I have heard companies say that they love their customers. In this case, love isn't exactly the right word. I am in awe of this group.
They are Pirates (or the Ship of Fools here) and they are the most daring, outrageous pizza cooking bunch I have ever seen. Before they cooked pizza using the Pizza-Porta at Porkopolis last year we had a couple of telephone conversations about pizza making, but it became clear that they had everything all figured out. I was a guest at the Porkopolis event and was very impressed. The team had racks and pans and rollers and timers and signs custom made for the event. They ended up cooking 50 pizzas that day including some pretty unique combinations. And, they took first place in the competition. That is first place with pizza at a meatfest... err.. I mean Eggfest!
Well, they did it again! This is the menu from the Chain of Lakes Eggfest in Winter Haven Florida in March. They again skipped the basic margherita and pepperoni in favor of some magical pizzas. To honor the local cuisine, they invented a couple of pies. A Cuban pizza made perfect sense for a Florida event, but then they went and made a Key Lime Pie pizza!
I have tried many different things on pizza, but Korean sauce on brisket sounded a little out there. And, a Cuban sandwich is tough to imitate in pizza form. Key lime pizza? I was skeptical. Thankfully we had a runner who went down and snatched up some samples. Let me tell you, I was blown away. They pulled off an amazing combination and the crust was crispy and not overwhelmed and loaded down with moisture. My compliments to the chefs!
When the day was done and the judge's votes were counted, the Ship of Fools pulled off another win at an Eggfest They were the 2018 Judges Choice.
In addition to having great cooking skills, they are the nicest folks you could ever meet. Competitive yes, but they are great ambassadors of the Egg community. I am humbled to have had such a fantastic team choose the Pizza-Porta to demonstrate their skills!
Thank you Greg, Bill, Teena, and Kellie (and Aaron) for choosing the Pizza-Porta
