tonight was a breakthrough for me. i learned something new about the ovens that i had maybe once known but forgot. in messing with the oven baffles, i was able to cook pizzas about twice as fast as normal. the pies were flying out tonight. a medium cheese at 7:30 took about 15 minutes from order being taken to table. i’m going crazy about this new knowledge. i can’t believe it took me 4 years to figure it out. i’ve got a much higher chance of burning a pie now because the ovens are so hot, but if i am on it, i can crank out those babies. which means that people will ge their food much faster, which is obviously good because the people are hungry.
there were a couple minor mistakes, but mostly it was pretty fun. the kitchen guys were telling jokes, the new booths on the screen porch seem to be working out. the pies were all looking good.
we got a bunch of rowdy race fans. i love those guys, ordering 7 meat toppings and extra cheese on their pies, drinking bud light like water. i need to go find the photo i took of them last year and put it on the website. they looked for it…
