200  - at 900+ degrees they are all different  ;D
Seriously I had five or six different toppings that were left over from my last gig. However what did people order?  89% Margherita , 8% pepperoni , 3% sausage

Nice John,  I have one on the 14th for 80 people, and a band is going to be playing too. Is going to be the biggest gig yet for me so I so not know exactly how I will survive the first 30 min when everybody wants so have some pizza!
By the way, the FGM eats very little wood and performs beautifully, I am loving it.
Your set up looks nice! keep it up.

Yep need the cold  storage and makes the health dept. Very happy!
Yes, Nico it was good day $ challenge and I wanted to see if I could pull it off. $ it's  the day prep and day cleanup that are not so profitable oh that's right they are FREE!!
Also keep in mind you have 3 people to pay + yourself. Use of commissary, permits,  fees, ingredients for 200 pies, endless cleaning, get there early to set up for a total of 12 hr day !  .... Got the picture ? X times Y does not = Z! But it's so much  fun ?
Not bad ,  but a 40 person catering job  for 4 hours total is a a breeze for a similar ( or better )outcome !
Ciao

Agree 100%, i will take a 40/50 people catering over an event even if I know I will sell 300 pies....all the paperwork, permits, etc are a pain. Catering is easy money if you can get them consistently....

Great to IN The Party This is exactly why I don't have a big  truck or concession trailer. People LOve it when everyone can watch  :o  the  whole process and see the fire. I snuck thru a 7ft gate with new trailer pusher and whala  great set up ! about 80 people what a great day ! Marylynn Monroe even popped out of the cake !!! ;D

It was a Brazilian theme Party  with Menu  (and Ingredients ) provided by Owner. Some crazy good combos, along with the classics ! Also pulled my own cheese for this special party using the  Losurdo curd which I love! and people loved it too !!    Onions, Olives, Oregano and Catupiry soft cheese on most . finished with the classics, Nutella pies.

Can you expand on your new trailer pusher? Looking for one, but my oven is 2 tons and a 400lb tongue weight, hesitant to pull the trigger on anything.

It's a park it 360
What size is your oven 48"?
Tandem trailer ?
Think my tpu hue weight is at least 300 but I just love my 40" single axle trailer so cool  be IN the party not just AT the party
Easy 200 pies in 4 hours
Next oven will be a bigger 48" for vending and doing 300-400 a day but just not required for the private catering  I love to do

Nicely done. Did you ever get that email I finally sent you back like a year later? Sorry I left you hanging. I just kinda disappeared for a while.
