The cheese is worth the trip, and the price wasn't even bad.  That Bacio is good cheese. It's got that texture thing going for it that I like.  No cheddar used in bake today.

Cento Certified, but not the preferred ones in the 35oz can. Still was good. Not as good as Mutti crushed.

I screwed up the bake on a couple fronts. Not much of a crunch. nice texture otherwise. Everything else worked out fine.

Here's a duplicate pick from another thread where I was asking about dough and mixing techniques.


Maybe they should just make white T-shirts with pizza juice stains already on them.

Faaaantastic pepperoni pie Roy....real nice!   :chef:

If you are interested here is the 35oz. ROA1 code Centos. Works out to $4.33 per 35oz. can...I think the price was lower last time I ordered.  >:(

Thanks, Bob.  :)

What's the difference between those and these cans I get two miles away?

   Your link costs about 120% more.  >:(

Seriously though, Craig turned me on to the ROA1 code cans back when I was buying the "Certifed" ones. They taste the same to me.  ;)


What pepperoni did you use on your last pie Roy? Have you tried any of the meat you got at Capri....I'm heading over there today and never even payed attention to any of their sausage.  I once asked them to get me some Grande!  :-D

It's still frozen. Not tried it yet. If you're going there and like sun-dried tomatoes, the ones in a small jar with a name of "Sigillo di gara......." (sticker ripped) and another part that says, "Mediterranea", are fantastic. I cut some up and sprinkled them on top of a bake Sunday. Nice!

That's the plain 'ol Hormel. I know popular name brands are voodoo round here sometimes, but I've always liked it.

It looks like Centos does packaging changes for every crop and every region they get tomatoes from.

I don't care what these people 'round here think!   >:D

OK, so the centos on day two was much closer to the mutti's than recently reported. Perhaps the higher temps were needed? 465F inside oven yesterday to a bit above 600F today. Same, bright flavor that Mutti's had.

The new cheese worked equally as well, btw.

Have you tried the Great Value(Wally)crushed Roy?

Nope, but I've seen mention of them. Are they good?

I do like the Tutorosso that BJ's sells, but only the ones they sell. Some of the others stink. The good ones can be found at HT, too, but grab the wrong one and you're fixing the meat sauce you made for an hour after it should have been done.  >:(

     Very little difference between GV and the Mutti.....try it and you will see.


I have never had a good Tutorosso product.

I will do that. thanks for the tip.

I've had some bad ones. Even these will have a bad batch or two where it's too watery. I've gotten that with other brands, too. Cheap ones.
