This weekend I attempted the Casey's Clone. I used Jake's version from reply 160. Overall it turned out close but not exactly what I remember. It's been several months since I've had Casey's so my memory is may not be perfect.

I scaled the recipe to 14" , see below, but I still found it thinner than I expected, even though my pan was 13"(dark non stick) .  I used King Arthur Bread Flour. Great Value Whole Milk Mozzarella, and a tomato paste based sauce. Things I plan to change for next time:

Larger ball - 14.4oz, I think, was a little small. Probably scale it up to about 16oz for a 14".
Slightly higher hydration, it was a little too crispy and most of the Casey's pizza I've had are just above undercooked(I'm going for accuracy).
Slightly lower sugar, may have been my sauce but the dough seemed a little sweet.
Little more cheese. I used about 7.5 ounces. Will shoot for 8-8.5 ounces next time.

Jake - I found a packet of whey protein at Hy-Vee. I tossed the package but I think it was this: http://www.teraswhey.com/organic-whey/1-oz-organic-plain-whey-protein.html It was in the the supplement section. There was a larger bag of Bob's Mill Sweet Dairy Whey available but it was $16.
