The bake time mentioned in the article I cited squares with what member bfx9 reported in Reply 172 at http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,7841.msg145168.html#msg145168 . Note that the pizza that bfx9 reported on went from the top oven to the lower oven.
Thanks for link to the post from bfx9. I see that squares with what you posted about the bake time and using the top oven first and then transferring the pizza to the lower oven. I know my deck oven won't bake exactly like De Lorenzo's, but do know that pizzas bake differently on my top deck.

is also interesting in my opinion. He posted that De Lorenzo's pizza dough was sold at Risoldi's market. I guess I am a little to late for that.
I also wonder what kind of machine was used to flatten the dough.
BTW, Rick didn't answer me back on facebook yet, but DeLorenzo's Tomato Pies did answer me back late last evening in a message.
This is what I asked on Friday and what DeLorenzo's Tomato Pies answered back.
Hello, I have tried to call your pizzeria two times and left two messages, but no one answers the phone and no one answers me. I wanted to ask one question if you have time to answer it. The question is what sizes of pizzas did De Lorenzo's have at the old Hudson St. location? I was just curious and had a running bet with someone about the sizes.
DeLorenzo's Tomato Pies:
Hi Norma, sorry about not getting thru on the phone. The pies on hudson st. were small and large. Hope u win the bet.
I then said and asked late last evening.
Hello DeLorenzo's. I just wondered what sizes the two pizzas were. My friend said he thought they might have been 13" and 16", but I said I haven't heard of too many 13" pizzas and maybe the small pizzas were 14" and 16”. I also wanted to ask you one other question. I tried to come to DeLorenzo's when I was at my friends place in Hamilton about 2 months ago. He didn't know the one DeLorenzo's was closed down and we tried to go there. We then went to your new location, but that wasn't opened until 5:00 PM. We then went to where a DeLorenzo's was supposed to be open at the one supermarket, but another pizzeria has taken over. To get to the point I didn't get to try any of DelLorenzo's pizzas in that visit and never did. My friend who is in his 70's has lived in Hamilton most of his life and he has tried all of the DeLorenzo's pizzas. He told me one other thing that made me think a little and that is my next question. He told me that some of the DeLorenzo's places use the same size dough balls for both sizes of pizzas. Is that true? Sorry to bother you again, but I hope to get to your new location when I visit my friend later in the fall.
I will wait and see if I get another message from DeLorenzo's Tomato Pies.
Trenton Bill told me to come to Trenton this coming weekend to see if we can find out more about De Lorenzo's pizzas, but I told Bill I have to start getting stuff ready for an event I have to do outside at market.
