What exactly does this item DO to the pizza?!
why, it infringes upon it, of course!.. Actually, it's got a conveyour belt that takes the pizza for a ride through the hot part at a timed speed.

With lots of juggling and fancy dance moves, of course!. I have all the other equipment I mentioned, but the possibility of doing many things at once is limited.

Sorry for all the problems Vera... but once again THANK YOU for writing a story that made me smile. You should write a book!

Admit it Vera, you order a bunch of pizza the night before, and just serve them cold pizza for lunch!

College kids are suckers for cold pizza, it's like a drug!

this thread reminds me of another forum for chefs that i stopped by to peruse a few days ago. everyone was pissing & moaning about their workplace. the kitchen, the other chefs, the mangager, the owner...whine, whine, whine.

it's been over 15 years since i stopped cheffing, but it's comforting to know there are some things in this world other than death and taxes which never change.

Actually, no, I never have. For the very very very brief time I was in college, I was an english education major. Sadly, I only stayed the course for just shortly over a semester. Cooking was a passion as well as the written word. The blade won, but I never parted company with the pen.
