Episode 3 - Planet Pizza

This episode explores how burgers the size of dinner plates followed by massive 62 inch pizza’s feed a packed Texan crowd, including a team of rowdy roller derby girls, at Big Lou’s Pizza!

In San Antonio, just a few miles from The Alamo, Big Lou’s pizza and pasta restaurant proves everything really is bigger in Texas. Serving burgers fifteen times bigger than a Big Mac and a pizza five feet wide, demand for their super-sized food is just as BIG.

Opened in 2000 by Brian Lujan, his five table business has grown to seat more than a thousand. Each night his kitchen staff cook hundreds of pizzas in all shapes and sizes – going through nearly a ton of dough and mozzarella in the process.

On top of the massive rush of customers, Brian also has to contend with the local, girl’s roller derby team, who have ordered the 62” pizza with all the trimmings. The pressure is on not only to cook enormous food but to satisfy all his customer’s enormous appetites.

Keeping up with the relentless orders takes a monumental operation. Each part of the Big Lou’s Big kitchen runs like a giant well-oiled machine. With enormous pizzas going out every 20 seconds there is no time to catch their breath.

By the time Brian and his team serve the Alamo City Roller Derby girls their 5 foot BBQ brisket pizza, Big Lou’s is heaving with so many customers, local police are standing by to keep law and order!
