...oh, my... what have I gotten myself in to???
My initial feeling is that the pizza now is not as crisp as it used to be, especially in the middle section, almost soggy by time you get to your second slice. My husband keeps telling me I should get a job there to learn how to make it. I'll see if I can dig out Wes's contact info and see if he will share with me - it's been a while.
Have a good day!
This thread didn’t start out as a reverse engineering thread, or a clone thread, but that is the way it evolved. When trying to duplicate a pizza business pizzas it can take a lot of work and we try to get as much information as we can. Peter can do the complicated stuff, which I can't.
Thanks for the information about your feeling that the pizza now is not as crisp as it used to be, especially in the middle. Steve and I noticed that on the Buddy pizza I purchased, but thought it was just from us not reheating it right.
You will be able to tell us if you try one of the Buddy’s clone formulations if the Buddy’s clone tastes like a Buddy’s pizza used to. Also if you ever purchase a real Buddy’s pepperoni and cheese pizza would you mind weighing it for us as soon as you could. Don’t go to any special trouble, but if you ever do purchase a 4-square cheese and pepperoni pizza that information would be helpful. Do you also know if Buddy’s sells any of their dough balls anymore. I think they might have in the past, but don’t know about now.
Don’t get yourself into any problems with trying to get information from Wes. It really isn’t necessary.
It really helps on a thread like this one, or the Buddy’s thread, if someone has tried their pizzas different times. You don’t have to get involved if you don’t want to.
