    I just googled them and they run over 3 grand and that doesn't include the wood needed to fire them up.

      we no longer get take out (and the take out places we used to frequent are  terrific New Haven-style establishments) because we can do better at half the cost.

      I hadn't expected this since some of those places are exceptional.  Will do a diary on pizza-making soon.  But I will have to think about it with respect to food stamps.

      We seem to have a lot of good and enthusiastic cooks here at dKos and I am thinking that perhaps a group might start thinking and writing with the kitchen equipment and budget constraints of the just barely getting by in mind.

      Not that the just barely getting by are usually in a position to read us, but if the result is worth it, we could flog it to the coops and food banks.

      Just thinkin'.

      Real plastic here; none of that new synthetic stuff made from chicken feathers. By the morning of 9/12/2001 the people of NYC had won the War on Terror.

        She runs a great group called Practical Survivorship and Sustainable Living. All about how to get by despite all the little things life throws at you.

        Pizza was originally one of the wonderful Italian ideas on how to feed the max number of people on the minimum number of lire... leftover bread dough, a little cheese, some tomato sauce.  

        Gourmet pizza came a lot later
