Goodyear AZ (Low 44 Sunny High 82)

Where there is a will there usually is a way. Before we began full-timing we really liked the take and bake pizzas from Papa Murphy's, especially the thinner deLite crust. Unfortunately the deLite crust measures 14 inches (large) which is too big for our convection oven. The 4 times we used the propane oven in 4 years was for the deLite Papa Murphy pizza. We had their pizza more often but went with regular crust and medium sized since it fit in the convection.

When we got rid of the propane oven for the dishwasher we thought that our deLite pizza days was over for awhile. Then Jo hit upon the idea to cut the pizza in half and cook it that way. To be brutally honest Bob wasn't so sure and resisted the idea until we tried it recently. Just another case of Bob being wrong, you'd think he would be used to it by now :-)

Didn't think to take a before picture but here is the pizza cut in half, toppings rolled back so the crust in the middle could be rolled up and form a crust line. Bob's days working at Pizza Hut all those years ago were not a waste.

We then cooked it, a Greek Pepperoni pizza, in the convection and it was wonderful. 

You'd think Jo would get tired of being right but she isn't :-)

Till next time,

Bob and Jo


  1. Well aren't you clever? I would never have thought of that. Good idea and thanks for sharing.

  2. You go Jo...we gals need to stick together.

    We love pizza. The perfect meal for any day!

  3. I got a really great Pizza oven for Christmas. It sits on the counter top and heats really hot. But it too has a small size. Cutting down the pizza seems like the logical approach.
