Bride of Wonderboy; Simply Disgust-a-licous!

      The trouble with eating Italian food is that five or six days later you’re hungry again.  ~George Miller

So, what would you name a pizza with a crust stuffed with hot dogs and mustard, then slather mac and cheese all over as a sauce, then add cheddar, mozzarella, provolone, beef, bacon, onion, tomato, dill pickles, french fries and ketchup. I found that “Bride of Wonderboy” fit the bill nicely. The original “Wonderboy” just got a little old without the mac and cheese sauce. (I must give credit to Mark Mizer, the President of RDP Foodservice for first turning me on to a mac and cheese sauce.)

 When I first pulled a prototype of this monster pizza out of my oven, it smelled like every fast food joint I’ve ever been to. I smiled and said to my General Manager “This is disgustingly…attractive, but I don’t think anyone is sick enough to order this.”   I was wrong; not just a little wrong. I was as wrong as  Napoleon at Waterloo, or Davey Crockett at the Alamo, or anyone who thought Beta Max tapes were the wave of the future.                          


So, It’s been almost 2 years now since the first culinary abomination appeared at my store. My General Manager, Joel Fair has become the Bride of Wonderboy expert, (especially after midnight-where a lot of the Wonderboy volume occurs.)


                                     Corey, Elliott and Levi tried to devour the Bride here. Who do you think won?

It was with this in mind that we hosted a small Bride of Wonderboy eating contest with three employees to gauge what time anyone could eat this monster in. Elliot, Levi and Cory really slammed a lot of food but only one was victorious.


Do you trust this man to disgust you and your family properly with a four pound pizza? Joel Fair is the master of the ‘Bride.’


 Here is the Video:                                  

Anyone squeemish about people eating massive amounts of nitrates, cheese, corporate meats and potatoes should NOT watch this video.
Levi Meyer won at a World Record time of 59 minutes and 47 seconds, (No kidding…Oh yea, you think you can do better? We’ll supply the bucket.) Levi will now get his picture on our wall of Wonderboy for all his efforts.

Kids Love Making Pizza!

Dear Parents,

Are you tired of being cooped up inside with the kids, because of winter storms and closed schools? I’ve got just the activity that doesn’t involve screens, video games, kids poking each other in the eye or reenacting whole Seinfeld episodes. It’s making pizza!


After almost 10 years of making a fool of myself for hundreds of kids at my pizzeria, I’ve found the one thing that kids love more than eating pizza. Making it! It gives kids the chance at empowerment in the one realm that they usually have no control over: the lunches and dinners are usually made for them. You will love the awesome look of pride on your kid’s face as you say “Hey, little Jimmy, your pizza looks absolutely…er…fabulous!”

Beware this activity may become addictive. Now, eat your broccoli.

My kids beg me to make pizza every week. Here is some of the fun we have.

Let’s start with the plan.

1. Either obtain some pizza dough from your (local) pizza place or make your own with my easy pizza recipe. If you’ve chosen to cop some pizza dough from a pizza place you will have to use a strategy, as lots of places are reluctant sell pizza dough. They want to sell you finished pizza. Call and tell them this: “I have a special diet and need to pick up 2 small  (7-10 ounce) dough balls for my kids.” Before they have a chance to tell you “No,” say: “There’s five bucks in it for you.” Now go pick it up.

2. Preheat an upturned heavy cookie sheet to 450 degrees on the middle oven shelf.

3. Follow the instructions for forming dough in the easy pizza dough recipe and top it with anything you kids want.

Be sure to make one for yourself, unless you want to share in some bizarre combo like Cheetos, M&Ms, Velveeta, spinach and hot dogs (Yeeeeuuuuuk).
