Since the last time we blogged:
We FINALLY got the little lever spigot we wanted for our hand-washing station.
We got our License to sell food from the State of Wyoming.
We sold our very first pizza, a Jalapeno Popper Pizza, with peppers, bacon and cream cheese, to Deb Morgan.
We secured a couple of locations, and more are in the works.
We have an amazing new assistant/pizziolo (a person who makes pizza is called a pizziolo, and sometimes pizziola if the artist is a woman). This young gentleman is Aaron Morlock and today he really worked hard, stayed focused, and created amazing pizzas. Aaron is currently volunteering to gain experience, but we hope to promote him as soon as we are able. He has truly been an incredible asset already, and he's only worked a day and a half!
We made over 70 pizzas on the fly at the Don's Supermarket parking lot in 6 hours, we could have sold a lot more, but we ran out of dough. Even though it was an impulse decision, we just couldn't wait another minute to make pizza. We had no signs, no menus. Only business cards, and everything needed to make simple, delicious pizza pies. We didn't post on Facebook, we told about 10 people after we arrived. We just sat at the back of the parking lot and let the wonderful aromas bring the people to us. We stayed so busy we didn't take a picture! However, loyal customer Sara Morgan took these for us. Over and OVER we heard, "I've never had anything like this!" and, "This is the best pizza I've ever had!" and we were only making cheese and pepperoni pizza. It was a great day for Pizza Carrello!
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.
