Believe it or not, lots of people don't know that

I mean, I don't think anyone bites into a pickle and thinks wow, that's the best tasting cucumber I've ever eaten.

And yikes, I feel for you, having to work in those conditions. I'd pass out within 5 minutes. In this heat (90-degree temps, up to 100 degrees heat index) just walking the trash out to the big bin is enough to kill me. I don't tolerate heat well. I get bad headaches, I start feeling nauseous, etc. Many years ago (when I too worked in restaurant kitchens) I could handle it. But not anymore.

Leave out the oil if your recipe calls for it.

Ouch, what a sad story. Any chances you would leave that horrible place and look for a new job with better conditions?
The dough is a base ingredient making any pizza. That fact that your boss isn't aware of that makes me feel sorry that such pizzerias exist.
