Another (cheap) technique... used by many ex-Aust Army
place a 'sacrificial' bowl of scraps (make sure there is a bit of meat or seafood)- away from main eating area... after waving flies away repeatedly (we call this 'the Aussie salute'), they will actually learn that a free feed is still available without the effort
You will still get the occassional intruder - but you'll be surprised at the effectiveness of this method to lure them away

Thanks to all who answered. I have settled on three methods so far:
1. the parasites that consume or destroy the fly larvae.
2. the fly bait container that attracts then traps the flies.
3. and yes I will try the cayenne pepper sprinkled on the deck.3

I will let everyone know how it goes this "pizza" season.

quick update:

the fly bait trap systems work good, have trapped several thousands (at least) of flies. the gnat parasites that eat the fly larvae also seems to be working as we have fewer barn flies at the horse barn, thus fewer flies at the pizza kitchen.
