I weigh all ingredients (In grams we trust :)) so it doesn't matter which. You should too -- there's no greater aid to consistency.

16.98 grams are listed in the recipie I posted. It's my understanding that it will make a big difference if I ise regular salt vs kosher which isn't as powerful. Not sure what they were calling for

Nope, the difference is when you measure by volume. Kosher salt is fluffy, much less dense. One brand weighs about 1/2 as much as granulated, per teaspoon, but one gram of each has the same # of NaCl molecules.

Conducted a little investigation at pepes the other day. They were using sliced mozzerlla and laying some shredded to fill the gaps. They also claimed to use iced water when making the dough. They claimed that they now make it at the store. And the one I really don't buy is they claimed to make their own flour...  Haha

I make my own flour for 30-50% of it.

didn't you notice the wheat fields behind the shop?  But, it is possible that they have flour custom blended to their specifications.

it might be true, there is  a place in Southington or Cheshire that I know does mixes like muffin mixes, etc.  I think they  do custom blends for flour also

Not a bad idea with the sliced cheese , especially if you buy blocks.
