New Canaan ? CT ?

About an hour away from me. I work with a consulting company there from time to time. Very wealthy area. They'll be able to afford you, John.

That area of CT can definitely afford you.  I'm about an hour from there also.

Congratulations John. That was even better than I thought it would be from your earlier description. No wonder you got the calls... heck, I would've called you!

John,

That was really cool!  Maybe you should start autographing the pizza tools before you send them out! ;D

I played hell with it too.  Even after to disabled all of my protection.  Site appears to auto-refresh about every 3 minutes.

He's in video #3 about 1/2 way in.  And he is having a good day :)

Fantastic segment, John. You seem incredibly comfortable in front of a camera. Between that charisma and your pizzas, I think you're looking at a lot more than 2.5 minutes of fame  ;D

john, that was great!!! you are a natural and the set up and pies looked amazing. i hope the next time we get together in the city for a pie you are still driving and not being chauffeured by you private driver. sending the link to the monsignor, and the rest of my family they were very impressed with you and your passion for pizza. what are you adding to your pizza sauce, secret ingredients ?

John,

Very nice, indeed. But you earned it through all of your hard work, especially finding all of those secret ingredients ;D.

John you seemed to be a natural on camera.  Pies looked excellent as always, and setup was very professional looking.  If she would have interviewed me, I would have been like Ralph Kramden in the Chef of the Future episode of the Honeymooners. Great publicity and exposure for sure.

What a fun Party on Saturday.  and no Rain !!! This is first time since I strated I came home with 0! and I know why supposed to be 55 + a few kids ? how about I counted quick about 70 + adilts  25 kids did 55 pies in 2 hrs and headed  home. Told him "Im out !" I would have been glad to bring 20-30 more but I went on what he told me so I was out, and he could say nothing he gave me the number! Truth is I was a little pissed-  he felt horrible so $100 buck tip for each of my  crew. I had to mobilze anyway could have got at least anther 25-30 people billed for same event oh well at least I paid for the gas   ;) Had a new helper and the girl showed up in a tie ! too busy to get too many pizza shots which were coming out really sweet after the 2 hr heat up
Here was Set up On a nice flat concrete driveway where I backed in unhooked and set up right there. A real pleasure and easy out !
John
ps those are not my red and white flags owner wanted me to match his tent so hey whatever the customer wants ,actually looked kinda  cool !

You are the man John, very impressive. Bad situation when the client either accidentally or on purpose undercuts the head count by that much. Obviously not your fault at all that it ended up this way, unfortunately in the eyes of the guests it's always the caterers fault when he runs out of food, sad reality of our business. You should be very proud of what you have done with your business, which I am sure you are. Hope I can get to the point where you are in my business someday. Keep up the great work John, you truly are an inspiration.
