1.2.3. Changing Beliefs, Challenging Ideas, and One Badass Pizza Oven

Three quick bites to enhance your pizza game


I think beliefs, opinions and ideals should be worn like clothes, easy to get rid of when they no longer suit you.

My belief in what a healthy work environment is, what I expect from a team, how I should cook and when and how to communicate has changed over and over through the years. What I believe is a great way to run a kitchen might be scoffed at by another. Some may disagree with my methods or attitude. I act like I don’t care when someone believes what I do, think, or cook is wrong, stupid or gross.

Truth is, I let it get to me quite a lot…It’s something that I’m really working on.

I would love to be someone unaffected by the opinions, comments, or projections of others. To live without any kind of argument. To fully listen and understand everyone instead of judging, interrupting, or thinking about what I am going to say next. To become a girl-with-no -name…to just be.

I don’t know how long this is going to take me but it’s something I will achieve.


The Halo Versa 16 is a badass pizza oven.

Check out this unboxing we did last week that shows you all the bells and whistles!


“Thinking is difficult, that’s why people judge.”

Carl Jung

It’s always harder to put the time in… to do the work… and yes to think. I constantly try to challenge my skills, and more recently, my thoughts & opinions.

Comfort and complacency are the death of creativity and growth. I will never sacrifice my ability to grow or create for anything.

Love, crust, and pizza dust,

Alex Koons
