This is a very long shot, I know, but has anyone ever had Vennaris Pizza in Columbia, MD??
It is similar to Mac and Manco's in NJ, but I would rate it slightly better than M&M.
I feel there is more flavor in the crust, and the sauce has more of a "bite" that I like.
Similar in that the sauce is put on top, and they surely use some cheddar.
It's been in Columbia for at least 20 years...
I would love for one of the experts here to try it, and try to clone.
