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”. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lXmYa28H2T0

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

Norma

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

Yeah, so much for that plan.  LOL  I might try subbing longhorn for the brick next time since that was supposedly a part of the Papa Dino's cheese mix according to a rumor I first heard way back when.   ;)

Pete,

Looking forward to the day I can taste a slice of the old Papa Dino's pizza.   ;D  Thanks for thinking of me.  :)

Thanks, man!!!   :)

Once I mix all the cheeses together, Bob, I merely add additional salt to it.  Norma pointed out the dough itself wasn't all that salty but historically, the pizza altogether has been so the salt has to be included somewhere.  The characteristic Papa Dino's salty twang that occurs on the tongue when the cheese and pepperoni are taken in the same bite is what pretty much confirmed this for me, especially with that last clone I made.   ;D

Norma

You bet, Norma!!!   I'm all stocked up on mozzarella, white Colby longhorn, and Swiss so let the next round of experiments begin...  LOL   8)

I've used mozzarella and Colby together before but not with Swiss.   ;D

Pete,

Good luck in trying mozzarella, Colby and Swiss together.   ;D  If, and when I get to Papa Dino's again, I am going to try to find out what that big block of cheese was.  I think it was cheddar.  Maybe someone could even call and see if they would tell what kind of cheese that was.   8) :-D

Thanks, Norma!!!  Yeah, I want to go back and look at that cheese block picture again, myself.   :)

Next, I'll try more mozzarella and less Colby.  A mix of 40% mozzarella, 40% Colby, and 20% Swiss did produce the correct translucent "slime" but maybe just a little too much of it...  LOL   ;D

I had a  translucent "slime" pizza in Lewisburg NC today while piking up an auto part. Friendly 'lil town. The crust was burnt worse than a Jack's cooked on high though... >:(

Pete,

Lol, about the correct translucent slime.  :-D  Do you really know what cheese Papa Dino’s used years ago?  If Papa Dino’s modeled their pizzas after the boardwalk pizzas it sure makes me wonder if they did use more than one cheese on their pizzas.  I really don’t know about that though, but the pizza I had at Papa Dino’s did have about the right cheese taste to me.
