Thanks, Norma! I had somebody ask for white pizza, made with feta cheese. I didn't have any. My wife bought some yesterday, & it's not cheap. I searched around & I see that you occasionally tinker with white pizza. I'm still in the tinkering mode, but my 14" cheese pizza, for 9.99, is becoming a staple around here(thanks to this forum). Bob.

crazybob,

White pizzas are great in my opinion.  :)  Here is a thread where different forum members gave me ideas for white pizzas.  My favorite is a Buffalo White Pizza with white chicken and bacon.  If you want to do a forum search there are a lot of ideas for white pizzas here.

http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,10213.msg89532.html#msg89532   

Tinkering is good and that way you will know what you and your customers will like.

Steve (Ev) and I had some unexpected visitors today.  I couldnít believe it was crazybob and his wife, Darlene.  They are the nicest people and we talked a lot about pizza making and their Drive-In Theatre.  Steve and I sure had a great time talking to them.

This is a picture of Bob and Darlene and the pizza we made for them.  I did take some videos of them playing with the dough and when I upload them I will post them here.

What a great couple.

These are the two videos of crazybob and Darlene playing around with the dough.  Sorry, I had my camera turned the wrong way, when I took these videos.  Also my memory stick kept running out of space, so I had to keep deleting pictures.  These videos would have been longer if I hadnít ran out of space.

Darlene


crazybob and Darlene were a lot of fun to talk to.  It is amazing to hear all what can go into running a drive-in.

Wow, what a special treat for you Norma!  Isn't this forum wonderful?  Bringing us together even more than we might have expected. :)

Looks like Bob and Darlene have gained a fair amount of experience already.

Are you going to be able to return the favor and visit their drive-in?
Let them eat pizza.

Mad_Ernie,

Yes, this was a special treat for Steve and me.  This forum is wonderful, in more ways than making pizza.  ;D I sure didnít expect to see crazybob and his wife yesterday. 

They do have a lot of experience in making food and being in a business.

I hope to be able to go to their drive-in someday.  They also gave me free passes, to visit their drive-in.

Norma, it was wonderful to meet you & Steve, yesterday, at the Root's Country Market. You make the best pizza I have ever eaten! I took this phot of you, as I was  drooling over your beautiful pizza. My wife vhad pepperoni, & I had the sausage. Thanks for all of your pizza making help, & look forward to more. Bob

crazybob,

It was also wonderful meeting you and your wife.  ;D Steve also enjoyed meeting both of you.  Thanks for saying we made the best pizza.  I learned too, on this forum how to make pizza, so if I can ever help someone else, with the limited knowledge, I do know, I would be glad to help anyone.  If it wasnít for this forum I wouldnít know anything about pizza. 

I enjoyed talking about your drive-in and all the knowledge you have about being a projectionist and running a business such as yours.  I also really enjoyed your wife, as Steve did and learning about her being a drummer.  I love any kind of music and always have some kind of music playing. 

Best of Success,

Norma

Your pizza looks great!  :) Keep up the good work and let us all know how your drive-in theatre and pizzas are going. 

Happy Pizza Making,

I finally got around to reading this thread today.  Wow!  CrazyBob, I hope you make a million.  I enjoyed your story very much.  It sounds like it would make a pretty decent cult movie.  I'll low ball you right now and offer you 100 kazolas for your story and movie rights.  Now if only I could get Peter to draw up a contract....  Thank you for sharing your experiences with us.
And Norma...  You are a sweetheart and a hoot.  I don't know why but each time I've run into someone from Pennsylvania, they are almost always nice and helpful.  I dig your once a week setup.  It sure beats the heck out of extreme heat, wind and rain.  Man, I hate humidity.

I hope this thread keeps going.  It's a nice peek into how nice life can be when folks treat each other decently.

PizzaPolice,

Crazybob is such a great guy.  So is his wife Darlene.  I also hope they make lots of money with their drive-in theatre and their new adventure in making pizza this year.  When Steve and I first got to meet them last week we both instantly like them.  They are such a nice couple.  Since drive-in theatres are becoming a thing of the past, it was really good to hear and see pictures of crazybobís drive-in theatre.

Thanks for your kind words about me.  My little pizza stand isnít air-conditioned and I work in very hot and humid conditions in the summertime.  I am used to it though from working at market for many years. 

I also hope this thread keeps going, because I enjoy hearing about crazybobís drive-in theatre.

Thanks, everyone! We had a great season.  We added an auxiliary, outdoor cafe to handle the crowds on weekends. It's just a tent from Sam's Club.

 We are looking forward to the spring. crazybob.

crazybobís wife recorded this at home.  crazybob started being an early morning DJ this year after a 6 year absence.  He has many talents in addition to making pizza.   ;D

crazy bob said, ďMy first day back at WVLT, after almost 6 & half years. I'm just doing this morning show for the winter months, then back to the Moon Drive-In for the Summer.Ē crazybob said in the captions for this video, ďIt was my 1st day back on the radio, after a 6 year absence. I was very nervous & rusty!Ē



If anyone is interested in listening to crazybob other talents of being a DJ, this is the radio station he is broadcasting from, early in the morning- 4:00-6:00 am.  http://www.wvlt.com/listenlive.html

My hat is off to crazybob for all of his talents.  :chef:

crazybob,

Thanks for posting about someone trying one of your pizzas with everything..lol, I wonder how that would have tasted.  :-D At least your dough held up to all those toppings.  Your crust looks great!  :) Good to hear from you!

Hi, Norma & the Gang! It's a 14" crust made from our 17 oz. dough ball. We're doing great & will stay open until November (on FRI-SAT.) Our big seller is a large pizza, bucket of 20 wings, & a cold 2 liter bottle of soda for 19.99. We now hand cut our own fries & fry them in peanut oil. We have posted allergy warnings.  I hope you all come pay us a visit! Thanks Crazy Bob.

CrazyBob good to hear from you again.  There looks to be a huge difference in the "doneness" on this pepperoni pizza and the one with all the toppings that you posted above.  Is it the same dough or different cooks?  I wish you continued success at the drive-in!

pete,

Crazy Bob once said in a post that the drive-in was called the Moon Drive-in. I believe that this is his website: http://moondrive-in.com/.
