Pizza Consultation

This week I had the pleasure of helping out a new restaurant in Cedar Rapids. They were having trouble with the pizza oven that was left by the previous owner of the space. They also needed a little help with their pizza dough recipe. I met them at their location, and in just few hours I was able to help them with both their problems. We made a batch of dough, from a recipe I supplied, and everyone got a chance to shape, stretch, top, and bake their own pizza. I went over maintaining and operating a wood-fire pizza oven; it was a beautiful pizza oven by the way. At the end of the lesson, I left them with a pizza dough recipe of great quality and lower food cost. I even showed them a couple different ways to repurpose leftover dough. This was such a fun opportunity and I really had a blast from start to finish.
