Walter, Scott, and Hey Pizza NJ,
I gotta say, you guys are great!!! I don't know if Pizza NJ is a guy or a girl? LOL Either way your one of the guys.
Thanks for all your help!! Scott you are so right, my cleaning company has a major trucking account with 16,500 drivers, Ive had it for the past 15 years, Long story short, These chemical hauling drivers have become very good friends over the years and they tell me all the time of what they deliver to put in chicken feed and water treatment plants, they tell me that you would never eat chicken again or drink municipal water after seeing what they pump out.
I was concerned that if I put out a delicious pie, that i was not harming anyone.
Then I thought and had a conversation with relatives from this holiday weekend concerning the bromated flour. It dawned that growing up in Staten Island (the worlds largest garbage dump of an island, look it up (Guinness book of records), I have been eating years of delicious, crispy, perfectly cooked Italian bread on sundays with pasta, bakery items from generations of Italian immigrants, pastries to die for, bagels you really never had so good in any other state and yes, tons of pizzerias who all made excellent pizza pies past down from generation to generation and I'm sure they were and still are all using Bromated Flour and getting the best results and I consumed
28 years then including polluted air from the dump (excessive retardation and defects in children living close to the dump).
Sooo, Scott has a very valid point. All of you and I da.. well know that our government allows so much of this in our foods which results in cancer, etc.
Walter, California is cool, but as you experienced is tough. My wife has a cousin who is a television star, ("turtle" from HBO "entourage", now canceled), Jerry Ferrara, really nice kid when I met him, cousin Jerry went out there with nothing, struggled, looking for a dream as an actor, met Mark Wahlberg, starred in a hit cable show became a millionaire, and the rest is history.
Now, my brother in law went out there with a dream to pursue IT. He lasted one year because it was so expensive to live there.
California is not easy and most people have a tough there. Not everyone is as fortunate as "Jerry".
Walter, those are great photos, that "Blodgett" looks like the pair I am trying to inherit now if I get this new deal close to home.
How many pies can you make total?
Crazy idea I had recently, thinking of roasting a "pig " in the la caja china rental I have and making a "pulled pork Pizza"?
Yeah or Neh?? Would customers like? Interesting idea.
On a funny note, if the pizzeria fails, I turn it either into a bbq or latin food joint! HAHA.
NP Pizza NJ, I will keep in touch when the a deal closes. Trouble is, everyone selling thinks they have a goldmine!
Scott, I read some old forums on your history with KA. I've had many bread loaves fail from there KA bread flour. And same recipe, success with Gold medal AP. I do not buy there flour anymore, overrated!
Did you hear or know about there "spring patent" flour? Is that to compete with the "spring king spring patent" brand?
Wonder if its any good?
Talk later gang!
Bye for now.
