Norma and Steve,
In one of my earliest MM clone experiments, I compared a slice of one of my MM clone pizzas against a part of the slice of the Florida MM pizza that I had saved. I, too, thought that the two slices were virtually indistinguishable. In my case, I even compared bites of the two slices, side by side with my eyes closed. I wasn't sure what to make of this other than to believe that maybe the MM clone formulation I came up with was in the ballpark. When I went back this morning and compared that dough formulation with what Norma and I have been using, surprisingly it has changed very little (at that time I was using only molasses and no added sugar). But the technical side of me says that the only true test is to do side by side comparisons of two freshly baked pizzas. Since that is not something that one can do in an MM store, the closest method for comparison tasting purposes might be to purchase an MM pizza, bring it home, and eat it side by side with a home version. Of course, this test works better if one is near an MM store so that the MM pizza doesn't change much by the time it gets home.
