I tried this again but I've been experimenting with non-diastatic extract so I substituted 1% of sugar for 1% of the extract.  I also used corn oil instead of vegetable oil.  Its really close, but not thick enough with that slightly fluffier upper pillow of bottom crust.  Any ideas?   

Flour (100%):
Water (50%):
IDY (.15%):
Salt (1.5%):
Corn Oil (10%):
Sugar (1%):
Non-Diastatic Barley Malt Syrup (1%):
Total (163.65%):
227.93 g  |  8.04 oz | 0.5 lbs
113.96 g  |  4.02 oz | 0.25 lbs
0.34 g | 0.01 oz | 0 lbs | 0.11 tsp | 0.04 tbsp
3.42 g | 0.12 oz | 0.01 lbs | 0.71 tsp | 0.24 tbsp
22.79 g | 0.8 oz | 0.05 lbs | 5.07 tsp | 1.69 tbsp
2.28 g | 0.08 oz | 0.01 lbs | 0.57 tsp | 0.19 tbsp
2.28 g | 0.08 oz | 0.01 lbs | 0.33 tsp | 0.11 tbsp

The past couple have been from GFS.  I didn't really pay attention to the brand before I split it into smaller bags but I think it was part skim.

The upskirt pix on this page, and esp. reply 136, look exactly like Aurelio's.

I totally know what you mean about some elusive flavor in the crust that is missing, too.

I just talked with my buddy who worked there for many years. The dough is water, flour, yeast, salt, sugar, and oil. He cant remember the ratios anymore. The cheese is 1 part Chellino Scamorza pizza cheese, to 2 parts Mozzarella. There is no cheddar or anything like that.

Good to know.  The question most of us have is how we replicate the flavor of unobtainium Chellino Scamorza.  That's where some of the cheddar or asiago ideas have come into the mix.

That's easy, just move to Chicago. The stuff is at all the small Italian shops.

Garvey,

I'm sure the Scamorza can be ordered online.  If you are looking to duplicate you need to buy a smoked mozzarella.

I've had it before and believe me it ain't no magic bullet. I think Ed's Cheese mail orders it. got mine from a member that wasn't too impressed with it and passed it along to me. Don't get me wrong...it's good stuff, probably the best "blender" i have added but I think it is pretty pricey as I recall.

I don't care for it personally.
