Ev's Neapolitan Camper
« on: November 04, 2012, 01:29:55 AM »
I had some dough left over from an outing yesterday, so I needed to use it up. With the help of a neighbor, limited toppings, alcohol and Tom-foolery, a good time was had by all! :-D
 This was originally a 24hr idy room temp ferment, but 24 hrs later with some fridge time in between.

Steve,

Very cool!  8) The pies look delicous.  ;D  Did Sally and Stanley get any bones?

Guess my invite got lost in the mail.   :-D

Looks great.  I wanted to visit you on Friday, but I could not resist my own oven.

Steve,

You guys have done a terrific job retrofitting the Airstream. Do you have a cot that you can squeeze in there somewhere :-D? That way you can go directly from eating and drinking to bed. No designated driver needed.

Don't be sorry. I'm honored to be associated with such an incredible creation if even in the most tangential way!  ;D

Just curious Steve, what is the tongue weight of the Airstream with the oven being up front like that?

Can't wait to see pics of your first event!  It's going to blow people's minds!

I'm wondering what this is... I blew up the pic.
I'd rather eat one good meal a day than 3 squares of garbage.

Also (sorry to double-post), I was thinking that if you are really ready to get this off to a running start, you could do a lot worse than garner some free publicity by driving into NJ and setting up shop near a shelter. 
   Don't sell the pies, just ask for donations, then give 1/2 the received donations to the disaster relief effort.  You will make a lot more than your costs, no worries. 
   Make sure some media (TV station, radio station, etc) knows about it before it happens.  I am 100% sure they will be all over it as a "feel-good" story.

Plus, your Xtreme Airstream deserves mega-fame!

 :)

The Airstream and pies all look great, Steve. I love the expectant look on the faces of your customers ;D. I was wondering about the psychedelic (or is it disco) light thing-ey too.

Light travels faster than sound. That's why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.

It's absolutely ridiculous in the best way Steve.  Nobody is gonna possibly miss that things, and I highly doubt they will ever forget it.

Yep, that is a whole little world of cool right there. 

(That blow up looks like a color wheel to put in front of a projector)

Peter,

Steve told me the last time I was at his home for the brew makers picnic that if I drank too much he would put a cot in his Airstream so I wouldn't have to drive home.  I would have liked to take Steve up on that offer, but I had dogs to let out.

Thanks, everyone, for all the kind words! ;D
 It's been a lot of work but a lot of fun building the trailer. We lifted the body off the frame in order to beef up the frame to handle the extra weight, and also installed a new heavy duty torsion axle and a new floor. The oven is a Forno Bravo casa 90, 36" floor.
 Back in the 60s, shiny aluminum Christmas trees were popular. The color wheel has a built-in spotlight that would project colored light onto the tree. It works well against the white walls in the trailer. Kind of psychedelic looking.
 We've had the trailer out a few times so far with fairly positive response. I honestly don't know if this will ever be anything more than a hobby business. We plan to spend the winter planning for next year and possibly expanding our menu beyond just pizza a little bit. We're fairly space limited, so we can't get too carried away.

Norma, I'm sorry you were not invited last night. I was only going to make a couple pies for my family but then Sue invited the neighbors down and Lauren showed up with her boyfriend and I ended up making eleven pizzas. If I knew it was going to be a party I'd have invited you for sure. :angel:
