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

Forno Bravo Pre-Cured Ovens

Why Did Forno Bravo Start Offering Pre-Cured Ovens?

Sep 28, 2016

All refractory ovens, whether commercial grade refractory pizza ovens like Forno Bravo, or hand crafted brick ovens like those imported from Italy or made by masons require curing. Why? Because these types of ovens are made with “manufacturing water” that needs to be baked out of the dome slowwwly to strengthen the pizza oven and get it ready for cooking. This curing process takes a lot of time, usually between... 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...
