We had a big party in our town celebrating the comeback from the tornadoes that crashed through downtown a couple of years ago and I brought out the mobile oven again.  it was a huge crowd and there wasn't much else to eat for the first hour and a half except for our pizza.  We went through 200 paper plates in about an hour.  they looked like the hungry horde from where I was standing!  I made 36 pies, all margaritas, two at a time as fast as I could go.  I don't know how John can make 'em as fast as he does.  I was doing it all myself.

You need someone to make while you work as wheelman.

Awesome pics Bill.  And that pie looks awesome.   Did you get to eat at all?   You look so focused!

 I do need someone for these big events but I always want every pie to be the best I can do.  in this case 200 people got 1 slice of a pie and I hoped that they were all good.  its hard to get someone to do either end of the deal like I want it.  that said, it makes sense John that you put someone on the oven.  I think that would probably be the better choice.  I do have someone who is good but he couldn't make it this time.
the bigger problem is everyone else wanting to help!   chau, I finally got a slice at the end but before that I didn't look up for an hour.  it even affected my drinkflow

Passion oozing from the poors.!
Shame about the drink flow Bill. Good news  they make a hat with a straw that seems to work well for keeping your hands free. sure Bob will post it
Yes Bill Much Much easier to train the oven man than the stretch almost impossible unless you have some background or experience and even more impossible as perfect as yours!

Bill,

I'm impressed with your business-like approach to the matter--no laughing, no smiling, with the pizzas getting your full and undivided attention. And with a cool hat and bent up visor to boot ;D.

we got the trailer out yesterday to feed a bunch of tired and hungry bike racers after our local annual race.  they were an easy bunch to please!  I managed a couple of pictures but it wasn't easy, had to move fast - those guys were starving. the oven was working well at temps around 875.  it was a cool day and the dough could have used another hour or two but it still baked up nice.  definitely bumping up the starter this time of year.
