Bakers Pride Pizza Ovens: Serve ‘Em a Slice of Pie

Tuesday, July 5th, 2011

Want a fabulous way to win the hearts and minds of the most particular restaurant customers anywhere? Serve them pizza. But don’t just serve them any old round pie; give them a delectable and piping hot dish right out of one of our Bakers Pride ovens, like the Bakers Pride Oven Super Deck GS-805-NAT. This beautifully crafted pizza oven is specifically made for high-volume pizza operations, so you can artistically design and bake a feast so mouth-watering, your customers will say “yummy” before they walk in the door.

The Bakers Pride Super Deck GS-805-NAT receives a 5-Star rating and Editor’s Choice here at Short Order, meaning you can’t go wrong when you are crafting a pizza so delicious an ancient Greco-Roman would sit for hours philosophizing about it. Interestingly, the use of pie as another expression for pizza stems from a Byzantine Greek word known as “pita.” Yet, with the popularity of pizza in world cuisine, you won’t want a pizza that comes from the oven and used as a Frisbee instead of being devoured by your hungry patrons. With a 300° to 600° F throttling thermostat, top and bottom heat control dampers and micro-slides, your pizzas will come out hot and delighting all five human senses. The GS-805-NAT is also fully insulated, ensuring a cooler outer temperature and consistent interior heating. This model and all Bakers Pride ovens can be stacked two high, so pizza operations can be scaled.

Functionality is only one part of this magnificent piece of commercial kitchen equipment. The exterior is constructed using heavy-gauge, type 403 stainless steel, and the interior frame is made from 1/4” heavy-duty angle iron and welded into a single unit. Spring-balanced doors and tubular steel handles all make this oven both sturdy and dependable.

The Super Deck GS-805-NAT isn’t the only fantastic choice for pizza ovens here at Short Order. Choose from this and a variety of other pieces of restaurant equipment from the Bakers Pride brand that will have customers practically banging down your door for a slice of amazing pizza.


New Pizza World Record Attempt by Florida Pizza Shop

Tuesday, May 27th, 2008

New Pizza World Record

Big Apple Pizza & Pasta in Fort Pierce, Florida is looking to break the longest pizza line world record. According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the current record is held by the Tiziano Shopping Centre Tenant’s Union in Treviso, Italy. They had a line that was 611 feet 2 inches long back in October 28, 2006. Big Apple Pizza & Pasta owner Scott VanDuzer says that he will be able to make a line more than 700 feet long.

I wonder what kind of pizza oven he is using for baking all those pizzas.

Other Pizza World Records

Aside from the World’s Longest Pizza line record, there are a few other world records involving pizza that Montague Pizza Ovenwe feel are worth mentioning. There is the Fastest Time to Eat a 12” Pizza, which is held by Tom Waes from Ghent, Belgium. Tom ate a pizza in 2 minutes and 19.91 seconds on December 2nd, 2006. Then there is the World’s Record for largest pizza order set by Papa John’s on June 8, 2007.

Fifteen San Diego area Papa John’s Pizza stores delivered 13,500 pizzas at exactly 11:00 am to the same destination, General Dynamics NASSCO shipyard. The pizzas were a reward to the crew there for the completion of the Navy’s newest dry cargo/ammunition ship, the USNS Lewis and Clark.

Pizza World Records Require Pizza Ovens

We were thinking that the only way that a restaurant could break a world record is if they had the proper equipment. So, if you are planning on attempting your own pizza record, give one of our representatives a call and we can help you pick out the proper pizza oven. We have a large selection of sizes and brands, including Baker’s Pride, Garland and Montague, so there is sure to be one just right for your shop.

Do you think there is a world record for number of pizza ovens carried by one restaurant equipment company?

International Pizza Expo Updates: Day Three!

Thursday, April 3rd, 2008

The International Pizza Expo Sports More Games Than Just Pizza Spinning

Pizza Expo attendees may be unaware, but the World Pizza Games that wrapped yesterday aren’t the only games at the International Pizza Expo. According to the Pizza Expo website, there are sixteen entertainment/game companies here at the show, including videogame heavyweight Namco.

The heydays of the video game arcade are lonpizza oveng gone, and kids no longer hoard quarters for afternoons playing Defender and Dragon’s Lair. However, many pizza expo attendees would argue that no pizzeria is complete without a few arcade games. That’s certainly what you’d hear if you went by booth 1095 today – the booth of the American Amusement Machine Association.

International Pizza Expo Highlights from Thursday

Today also featured the International Pizza Challenge and Pizza Festiva finals (including the crowning of the 2008 Pizza of the Year) and the $20,000 MEGA BUCKS Giveaway drawing. It’s crazy that the International Pizza Expo – already a great event – can top it all off by giving away $20K to one lucky pizza expo attendee, but that’s exactly how the expo ended this year.

Time to Go Home and Recover from the Pizza Expo

So we’re putting the wraps on the 2008 International Pizza Expo. With joy in our hearts, fresh business cards in our pockets and the glorious aftertaste of primo Italian pie on our lips, we’re headed back home to the quality restaurant equipment that we love. And our families, of course, whom we love too.

Hopefully you saw us at the pizza expo and had a chance to meet us face to face. If not, well, heck, drop us a line to meet one of our restaurant equipment specialists. We’d love to chat with you about your pizzaria needs. We’ve got it all, from Eagle pizza dough racks to five-star Montague pizza ovens to Editor’s Choice Beverage-Air pizza prep tables.

We found video of the World Pizza Games (from the 2007 pizza convention) on YouTube. Watch and digest, preferably with a piping slice in your hands!

News Bites from the 2008 International Pizza Expo Convention in Las Vegas

Las Vegas Pizza Central, April 1, 2008 – A pizza convention? Yup, that’s where we’re at, a pizza convention! And not just any pizza convention, but the 2008 International Pizza Expo, the “largest pizza show in the world”! We’re here representing our restaurant equipment, especially our pizza-related products like Vulcan ovens, Beverage-Air pizza prep tables and Hobart mixers. It’s a tough job, but someone’s gotta do it.

Here at the Las Vegas Convention Center, it’s all about the ubiquitous Italian pie that’s known worldwide. Today is day one of the pizza convention, a massive collection of pizza talents and pizza products with 450 exhibiting companies (restaurant equipment retailers, restaurant marketing companies, and many national and local restaurants) 1000 exhibits, 60 educational sessions, Italian Chef Wars and the Pizza of the Year throwdown (part of Pizza Festiva). We’re seeing plenty of laughs, lots of friendly chatter and business cards flying from wallet to purse to wallet like a pizza-themed paper snowstorm.

Pizza Convention Games

Another big attraction at the pizza convention are the ever-popular World Pizza Games. When you gather thousands of pizza-making professionals in one giant Las Vegas convention hall, what better than to pit the best against the best to see who can earn bragging rights for his or her restaurant or kitchen?

The pizza convention’s games are being organized by the World Pizza Champions, Pizza Today, Pizza Expo and Tony Gemignani, a six-time World Pizza Acrobat. The convention games are four in number:

  • Freestyle Acrobatic Dough Tossing
  • Fastest Pizza
  • Largest Dough Stretch
  • Team Acrobatics

Each winner of a pizza convention game wins $1000, with lesser awards for second and third place in each category.

Register to Win a Custom Hobart Mixer!

One of our favorite manufacturers, Hobart, is giving away a custom-painted “hot rod” Hobart mixer at their pizza convention booth (#4105). The Hobart mixer will be awarded on Thursday just before the $20000 MEGA BUCKS drawing. (Hobart is also the official sponsor of the World Pizza Games.)

If quality restaurant equipment stirs your blood like it does ours, you don’t want to miss out on your chance at this incredible piece of pizza-making gear. If you’re at the pizza convention, get on down to the Hobart booth!

The Pizza Expo is a great event for pizzeria operators looking to expand their business and keep up to date with the latest in restaurant equipment such as the Garland pizza oven – the Garland GPD48, Hatco Heated Shelves for Pizza or Eagle cut and pack tables for pizza.

Third Annual International Pizza Expo

The third time is going to be a charm for the Pizza Expo. After debuting two years ago as The International Pizza Expo, the event has grown into “the show of show’s for the pizza industry”.

With more than 50 educational events, classes and seminars will cover topics such as building pizza sales, managing your workers, pizza marketing strategies as well as web development and internet marketing for pizzerias.

On the technical, and more delicious side, the Pizza Expo has classes on making a better pizza crust, making authentic Neapolitan pizza and the art of making fresh mozarella.
