The Duties of a Pizza Maker's Assistant

The Duties of a Pizza Maker's Assistant

The Duties of a Pizza Maker's Assistant. Today we spend a few words to answer a question that is often asked me by those who work in the world of pizzeria.

The question is the following: What are the duties of an assistant pizza maker? The answer to this question is very simple, and is contained in the title of this article, "Pizza chef helper".

The job that the assistant pizza chef should do

Help the pizza chef. And, just so, help the pizza chef in all his tasks. If you have chosen to employ an aid for the pizza chef, this is because the pizza chef has so much work to do that alone he cannot carry out all the tasks that are assigned to him.

So from the preparation of the dough to the preparation of the balls, to the preparation of the pizzas, to the dressing of the same, bake, take out and take care of the wood if you are working with a wood oven.

The Duties of a Pizza Maker's Assistant

I forgot something? well ... yes, you can easily add it to the list. The more time passes, the more the pizza chef's assistant learns the tricks of the trade and is able to overcome the various difficulties encountered along the way.

After a few years of helping pizza chef you can start looking for a job as a pizza chef, if you have acquired the necessary experience to be able to carry out the department on your own pizzeria.

Safety Shoes Pizza Chef Mandatory

Safety Shoes Pizza Chef Mandatory

Safety Shoes Pizza Chef Mandatory. As the title clearly says, safety shoes they are mandatory for a pizza chef and for all those who work in the kitchen.

From personal experience and because the law requires it, listen to me, buy a pair of these shoes if you work in the kitchen or if you intend to open your own pizzeria.

Why get a pair of safety shoes

It is known that those who work in the kitchen or in front of the oven are subject to various accidents, from hot oil to many objects that can fall on our feet, even heavy.

I've seen all the colors, pizza chefs in slippers, chef with ordinary tennis shoes, the list is very long, be serious and professional, equip yourself with these special shoes.

Safety Shoes Pizza Chef Mandatory

Why use them: it is known that those who work in the kitchen or pizzeria are on their feet many hours a day, this type of shoes as well as giving great relief to your feet, they will protect you from any type of accident or various slips.

Slipping into the kitchen is a large part of the accidents you may encounter. Comfortable and accident-proof shoes.

Shopping tips

Other choices

They are very comfortable for those who spend many hours on their feet

Spending many hours on your feet is really stressful, severe back pain is felt at the end of the day, swollen legs and so on and so forth.

That's why it's good to have a good pair of shoes to tackle a long day at work.

Rises Coming For Our Beloved Pizza

Rises Coming For Our Beloved Pizza

Rises Coming For Our Beloved Pizza. There seems to be no peace for our beloved pizza. Perhaps because of the war between Russia and Ukraine, or because of some speculators everything has shot up.

Flour has doubled in price in recent months, tomato and mozzarella due to the frightening fuel increases have risen in price, the same thing goes for all the ingredients that go on the pizza.

Rises in commodities

We want to talk about the power supply of the ovens? They are wood fired, electric or gas, just look at the latest bills to understand that everything has risen frighteningly.

So I have no doubts about the next increases that we will find when we decide to leave the house with the family to go and eat our pizza..

Rises Coming For Our Beloved Pizza

Even pizzerias that make home deliveries will be forced to adjust delivery prices, I don't know if you noticed, but gasoline costs more than two euros per liter.

Get ready dear friends pizza chefs and restaurant managers, remember that the first next expense will be to print new menus when we raise prices.

There is no more escape now

An old story comes to mind that starts with the dog trying to bite its own tail. This is the price to pay for "globalization".

Fortunately, for the moment the price of our professional practical courses to become a pizza maker have not yet undergone increases. Find out more about our practical courses follow this link.

How To Choose A Professional Course To Become A Pizzaiolo

How To Choose A Professional Course To Become A Pizzaiolo

How To Choose A Professional Course To Become A Pizzaiolo. Una delle domande frequenti che mi viene rivolta dai seguaci del mio sito interamente dedicato alla pizza è la seguente: Chef, how do i choose a good professional course to become a pizza chef?

Today I want to take some time to answer this question, it might sound complicated, but I assure you it is very simple.

The choice of the best professional pizza chef course

Among the many things that we will examine to make the right choice, one of the most important things is surely to ask how many people will participate in this course.

Know that the greater the number of participants, the less time will be dedicated to you personally. If you have to share knowledge with others 10 participants, I can imagine what your level of knowledge will be like at the end of the course.

How To Choose A Professional Course To Become A Pizzaiolo

I would also say a few words about who will be the master pizza maker who will preside over your course. I see "Masters" who pretend to be professionals, maybe very young with a few years of experience in the sector.

Do you really think that someone with a few years of experience can teach you this work or art? Pay attention to these details, don't be fooled.

Why choose one of our professional courses

Let's start by saying that our professional courses are individual, just you and the instructor that would be me. I see that all my students have different learning times, one is faster, another learns slowly. How is it possible to have a course that is the same for everyone?

Sono vecchio 🙂 e questo è sicuramente un punto a mio favore, o a favore dei miei corsi, 44 years of experience in the pizza sector are certainly worth something more than other courses you find around.

How To Choose A Professional Course To Become A Pizzaiolo

So here's what to do

Sign up for one of my professional practical courses (individual) to become a professional pizza maker. Come to my pizza school in Italy.

If you want to know everything about our practical courses, read all the information dedicated to this topic, follow this link

Conclusion

Ours is a real school, it is not a pizzeria disguised as a school. I exist, contact me and talk to me.

I'll meet you in a few days for other news on the world of pizza.

See you soon

Wanted Staff For Summer Season

Wanted Staff For Summer Season

Wanted Staff For Summer Season. I've been on television every night for about three months talk show entirely dedicated to the topic of personnel research.

Unfortunately, these bad TV shows are run by people who don't know this industry at all, you see the reporters earning the best of monthly salaries.

But it's all true?

Often the other party is never invited to these ridiculous TV shows, that is, who is really looking for work.

Sometimes I see some trade unionists, but alas, has never really worked or has never worried about looking for a seasonal job in his life.

Wanted Staff For Summer Season

How things really are? The writer has a very long experience of use in the summer seasons, I come from a place that thrives on tourism, so as not to bore you I will not go any further.

This morning I took a tour to visit old friends among the hundreds of hotels, restaurants pizzerias, chalet etc.. I just wanted to find out what the truth is.

Results

The best places, who are the ones who pay well have no staff problems. On the other hand, those with skimpy salaries find it more difficult to find staff.

Then there are those who offer work for just over a month, that is, July and August which are in difficulty. It is clear that two months of work are not enough for a boy looking for a seasonal job to make ends meet.

Staff Wanted For Summer Season2
Wanted Staff For Summer Season

to "get high

Given my no longer young age, I have many seasons in my memories, I assure you that it has always been like this, nothing has changed.

I have a good suggestion for all the pseudo journalists who fill our evenings with these pseudo talk shows: Tell your directors to invest a little money on some good movies to get a higher view, enough of this filth. We are not idiots.

Conclusions

As always, as every year, there has been a great demand for pizza chefs. If you are interested in learning this fantastic job (art), come to our pizza school, sign up for one of our practical pizza chef courses. You will find all the information here.

Employment is almost guaranteed and salaries are high. Do not waste time, see the calendar of the next scheduled courses. Clicca who.

Pizza with Tomato Mozzarella Bacon and Grilled Vegetables

Pizza with Tomato Mozzarella Bacon and Grilled Vegetables

Pizza with Tomato Mozzarella Bacon and Grilled Vegetables. Today in the laboratories of our "School of Pizzaioli" we have prepared a very special one.

Just like all. Grilled vegetables attract many customers, but they don't have a strong taste, marked. As an old friend of mine used to say, they are not suitable for the taste of smokers.

The pizza with bacon and grilled vegetables never disappoints

How to solve the problem? Simple, adding a special ingredient that gives our pizza that extra touch. I'm talking about the bacon.

Bacon, if cut into thin slices, in the few minutes that it is placed in the oven it can cook to perfection becoming a crispy and delicious crispy.

Pizza with Tomato Mozzarella Bacon and Grilled Vegetables

Preparation is very quick and easy. After having spread the disk of dough, spread a veil of tomato, I recommend not to overdo it, add the mozzarella, the grilled vegetables and finally add the bacon previously cut into thin slices.

Bake in your hot oven until it is perfectly golden. Remove from the oven and serve hot to your guests.

Video

Recommendations for presenting a good pizza

Before serving the pizza to your customers' table, I have to make a clarification. The pizza should never be cut into wedges before presenting it to the customer.

I often see pizzas arriving at the customer's table completely destroyed. The pizza should absolutely not be cut into wedges and then served. Have you ever seen a plate of shredded spaghetti served at the table? Be serious and professional.

Conclusions on pizza

You will find all these tips and tricks in our "Pizzaiolo Manual". In our manual you will also find all the tips together with suggestions for making a fantastic pizza. From the dough to the leavening. All information at this link.

Before saying goodbye, I wanted to remind you that my latest collection of recipes called: Not only pizza. Monuments of Italian cuisine present on all menus of good pizzerias around the world. All information here.
