Forgot to mention it was fun to see that Brooks "Pizzacommander" Jones (http://pizzacommander.blogspot.com/
) is now working at Paulie Gee's and helping with the pizza making. Paulie's son Derek "Del Boy" is taking on the roll of the fornaio and Michael was in town for a spell handling adding the ingredients that go on post bake (arugula, shaved pecorino, etc).
Because I was visiting friends and arrived later than I expected in NYC due to traffic, I had much less time than I had alloted to visit Paulie. For this reason, I decided to just eat and talk a bit without taking video and pics, etc.
I'll be back soon to get video footage, pics and ask Paulie and Brooks some questions about mixing, fermentation times and all that kinda stuff. --K
