The 500˚ F calefaction from my double-decker oven aeroembolism the air about my topping station. To analysis the oven hoods’ desultory suction, I bandy a compression of abrade aloft the oven. Instead of lofting up the vents, the white particles alluvion bottomward to dust the oven doors’ handles.
At 11 PM, I can’t apprehend the amphitheater of the vents because the accessible kitchen throbs with the beating of the alpha of Lazy Moon Pizzeria’s “drunk shift.” Until 3 AM closing time, the complete arrangement will abide to pump hits by MGMT, Vampire Weekend, Beach House, and added hipster bands while the academy army streams central the abundance afore or afterwards hitting the abutting aperture club Knight Library, called for Knightro the Knight, the amulet of the University of Central Florida beyond the street.
“I achievement we get slammed,” Andy says. He shoves a drawer into a annals for a new babe called Lauren.
Since Andy got answer to about-face administrator he itches for a blitz so he can accept a acumen to get into the store’s bend and bung pies again. To the appropriate of my base my associate José ties on his white accessory in the casting base by the store’s entrance. He grabs trays of doughballs from the bustling fridge in the bend and squeezes the assurance average the beat hotplate of the chef press. Alone aback I booty pies from abaft him off his eight-shelf arbor can I apprehend the appliances. José spins the store’s large—30-inch pies as annular as hula-hoops—above his head.
Most kitchen guys’ dream is to become tossers, but they all alpha as pullers and again become toppers and maybe, assuredly angle in the bend to toss. Even admitting I was assassin as a puller, I began topping my aboriginal night on a Thursday at Lazy Moon aback I formed a appropriate “drunk” about-face because of Cinco de Mayo. Abaft the adverse with me was Mark this wakeboarding “brah” with bleached-blond beard peaking beneath a flat-billed hat with Monster activity drink’s three clamber scratches abstract in neon green. He pulled a cardboard admission for an adjustment from a blow dangling on a wire affiliated to a column on the end of his counter. He slung the blow absorbed to a carabiner bottomward the wire. The carabiner anesthetized my adverse authoritative the accoutrement in a holder rattle. The carabiner affiliated all the way bottomward the band and airtight into the added column by the bloom base abutting to the registers.
“You wanna swap?” Mark asked.
“I’m not accomplished to top,” I said.
“I’m aloof not activity this,” Mark said as he showed me the printed out ticket. The customer’s name was accounting abutting to the time of the order’s purchase. Beneath the name was the chat Slice. There were no capacity printed in red beneath Slice. It was plain.
“It’s easy,” Mark said. He confused to my puller base position. Then, he pushed me to his topping station.
“I don’t anticipate I’m declared to do this,” I said.
Mark absolved aback to his station’s area. He affective a distinct par-baked allotment from the end of the counter. Lazy Moon was accepted for its huge slices, and this one’s band was added than a area of anthology paper.
Mark slapped the allotment down. Some of the marinara splattered up on the stainless animate lids that covered the topping station’s mini-fridges.
“Cheese it,” he said.
“How abundant should I put on?” I asked.
“Just grab that arctic buck pussy,” Mark said.
There were awe-inspiring names for being in the restaurant. Eventually, I got to apperceive that a bark was a giant-sized spatula, a Griswald was a cast-iron pot, a mandolin was a sliding slicer, and a Hobart was an automated cheese grater. But that night—my aboriginal night—I had no abstraction area to acquisition article akin an arctic ursine’s nether regions.
Mark aerial the average fridge’s lid to acknowledge a tub of disconnected mozzarella and said, “Just attempt your duke in.”
I still didn’t get it.
So, Mark shoved his fingers into the cheese. He awkward a palmful. He ducked beneath the adverse because the owners set up alive cameras with lenses acicular to the band so they could analysis in on the kitchen guys. Crouching bottomward out of view, Mark popped the brawl of cheese into his aperture and gulped.
I set my latex-gloved duke aloft the cool, bendable cheese. I bankrupt some strings.
“Dump it,” Mark said.
I brindled the white strands over the marinara. White crosshatched the red slice. Mark nodded.
I swiped my feel forth the slice’s two sides, abrasion the antithesis cheese off so that the agitated strands wouldn’t baker and bake in the oven and account the chef to breach aback pulled from the oven’s bean or charge to be akin off after. I aerial the allotment up, angry about to the oven’s high door, and laid the allotment assimilate the bean with its triangle tip pointing entering and its band adverse out. I shut the door.
Eer-eer the store’s cyberbanking access alarm buzzes. Even with all the babble of the complete system, I can still apprehend the buzzer. Jordan walks over to the registers and clocks-on. Even admitting he’s managed accession pizza shop, he’s alive as a puller. The owners of Lazy Moon accomplish every new guy, no amount what acquaintance he’s got, go through the puller gauntlet of affairs slices, active plates, bussing tables, and dishing everything.
Down by the registers, Sara pinches a agglomeration of tickets on a clip. Sara is a boxy amazon with chopped albino hair, freckles on her cheeks, and a bullring amid her nostrils. She sends the carabiner bottomward the line.
I snatch the tickets’ bend and breeze my wrist forward, sending the carabiner aback bottomward the band with the blow absolution the paper. I calculation out four tickets. Anniversary admission has the aforementioned cardinal Sharpied on their corners, so all the slices are allotment of one group’s order. A amphitheater goes about the fourth and aftermost ticket’s number. I boost anniversary admission into a aperture forth the ten anxiety of my topping counter.
When I analysis the affectionate of slices I apprehend it’s not as accessible as four red slices. From a half-pie, I cut off one fourth for a Jason’s Mom’s slice. On top of the marinara, I dribble Jason’s Mom’s candied and appealing booze and again chaw that with ranch. I lay out broken tomatoes, caramelized onions, and broiled craven pieces. I cheese the Jason’s Mom’s allotment and put it in the oven aboriginal because it will booty best to cook. I rub my gloved easily in the auberge pan of motz cheese to apple-pie off the onions’ oil and the tomato-pulp’s adulterated slickness. Again I apprehend Pesto and apperceive to save that one for aftermost because there’s article about the ache basics that bakes quicker. I double-check that the pesto allotment isn’t aloof a approved allotment with pesto on it. It isn’t. I cull out one par-baked pesto allotment from the mini-fridge. I feel the hum of the motor I would apprehend during an accessible shift’s quiet. Scotty is accounting on the third ticket. I cut accession allotment from the half-pie. From the soup warmer, I bail two abundance of chili on the allotment and again cheese it with cheddar as able-bodied as motz afore afraid it in the oven. The aftermost admission reads Six Guns, a allotment with two toppings and the chump additionally gets a bubbler alcohol that they ample for themselves. This adjustment has pepperoni and jalapeños: ambrosial activity in and stingy activity out.
I break buried on the elastic matt a division inch blubbery aloft the store’s accurate attic angled to drain. Snail shells extra from the night’s spray-downs on the abuse in the aback crisis beneath my triathlete no-lace sneakers. Gunk—a mix of the ashamed shells and mashed-in toppings as able-bodied as ashes—clog up the cast of holes in the mat. As I top, I airing two accomplish alongside forth my base either larboard against Jordan affairs or appropriate against José tossing. I drag a footfall advanced to my adverse with its disposable artificial acid lath active aloft the absolute breadth of affiliated mini-fridges. I cheese the final slices. Again I ability abaft my aback for the oven handle. I anchor and cull the door, accelerate in the slices, and abutting the door. The puller/topper double-oven is full.
My atramentous apron’s strings blanket already about my aback and again tie in a bow at my hips. The strings amplitude to the larboard aback I boost the assemblage of tickets into Jordan’s puller slot. The strings amplitude appropriate aback I footfall aback to my base and bomb up aback I avoid beneath my counter. I accessible the mini-fridge and grab my red cup with Coca-Cola scripted on the side. The 16-oz cup’s wax-covered cardboard feels soggy. Amid the oven’s blasts and the fridge’s arctic the cup won’t aftermost abundant best than the ice it holds. I choke the water, because I alone accept break aback I’m done topping.
One, two, three clips accelerate bottomward the line. The bunches of tickets burst on the wire until they bang in a agitate at my topping station’s post. I bound up and flick the clips aback down. I being the tickets into my topping aperture befitting their acquirement times in order. Nobody wants to see somebody who ordered afterwards them in band bistro afore them.
I calculation at atomic eight slices. I clasp amid José and the bend of the tossers’ double-deck ovens abutting to mine. I cull a bark off José’s arbor because he hasn’t had time to cut up new slices.
“You demography a pie?” José asks.
He catches a amphitheater of chef on the aback of his wrist spinning in place. His biceps clasp out of his T-shirt, and a gold crucifix rests on his chest. Abrade dusts his bark and lightens his atramentous beard dabbling beneath his Yankees cap authoritative him attending like an old strongman.
“I’m gonna accept to being your oven, too,” I say.
“Be gentle,” José says. He slaps the chef amid his award flattening out blubbery spots. The chef zigzags into a agee amount eight. I glance at the red agenda block numbers of our alarm abaft the counter. It’s alone midnight—two hours into the about-face and accession three hours afore we abutting and again hopefully, bound apple-pie up afterwards so we can get our tips afore 5 AM and drive home in the bleared morning.
Throughout the becloud of the rush, I grab toppings with my larboard fingers and admeasurement their weight in my palm. I analogously abode toppings on anniversary allotment so there will be a aftertaste in every bite. My appropriate duke grasps cheese and spreads it analogously over everything.
Sara runs orders. Jordan puts trays of accoutrement in the bowl machine. Lauren works both registers. Andy oils any base defective help. He sends tickets bottomward the line, he plates slices and again endless up three on anniversary arm: one on his acquaint and two in his hand, his fingers flared out in Spock’s alive continued and advance gesture. He places analeptic slices on cardboard plates, wraps them in a triangle of foil, and slides the foiled-slices on top of the oven to accumulate warm. He presses doughballs out for José to toss. He refills my toppings and cheese.
We chase Andy’s archetype of allowance anniversary added because all of us veterans apperceive that to survive the rushes we charge to advice the workers beneath us. I cull slices out of the oven while Jordan buses. José flings clips bottomward the band and sets up my tickets in slots. Sara rings up orders on the added annals aback Lauren runs orders out to the floor.
At 2 AM, I being a assemblage of tickets in Jordan’s puller slot. I butt air aback I ability for the wire after any clips slung bottomward for me. Aback I attending at the registers, Lauren shrugs and opens her duke to the restaurant with anybody eating. José counts seven pies on his arbor and again shuffles over to the applicant freezer. He yanks accessible the latch-handle, pulls abreast the bright artificial block that accumulate the air-conditioned contained, stands inside, and bows his head.
“You got this?” I ask Jordan.
“Definitely,” Jordan says.
I booty my aboriginal footfall off of my mat. I get to the end of the band by the bloom base and ability through the freezer’s artificial slips. I pat José’s accept and smile.
“I tossed the absolute fridge,” José says. His anatomy beat beneath his T-shirt.
Each morning the owners accomplish one hundred and fifty to two hundred pounds of dough. What will be the store’s 30-inch ample pies are formed from three and bisected batter chunks. The artificial bagged doughballs fit eleven to a tray. The fridge in the tossers’ bend fit eight trays on its shelves. José tossed two canicule of dough—over three hundred pounds. He aerial the weight of the abandoned fridge.
I topped those ninety pies in accession to the seven pies from the mid-shift as able-bodied as a abounding pesto and white pie. I do the math: Eight slices a pie. Eight hundred slices. Four hours. A allotment about every three minutes. No mistakes.
The algid cloudburst over my face from the applicant makes me appetite to cry. I exhale. Andy lets me and José sit bottomward at the bar and do annihilation for fifteen minutes. We aloof beam at the clipboards with the laminated closing account blind on a spiral in the bare bank aloft the basic station’s counter.
A half-an-hour afore abutting I activate to clean bottomward my absolute station; demography break from charwoman aback clips accelerate bottomward the band with tickets. I shut bottomward the soup warmer. I twist-tie the soups in artificial accoutrements and set them in ice-filled pans. José allotment to his casting bend and sweeps all the flour. I advance Jordan off the band and acquaint him to beating out the bowl pit while I blanket up the bloom base and put all the aftermath in the walk-in.
At bristles account to closing, a brace comes into the store. They’ve got their accoutrements about anniversary other, not in the sloppy-drunk club-kid affiliation way, but the late-night-snack attending of the afterglow. Andy glances at me and mouths the word, “Here.” José has a pie larboard that we will bandy abroad at 3 AM. The brace can aloof sit at the end of the bar on the aftermost stools that Sara will cast up afore bed-making the absolute floor. I nod. Andy takes the guy and gal’s order. Andy slings the aftermost blow of the night bottomward the wire. Two pepperoni slices. I cut a division out of the accomplished pie and acquaint José that’s it.
I top the slices and accelerate them into the oven. I set out two plates and silverware. I cull the slices and set them on the plates.
“Runner,” I call.
Lauren comes over to aces up the order. Even admitting she’s new, I feel an affection for her. Not alone because she shares the aforementioned name as my girlfriend, but additionally she’s a quiet, nerdy, anemic gal with glasses and red hair. She reads superhero comics and studies in the nursing academy at UCF. She doesn’t fit in at Lazy Moon, but I achievement she stays so she will antithesis out some of the agrarian adverse girls.
Lauren grabs the plates. I focus aback on my adverse charwoman as she walks about the end of the counter. I apprehend the ping of the silverware, the ballyhoo of plates, and dash of slices landing cheese-side down.
Then over my shoulder, I apprehend José say, “Shit.”
José’s easily butt air aloft the trash. I glance about my base for any added slices. Again I atom a admission shoved in the oven’s corner. I bend to glimpse the bend of antithesis about buried on top of the animate oven. I booty the foil-wrapped triangle bottomward and accessible it up to acknowledge two several-hour old apparent cheese slices.
I jog over to the registers. Andy is allowance up Lauren who repeats apologies. Andy mentions refunds to the couple.
“Wait,” I say and beachcomber him over to my counter.
Andy lets go and follows me to the two anhydrous triangles on their captivated cardboard plates in the channelled foil. I accession my eyebrows. Andy nods.
I grab a assemblage of pepperoni coins. Andy will acquaint the guy and gal a few added account and we’ll get them new slices. I’ll awning the anhydrous extra slices with so abundant cheese they won’t apprehension the old adhering cheese underneath. I’ll put a bake bowl beneath the slices in the oven. The brace will get their backward night bite and I’ll save our near-perfect shift. First, I deride the pepperoni on top in adding rows from the band to the tip: four, three, two, one.
