Brick oven Zzah

My cousin Brett made his famous "Zzah" (aka pizza) for us in a brick oven on Friday night. Everything from the crust to the sauce is made from scratch and it is amazing! And to make it even more delicious, he cooked it in a brick oven for the first time.

Brett is the chef wearing the bib-overalls; my dad is in in bright orange, my mom in light orange, Angelique is in green and Steve has his arms folded behind him.
The brick oven Brett used is at the "Vine House", which is the rental property that was purchased last month by 2X4 Property Management LLC. 2x4 Property Management is a joint venture between my parents (2 Sell's ) and us (4 Lindgren's). Brett came earlier this week to do some finish carpentry and was mesmerized by the brick oven on the patio. So, despite the rain, Brett hatched a plan with my parents and came to Fergus Falls on Friday to do some more work on the "Vine House". Brett fired up the oven around 3:00 PM in the afternoon and by 6:00 PM, we were eating his famous "Zzah". OMG, it was good! The brickoven does something totally amazing to the crust. There were only 6 of us and we ate almost 4 pizzas! Talk about full tummies. Thank you, Brett!!
