Underground Wood-Oven Pizza-Delivery Service in La Ventana, Mexico
"... we were forced to sell and deliver our pizza as if it were drugs or another illegal commodity."
His tweet says, "Pizza in La Ventana," which I'm guessing is La Ventana, Mexico. I've emailed the flier person to get the intrigue-filled story, which appears after the jump. I love how he is advertising what seems to be a homemade pizza-delivery service via a flier.

It's true, we were making pizza in la ventana. I am currently in San Francisco any my friend is carrying the torch down there. Our pizza is a Sicilian-style and is cooked in an outdoor brick oven in our backyard. Pizza is uncommon that far south in Mexico and the "pizza" they try to sell is hardly pizza at all.
Our recipe for crust was passed on for generations and a guarded secret in my family, known for their guarded secrets. Inspired by our favorite pizza parlor proprietor, Dominic Di Fara, we got to work.
La Ventana is a gringo hangout highly regarded for its world-class kite surfing, so we already had a big niche market.
Unfortunately a rival pizza parlor, run by a vicious gang (rumored to have raped and killed a girl just down the road a year earlier) opened up and they threatened our families with violence if we continued selling our superior pizza so we were forced to sell and deliver our pizza as if it were drugs or another illegal commodity.
We delivered the pizzas both by car and by boat and it was about 45 minutes from stretching the dough to monetary exchange. We continue to get 4 to 5 orders a night, and people love our fresh green peppers.
