I was in Wildwood today and did purchase a whole Mackís pizza that wasnít cut.
I have to first explain some about what happened. I think I already know the answer, but wanted to know what you think.
I ordered a whole pie that wasnít cut and my daughter and I sat right in front on stools where the piemen usually open the dough balls, dress the pizzas and also slide the pizzas into the oven.
Firstly, I didnít see any dough balls on the metal trays. Secondly, I saw the piemen take one pizza out of the oven and then someone cut it for other customers that sat in the back of Mackís. There were no other customers inside at Mackís. Wildwood at about dinner time was slow. Earlier in the day it was a lot busier.
I was waiting for the piemen to get some dough balls, but didnít see them get any or open any. In about 2 minutes the lady that had taken our order was given another pizza and she cut it. I heard her then say, Oh, I forgot she doesnít want the pizza cut. She then told the piemen she needed another pizza made. My daughter and I both watched and didnít see any dough ball opened, dressed, or put into the oven in the front. In about another minute my pizza was taken out of the oven on the side. I couldnít figure out what was going on and all I did was take the boxed pizza to my daughterís car that we had parked in a paid parking lot right behind Mackís. I really wasnít thinking clearly and all I thought about was weighing the pizza. I had purchased a sand bucket in Wildwood and had taken a pizza screen and my scales along. I put the scales on the macadam and then the sand bucket and the pizza screen on top of the sand bucket, then tared them out. This was about 3 minutes from the time when I purchased the pizza. I noted the weights being 2.22 lbs., or 962 grams (the pizza could have lost some weigh until I changed from ounces to grams). I do have pictures of me weighing the pizza, but thought I would first post about what happened after that. I examined the pizza carefully, took pictures and then cut it. My daughter and I then ate some hot slices. We both then started talking about what had happened inside of Mackís. I said I didnít even see where they got those pizzas from and maybe they were already made and just reheated. My daughter and I either though that, or maybe they used a par-baked pizza. I am not sure of those observations, but that is the only thing that makes sense to us now. I sure donít know how they would have made the pizza any other way. My daughter noted the temperature on the digital readout at 508 degrees F.
If this is what really happened and Mackís just reheated an already baked pizza, I donít think my weighing would be right. If this is the case, I guess just I am disgusted, because then my weighs wouldnít be right.
I have pictures of the pizza and the rim crust and bottom crust sure donít look like they usually do.
What do you think, before I post any of the pictures, or tell more about the pizza I purchased at MackĎs?
