A Little Extra Cheese…
It’s been thirty years since we answered that question and scribbled those simple thoughts about Fat Boys Pizza on the back of a napkin (our first marketing plan). I was a recent graduate of MSU, and along with a great education (Go Green), I knew a thing or two about making pizzas from having taken a few spins on the corporate dance floor. I figured going into business on my own, even if I failed, I would still be fed.
So Fat Boys Pizza came to be, and I still remember the look on the faces of my Father (an IBM executive) and Mother (homemaker extraordinaire) as I showed off my dough flipping skills in my post -graduate professional dress….jeans and a t-shirt. “This is what we get after four years of college?!” was written all over them. But none of us could ever have imagined that Fat Boys Pizza would become such a great source of pride for all of us thirty years later, and a journey of a lifetime for me. With memories being made pizza by pizza the script continues to be written, so with that, my Mother thanks you…my Father thanks you…and I thank you for making working in a t-shirt for a living so much fun!

Pre Cook Prep and Consideration:
How we going to heat this culinary delight you’re whipping up? You have to remember that your oven isn’t quite set up like ours over here at Fat Boys. Although we can set them to the same temperature the ovens are not the same. The Fat Boys oven applies heat (like a blow dryer) to the pizza allowing it to cook quicker whereas your conventional oven is just a heated box. The conventional oven tends to burn the outside while our hungry bellies wait for the inside to cook properly on a standard cookie sheet or tin. If you are a pizza aficionado, connoisseur or do this on a regular basis I would suggest the following cooking tips… Continue Reading ›
