "Oh, yeah, ok.  I get it now." :drool:

    Norma, is the Market going to finally give you a better stand/stall?
Bob,

I don't think so.  When Fox 43 News called the office Tuesday I was called to the office by the market manager.  After I talked to the reporter I told the market manager I never will be able to keep up in my small space with only me making the pizzas.  He laughed.
This is one of those times I would like to hear the following conversation: Mr. Trump calls the Roots market manager.  "Hello, I hear you are giving my good friend, Norma, the first quadruple wide stall by the main entrance.  She is fantastic...just fantastic!"  ... oh your not?  Well I just bought Roots market yesterday, and "your fired!"  :-D

Pizzaposer,

Thanks so much for joining the forum to congratulate me!  I still don't know how I showed on your wife's facebook page if we aren't friends.  Did a friend of your wife's shared something on their facebook page that she saw?

Dave,

Your post really made me chuckle.  :-D The manager at market has treated me special since I won.  I talked to him yesterday morning and said I had the chance to go to the Pizza Expo in Vegas with mostly everything paid by other places.  I told the market manager that I wasn't sure if I wanted to go and miss market so soon again.  He told me go and have fun.  He also said market will still be there for me when I get back.

No. I "liked" Norma's Pizza at Roots Country Market and Auction and your posts show up on our page.  I can see that it is a great place and I envy your being able to sell the fantastic pies you make but I wish you had somewhere where you could do it more frequently....preferably closer to my house than Lancaster.

Pizzaposer,

I understand why my posts show up on your page now.  Thanks for explaining!   Root's Market is a great place to shop for almost anything.

Almost a month late.....just saw this thread.

Incredible job Norma.  Your hard work and extreme dedication has paid off to the fullest.  Congrats!!!

I live in Pitt now and will certainly have to make the drive to Roots to taste one of your delicious pies.  Only 4.5hrs away.

If anyone that sent me congrats on this thread is interested, the same dough, cheese, sauce and other toppings used at the Caputo Cup did not make a good pizza when tried the second time.  The results are below and they were not good:  :-[
