A Girl and Her Dragon – Taxes and Finance

Apr 10, 2017

I love running A Girl and Her Dragon Pizza, I really do. I love making pizza, eating pizza, seeing how happy other people are to eat my pizza, the works. I love trying new recipes, shopping for ingredients, experimenting with new toppings and combinations. Essentially, I love pizza It was only after starting the business that I realized that pizza was not the be-all end-all (sacrilege, I know). I anticipated... Read More

A Girl and Her Dragon – Marketing Part 2

Jan 25, 2017

This blog is part of a two-part series on how I’ve approached marketing A Girl and Her Dragon Pizza. Last month’s blog ended with an overview of my first tentative foray into catering marketing. I listed the almost disturbing number of promotional items and random surfaces I’ve put my logo on, from t-shirts and tablecloths to tents and aprons (we recently bought two foot by one-foot car magnets as well)....

A Girl and Her Dragon – Marketing Part I

Dec 01, 2016

This blog is part of a two-part series on how I’ve approached marketing A Girl and Her Dragon Pizza. I apologize for the delay; I’m in the middle of applying to colleges so things have been a bit hectic! I am not what you would call a “natural marketer.” As you can imagine, this small deficiency presents a bit of a problem in a business that requires near constant promotion... Read More

A Girl and Her Dragon – Don’t Panic

Oct 04, 2016

No matter how long you’ve been catering, or how many times you’ve run through every part of the pizza making process, every once in a while you’re going to hit a snag and things are going to teeter on the edge of falling apart. I felt this keenly a couple of months ago, standing in front a fire that would not start, stupidly having let myself run out of kindling,... Read More

A Girl and Her Dragon – Beyond Pizza

Sep 07, 2016

You can cook more than just pizza in that oven of yours. I know, I know, sacrilege! It’s a pizza oven for a reason! Hear me out though. I’ve catered close to a dozen events this summer, from massive corporate parties to private birthday bashes, and a couple of times clients have asked us for something beyond the basic insert-your-toppings-here package. In response to their requests, I did a bit... Read More

A Girl and Her Dragon Building a Wood Oven Fire

A Girl and Her Dragon – She’s on Fire!

Jul 05, 2016

The bright side is that, as of the writing of this latest blog, I haven’t set anything on fire that I wasn’t supposed to. I am not going to lie; there have been a few close calls. Turns out burning cornstarch will adhere to a pizza peel and turn a 6-foot cooking implement into a temporary torch. Evidently supposedly dead coals can flare up when brought out of the oven...

A Girl and Her Dragon – Quest Night #2: The Re-Cheesening

May 19, 2016

Yes, I have gone to the dark side of cheesy (haha) blog titles. Last time it was an incomprehensible pun, this time it’s some sort of movie rip-off. The Re-Cheesening sounds like last year’s failed horror reboot, but hey, I like it. Humor aside, this was my second Quest night with the pizza oven, and it went amazingly! I learned from my mistakes last year, and got the fire up... Read More

Rolling Out the Dough

Mar 21, 2016

I spent longer than I’d like to admit thinking of halfway decent puns that involve the word “dough.” I’m not sure why, this post is a pretty straightforward recollection of how I found at the dough I use today. Well, to be honest, getting the dough wasn’t all too straightforward. I had to go through half a dozen contacts, two different companies (one twice), and some less-than ideal recipes. I... Read More

Bad Weather and Pizza Ovens

Feb 04, 2016

As a resident of California for the past 17 years, I believe that I can officially claim the title of spoiled summer child. As much as I would like to deny it, I simply can’t take the cold. A brisk breeze sends me running in search of a coat (much to my Virginian father’s amusement), and I adamantly believe that the best way to experience a snowstorm is inside one’s... Read More
