Similiar recipe for Vincent's pizza
« on: July 28, 2011, 08:28:40 PM »
i grew up eating at Vincent's Pizza Park in Pittsburgh & Irwin on special occasions, after concerts, or even just a family dinner on the weekends... unfortunately, i now live in atlanta & haven't been able to get home in over 5 years, thus i have the craving of a lifetime (not only for the indescribable flavor but for nostalgia purposes also). 

if anyone has any suggestions/tips or recipies similiar to theirs i would be forever grateful.

I grew up eating vincents too.  the secret is mixing in some smoked provolone with your mozzarella, 1/3rd is about right.     Other than that its just a basic NY style pizza, but on the thick side.   The lehmann dough, or many others would work great for this.    A little oil, sugar, and high gluten flour.   The sauce is simple basic NY uncooked tomato "sauce" not puree or crushed or whole peeled etc.   The cheese puts it over the top.   Good luck!
