Thanks akuban.  This is the exact moment at Best when I realized that the cheese had melted to the roof of my mouth.  -- Priceless.  Iirc.

LMFAO Gene!

Almost looks like you realize your head may explode.

Great shot. -k

I'd be curious to know for sure. Standing in front of them, they seemed smaller than mine which is 120.

What's the width of your entrance, 17"?

  What's Up Fellas!  My ovens are 120 cm.  I can fit 4 12-13" pizzas or 3 16" inch large pies.  Although, the most I ever bake in the oven at one time is two pies, individual or large.  Yes the mouth is custom for my 16" pie.

Thanks Frank. Quick question. Did you do something to it to make a 16" possible or did you ask SF to mode the entrance?

 :D see I do pay attention frank ! and I will answer again for 10 points. only know because frank has told me the face plate comes off and was modified by local crafstman. Think story was Stefano was slack in responding to his request, and frank figured it out rather than wait.  Sure frank will chime in again after dinner rush. Nice to know you are lurking out there ;) see you soon ,I need my Vesta fix .

  Yes the first oven, they made custom for me before it was shipped.  I didnt do both because I wasnt too sure how it was going to work out.  After I was open for three months I hired a local guy to do the second one.  He actually had to crawl inside the oven lol!  The reason I had the local guy do it was because I think Stefano was really busy and couldnt make it out for another 6 weeks, and it was more inexpensive than flying him all the way out here.

  COme in for the fix and some shop talk John. :chef:

That's great, Paulie. Was this really your first time?

How did it compare to New Park? Who was making pies- was it Michelle or one of the brothers?

Did you get a hat?  ;)

Yes, first time.  Apples and oranges on New Park.  I loved the lightness of the slices.  If I didn't get that fried ham and cheese calzone I could have eaten a whole pie.  I met both girls.  They are having Bruce bring in from home a vintage Pizza Town USA hat that lights up.

Oh, come on, Paulie, apples and oranges?  These are both classic NY style pizzas.  I wouldn't ask you to compare Pizzatown to Keste, but Pizzatown and New Park are birds of the same feather.

Let's try this hypothetical.  You haven't eaten at p-town or new park in 6 months and are in the mood for a NY slice. Both are next door to each other.  Where you do you get the slice from?

Are you serious about that hat?  They're just bringing it in to show it to you, right?  You're already a legend, Paulie, but I think if you could score that hat, you'd become immortal  ;D

If we can all answer the above question I wold have to go with New Park (not too well done) and scrape the salt off! wait-  that sounds like too much work !  You know from My posts, Pizza Town Is one of my absolute  Favorites but its almost beyond NY if that makes sense? Chau?
and I though Larry had the girls loosened up ? A light up hat No way Paulie Gee!

Absolutely apples and oranges.  Maybe even apples and bowling balls.  The New Park slice is softer and had much more cheese on it.  It's also bigger.  The Pizza Town slice has far less cheese and is crisper than the New Park slice.  I could easily scoff down twice as many Pizza Town slices.  I love them both, but having to chose one or the other, I'd chose the New Park 9 out of 10 times. 

As far as the hat goes, I'm as serious as a heart attack.  Wanna wager that I can produce a picture by tax day.  $20.
