Here’s to Health, Homemade Pizza Dough, and Hunting Horcruxes



As the year comes to an end it’s rough for me to think that “Hot Tongue” will not be opening its doors in 2021. We have been at it for over a year and a half now.

I compare it to the way Harry Potter probably felt when he thought he just had to kill Voldermort, but then realized there were 7 horcruxes he had to somehow find and destroy.

That’s exactly how this process has gone. Instead of death eaters, we are dealing with time eaters.

It’s been such a big life lesson for myself and I wouldn’t take it back for anything.

If you need help with your shop in the future… I promise I will be more helpful than Dumbledore was to Harry.


Check out this recipe for a simple pizza dough! It should knock the socks off anyone.

Really simple, really tasty, just how I like it.


I am at home with a wife and baby who tested positive for Covid. I have yet to test positive myself, but I am sure the cron will get me.

It reminded me of a quote I have loved since high school.

“It is health that is the real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver.” – Mahatma Gandhi

Covid has been a monster and it’s another reminder about what is important.

Our health is truly one of the most precious currencies and can not be bought.

Let’s take care of ourselves and then each other. Happy New Year!


EXTRA SLICE: Pizza Hut needs to bring back their 90’S marketing team. These commercials were ahead of their time. I hope y’all party as hard as PIZZA HEAD this New Years Eve!

Love, crust, and pizza dust,
