Well folks, blogging just hasn't been a priority. In fact, we have been so busy making pizza, we missed some pretty big milestones!
We have officially made THOUSANDS of pizzas.
We have grown our facebook community, http://www.facebook.com/pizzacarrello and we have made a lot of new friends on and off of the internet.
We have some caterings under our belt, and we are earning a great reputation for quality food, dynamic atmosphere, and meeting everyone's budget! We couldn't be more proud!
We've been working from 7:00am until 11:00pm every single day for months now, and since it's been raining, we've been working hard to catch up on some much needed sleep!
We have only ceased to street vend when the wind is strong enough to blow the pepperoni right off the pizza or when there is precipitation, as we have learned, just like in elementary school, flour and water make glue and making pizza gets a little sticky!
We donated pizza for Herb Kalenberg's Artist Reception at Cam-Plex. If you haven't checked out his work yet, get down to the Cam-Plex Heritage Center Gallery for a look! Or check out is facebook page, http://www.facebook.com/pages/Herb-Kalenberg-Artist/107118126013060
We participated in a school fundraiser to help the Discovery Imagination group at Lakeview Elementary. We hired the kids to move four pallets of oak firewood from a trailer into a shed. The money they earned contributed to their trip to Tennessee for a national conference.
We can now enjoy the shade! Builder extraordinaire, Bob Trowe, made some amazing tilting, adjustable rotating umbrella stands that mount to the trailer. They are FANTASTIC! The red umbrellas look nice too!
We have started to build our own commercial kitchen so that we can make our dough morning, noon, and night.
We are hiring employees so we can start a dinner shift!
And now pictures. Enjoy!
Pizza Carrello is building a trailer on which to build a wood-fired pizza oven. This blog documents the progress, struggles and successes of the construction project.
