As a former employee at a pizza joint, I know that time is money. As a minimum-wage pizza pie producer, time did not equal very much money, but money nonetheless. However, for the owners of a pizza emporium, time used is money spent–not money earned. The quicker you go from dough to dough, the better. Knowing this, I became very interested in this Doughpro video. A pizza in five minutes? It’s been done before, yes, but that’s still pretty quick. I was expecting a perfectly choreographed ballet of epic proportions to see a pizza get done, cooked and served, in that time.
However, after watching the video, I came away impressed not by the cook’s talents–he seemed to bumble around, and I’m not sure he put on enough sauce–but by how the tools that Doughpro provided seems to have helped him immensely. Every time he touched a Doughpro product, he was done with it in the blink of an eye. Easy-peasy pizza-squeezy. So, it dawned on me: if this guy can make a pizza in less than five minutes with their products, anybody can. And after reflecting about my talent and dexterity, or lack there-of, as a former pizza-making employee, that truly is astonishing.
