I hope you have public liability in case someone gets sick?

I was thinking around the same price too.
I thought about giving samples to lure them in too, so the heat lamp makes sense.

We have quite a few markets and shows around Melbourne that we always attend and Im amazed that no one does pizza, just the usual crappy deep fried food that tastes awful.

I just have to convince my princess that its viable.

Yeah, got that $200/ yr It wasn't easy either, insurance Cos. didn't seem to like the word "fire". Give it a shot, but don't invest too much in it to start, it is easier to put back into it as you go rather than have to pay yourself back a large sum.

My pizzas go as soon as they come out of the oven. I don't like the idea of keeping pizzas hot, they're best eaten straight out of the oven (don't we all know it?)

The first oven I sold was to a mate I had given a trailer to because the top had rusted out. He got a job playing Rugby in Ireland, had to leave the country quickly, so because he owed me money he brought the trailer back with a ute body welded on to the chassis. This is what I now use for my mobile, so in effect it didn't cost me anything, it's terrific.

With me shoveling them in and out, maintaining fire on the side,dressing and cutting and an assistant prepping we can do 90sec to two min. pizzas pretty continuously. I like to do around 30 that's comfortable for an evening.

My BP had 60 for a market, to up to 100 for a private event. 60ea 12" pies x $10.00= $600.00 - 180.00(food cost) - 50.00(assistant) = $370/4(hours) = $92.50 per hour. Not bad.

Less site fees, some shows want $300 here for a weekend show.

It was free or less than 30 bucks for the ones I checked (farmer's markets). That also why only 4 hours. For a fair or something that lasted multiple days, you will need a commissary unless it is very close to your house (and that is not really legal here, you have to use a commissary).
