Saturday, August 13th, 2011, GoreMade Pizza was invited to be the "food vendor" for a mock-festival party at Hockenhaus. From 7-9 pm, I made pizza in Brian's lovely kitchen. By the way, his kitchen totally kicks ass!
I made a total of 8 pizzas over the two hour happy hour. We were trying to figure out how to handle the monetary situation so that brian and I weren't footing the bill for 60 or so people to eat pizza. Brian suggested having a tip jar out for everyone to pay what they want. I was interested in how it would turn out, so we tried it.
It turns out that I got almost exactly what the ingredients cost me, which was awesome. I got to spread the GoreMade name around, got some really positive feedback from practically everyone who tried it out, and I got to step up my production, making more dough at one time that had ever previously been attempted. All of which encourage growth and a better understanding of the goals I am striving for!
