I just wanted to thank all of the people posting pictures, and Pete for working on this. I had been looking for recipes for Papa John's dough, the cheese, and the sauce for a long time. I've also REALLLYYYY wanted to know how they made their Perfect Pan Pizza, but I'm afraid that knowledge may be lost now as they no longer make it. If you have any way of making the dough and sauce of the Perfect Pan, that would be AWESOME! Still, you've done quite enough already.
While I don't have a lot of the fancy tools you guys seem to have, I might try this one day. The results shown are a bit inspiring, and at the very least seem aesthetically close to how Papa John's pizza generally looks. Some of the pictures here were quite shocking.
As someone fairly new to making pizza at home, Ive noticed a lot of the cheese companies don't really seem willing to sell to us "lesser folk" though. I was extremely happy, thanking God when I found out who seems to supply Papa John's with their cheese. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like I could get that unless I start a business and want to buy it by the ton. Do you have any recommendations or advice on cheese for this recipe that is accessible by normal humans, that tastes good without having a bunch of crazy chemicals that will turn me into a mutant?
Thank you, and take care!
