Being a college student enrolled at the University of Kentucky we are surrounded by cheap, amazing food and there seems to be two types of food that dominate the scope of variety easily accessed around campus...Burgers and Pizza. We have 3 locally owned burger joints and 5 pizzerias(Goodfellas, Pazzos, Mellow Mushroom, Slice of Chicago, and Mad Mushroom). With this said it is easy to fill your stomach for under 8 bucks, but being a student I am perpetually broke and sometimes this 8 dollars is harder to come by then one wight think so I have as I posted before resorted to making pizzas at home, in a home oven, using a stone. Now as many of you understand this does not mean a reduction in quality by all means, in fact I think my goodfellas clone pizza is just as good if not better now then the actual pizza as well as a couple of the other pizza joints around...Now I have set myself a goal and that is to clone mellow mushroom, pazzos, and goodfellas(already achieved). I have no moved on to the locally owned and operated Joint Pazzos. There dough has eluded and confused me since I have started making pizza...I have just recently nailed there flour(all trumps bromated) down as well as some of the ingredients for the sauce(escalon 6n1 and they had some primo gusto case...sauce or cheese idk?) They advertise a Wisconsin cheese and Im assuming its grande unless primo gusto cheese is from there... Slowly the puzzle pieces are falling together but yet one thing is missing and thats their coloration in the dough and crumb...It is a fairly dark brown/tan color that could be molasses, but when I attempted a pizza with 3% molasses it did almost nothing at all, and I don't think they are exceeding 3% because there dough doesnt really have a sweet/"cinnamony" taste too it...It could possibly be dianastic malt syrup/powder?
Needless to say I am obsessed with cloning these pizza to the point where it is cutting into my studying...and funds as I broke down and actually ordered 10lbs of AT Bromated flour from pennmac in hopes of successfully achieving the goal of cloning pazzos pizza...Again please any insight or info on what you think maybe the case would be outstanding...I again cant upload pictures but will as soon as I get the cord...will try but is Pazzo's Url maybe something there will help pazzospizzapub.com
