Jeez, John, now you're thinking about selling fish, too?  ;D
No, he needs them to walk on so his feet won't get cold.  ;D

very nice John.
how cold that thing goes? will it hold the temp well unplugged when you have to make the trip from home to the party?

FYI will have the oven ready in about 6/8 weeks!

Hey John -
I just read all your information and I am wondering how is it going now ?  I am kind of in the same situation that you were in.  I have the money to buy something like what you show in the pictures and just start doing some weekend gigs but I am a little nervous to get started. 
Any advise or ideas you can pass on to me would be so appreciated.

Going Great !!I'm back!! Great to be making pizza again !  1st gig of 2013 today at a Paddle or some call it Platform Tennis tournament at the Brookside racquet  and swim club. What a gorgeous day !! absolutely perfect for making the dough as well.  Made dough Thursday 61%  early afternoon and it never saw the refriderator. Glad too see I didn't loose the touch.  Dough was spot on ! Manager of Amano was there ( plays at my club) and he was blown away by the set up and product !! the dough and set up are below

Haha, me too! Although I don't think, with my physique, I'd ever be able fool anyone into thinking I played tennis.

John, your pies are evolving a bit.  Shorter bake time than usual?

John, your pies do look great! Besides yourself,  how many people do you have with you for an event? I'm sure the size of the event plays a role. Keep up the good work!
Any fellow PM forum members up for crashng a Flirting With Fire party??  ;D

Very nice looking pies! It is very nice to keep the dough out of the fridge, here in houston temps are around 80 already......Where do you buy the ice cream? how do you serve it? I am thinking very seriously about to incorporate the dipping cabinet too.....thanks

John,

What's the largest number of people you've ever had at one of your events?

That group there looks like a nice (but hungry!) crowd size.

Nice to see someone is out there burnin up pizzas, still freezing and a foot of snow on the ground in Fargo. What % of yeast do you use for a two day rise like that?  Casey
