Walter, it sounds a bit like the Head of Operations wants your help, but the Head Chef might be happy with the status quo. Was the Head Chef able to get a taste of the pizza you brought over with the bagels? If not, I would make that a priority.
I don't know how many weekends you were planning on helping out, but it sounds like this could involve more than a couple. Whenever you're dealing with altering pizza in a production setting- especially altering a product to this extent, with unskilled workers and with a chef that might not be all that open to change, you need to go very slowly.
Full Strength is better than All Trumps, btw- especially in the hands of unskilled workers who might have a tendency to overwork the dough. If you overwork AT, you've got shoe leather. Overworking Full Strength, on the other hand, is no big deal.
You have your work cut out for you. As wonderful as it is for Paige to be employed, it would be disappointing if she ended up making pizza that she wasn't proud of. I have no doubt that making your pizza/baked goods and the pride that it entails is a big motivating force for her.
