The pizza was baked on a serving tray on the bottom rack starting at a 200 degree preheat turned up to 425 degrees for 15 minutes which is my trick to try to simulate a deck oven.  I could have left it in just a little longer, however.   ;D
Was this made with a parbaked crust?

Electric oven? When you turn the heat up to 425 does the broiler come on....

Pete,

Thanks for posting your whole process and the slice.  :) I never heard of that trick of yours to simulate a deck oven.  That is pretty cool!   8)

You didn’t answer the real question, did it taste like an old-time Papa Dino’s pizza.   :-D

What did you think of the Gangi sauce with your added ingredients?  Did that taste like Papa Dino’s?

Fresh dough, Bob, no parbake.   :)

My oven is about a five-year-old Kenmore (Whirlpool) and gas-fired.  No broiler action during preheat.   ;D

Gangi is definitely Papa Dino's original base sauce, Norma.  I could tell that as soon as I tasted it with my added ingredients.  At the market the other day, when the sauce was still a little icy, the flavor wasn't readily apparent but after it warmed up a bit, it was.   ;D

Does your gas oven have an upper broiler...

Oh yeah, Norma, and the pie does taste like an old-time Dino's.  I still might play around with the cheese mix a little more yet but it's pretty much there!!!   ;D

Yes it does, Bob, and it sucks!!!  LOL   >:(

I hate broiling under gas.  Electricity works much better there.   ;D

Pete,

I am glad that Gangi sauce is the sauce Papa Dino's used to use.  If I ever find more Gangi sauce I will give you some more.

I am also glad that your pie did taste like the old-time Papa Dino's pie.  I am ordering another cheddar to see if it might get us closer to Papa Dino's.  I will also see what happens with that.  Keep playing with your blend and let us know what happens.  ;)

Thanks, Norma!!!   :)

I know one thing, that this pizza has made me incredibly thirsty since I finished eating it.  That matches one of the side effects of the original Papa Dino's pizza for sure!!!  LOL  

We'll see if it produces another famous side effect tomorrow morning when I visit the upstairs library.  I might have to stock the bookshelf with a couple issues of Popular Science and several seed catalogs just in case.   ;)

My lovely wife Ann just got home from work, Bob.  She says the pizza smells just like Papa Dino's as well.   8)

LOL Bob!!!  The very first thing Ann ever said to me the day we met was, "I like your truck".   :)

I only found out later she had bought a Dodge Power Wagon Sno Commander new off the lot back in 1979 but the damage was already done.  My '78 has a four-speed and it's smogless, however.   ;D

I guess your lovely wife Ann used the pick-up line on you, “I like your truck”!  ;)

Maybe you were also know as the “Pick Up Man”.

There are so many truck songs, that I can’t remember them all.

Interesting that Ann also thought your home smelled like Papa Dino’s.   :)
