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

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

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.   :)

HMMMM Norma, that tune could be rocked up a little bit.  Maybe someone wil do a heavy metal version someday.  LOL   :)

I'm just an ordinary average guy, however.  My friend's got a Chrysler, I've got a Dodge...



I also pick up the dog doo and hope that it's hard.   :-\

I think now, with the Gangi sauce and cheese I have left, I'll just make little experimental pizzas just to try to tweak that cheese mix a little bit.   ;D

Here's a scan of the New Bridge label for comparison...

EDIT:  Looks just like the Nutrition Facts label for Land O' Lakes...

Pete,

Thanks for posting the picture of the New Bridge Brick Cheese Nutrition Facts.  :) I see the New Bridge Brick Cheese does have a decent amount of fat.

Brick and mozzarella, brick, mozzarella, and Swiss, and just brick.  I think I got it close to being right the first time...  LOL   ;D

Thanks, Norma!!!  The cheese mix still requires some fine tuning but I certainly didn't have any trouble properly disposing of any of these experiments.  LOL   :)

The melted brick by itself tastes somewhat like a typical processed American such as Clearfield but not exactly.  I might have to try some of that aged Nasonville cheddar at some point just to be sure the brick is right.   ;D

How did you like the one with Swiss....

They were all good, Bob.  Right now I'm sticking with brick, provolone, and Swiss as the proper constituents of the mix.  My next experiments will involve adjusting the proportions of each.   :)

The combos with mozzarella did remind me a bit of Papa Dino's in the later years so maybe at one point they did switch up the cheeses a bit.  Who the heck knows?  LOL   ;D

Salted mix of 60% mozzarella, 30% brick, and 10% Swiss with pepperoni along with no mustard and mayonnaise.  This one was really, really good!!!...   ;D
