Great link. I got a bunch of recipes to try from the Encyclopizza site. I have been trying to come up with homemade pizza sausage that would compete with what I ate at Papa Del's in Champaign IL back in October, so I could enjoy good pizza here in San Diego. I was there when he first opened in the early 70's and have never had a pie so good ever again. I miss it so much!
Sometimes I just look at our pictures of those pizzas and feel very sad that I am so far away.
I will certainly never be able to duplicate it, but if I come up with something I like nearly as well that I can make at will, I will be happy. I am still pretty far off, but look forward to trying some of the other recipes from THIS site as well.
One place in Rancho Bernardo, DiCrescenzo's, has a very good sausage that is the style of Papa Del's, but could use some tweaking. They are a 45 minute drive away though. Closer than Champaign, and they have a really nice pizza.
I haven't been to NYC in 40 years, and have never even had pizza there. I wish LA had some good pizzas to try...I have to check that out...because that isn't too too far away. I've eaten most of the pizza in San Diego, and nothing is as outstanding as Papa Del's for some reason, or the places I grew up eating. Maybe your first pizza is your best pizza. I am beginning to think that.
