Sea going pizza maker

This photograph exhibits the reality of life for a U.S. Navy culinary specialist on an aircraft carrier. Much of your time on watch is spent repeating the same task over and over. I counted six sheet pans of pizza in each upper convection oven.

With two pizzas per sheet pan, Seaman Beverley has 24 pizzas in the oven. Another 24 pizza pre-baked shells in the stack stand ready for the oven. More product awaits on the right side of the picture. I suspect Seaman Beverley worked up to half of her 12-hour shift on pizzas on last Saturday.

PHILIPPINE SEA (Nov. 3, 2012) -- Culinary Specialist Seaman LaDecha Beverly, from Pittsburgh, prepares pizzas in the galley aboard the aircraft carrier USS George Washington (CVN 73). George Washington and embarked Carrier Air Wing 5 provide a combat-ready force that protects and defends the collective maritime interest of the U.S. and its allies and partners in the Asia-Pacific region.
