Norma,

How many helpers do you have at market?  Do they usually stick around for awhile, or do you have to replace them regularly?  I know you are very busy, and was just curious how much help you have :)

Andy,

I only have one helper at market, unless it was something like this past Tuesday when Bev came in the morning until 2:00 PM.  Bev then taught Liz what to mostly do for 2 hours.  Liz was a quick learner and I didn't have to explain a lot to her.  I would like to have more than one helper, but then everyone gets in each others way.  The stand is so small that even with just 2 we keep bumping into each other.  Usually helpers don't last really long, unless it was someone like my granddaughter that comes and goes.  When Liz decides to leave I might decide to sell the stand.  This past weekend I didn't know if I would have any helpers for this past Tuesday.  That makes it hard to decide how many doughs to prepare on a Saturday.  A helpers job is not easy either.

I have talked to other standholders at market recently and they are also having a hard time finding helpers that are good and reliable.  I understand that because it is only a one day job.

NJ Boardwalk has this pizzeria called Sawmill that has massive slices.  One slice is equal to maybe 3 slices from a regular pizzeria.  I eat a lot and I barely finished them.  Quality is good though.

It's more like 2.25 slices (27" pie), but I loved the Sawmill 25 years ago for a decent slice and a Coke for $1.25.  I took my son to a local place yesterday that has 26" slice pies.  Two slices and a drink for $6.00.  Probably a better deal today than the Sawmill back then.

Then Liz had better stay!
 
I can see the schedule makes it hard to  find a helper, but closing would be such a shame...You are the best!

Bill,

Liz is young and who knows what she might decide to do in the future.  At least I had one more day to make pizzas.  I enjoy making pizza for the public a lot, but am almost too old to do that all day long.  A whole day of making pizza almost nonstop takes it toll on me.  :-D Besides being tired after a day of making pizzas I don't get enough of the work done at home all week long.

I think what is meant to be is the way I think now. 

Thanks for your kind comments!  :)

It looks like Charles Bangle, one of the owners of Manco & Manco, is headed off to do hard time:

Upped the hydration from Peter's advise.  The dough batch didn't feel much of any difference than last week.

Didn't have much time to take photos, but the dough was easier to open.  Not as easy as the regular formula for market though.

I guess there needs to be more sauce and cheese applied to the edges.  The crust tasted good.

So sorry to hear of Anthony Maruca's passing.  Anthony was only 23 years old.

That's absolutely horrible. 
Things have never been more like today than they are right now.
