Comments: At the time of inspection, time as a public health control was not implemented correctly within the facility. The pizza, stuffed crust, and parmesan cheese were all observed without time marks. As a result, a re-inspection will occur on or after 4/22/2022 to ensure time procedures are being implemented and used correctly. Keep in mind that the time starts as soon as the dough is removed from the walk-in cooler. It was determined that from now on facility policy will require stuffed crust and “crazy bread” to be kept under refrigeration until use (41F or below).

Develop proper time procedures for the Parmesan cheese. These procedures will be verified for accuracy and completeness upon re-inspection. Handouts created by the owners will be sent to help facilitate this process.
