I did not see the article and video on the new Papa Gino's ad campaign but I can see how the video shows the drooping characteristic of the PG slices, in this case, even for a basic cheese pizza.
Your post prompted me to take a look at some of the PG YouTube videos. One of these videos, at , shows what appears to be rims formed using a pizza mold such as the one you recently purchased. However, as you know, with professional food photography, it is hard to say whether the photos are typical of what is produced in the real world at Papa Gino's. In most of the examples I have seen in the past, the pizzas shown in commercials do not look like those actually made in the stores.
Another YouTube video, at , appears to show what looks to be oil on the pizza that is typically released by cheddar cheese. Again, it may be a pizza that was produced mostly for its visual photographic appeal. It usually takes a reasonable amount of cheddar cheese to produce that effect.
In Reply 397, I believe that you meant to say Papa Gino's instead of Papa Dino's.
I find the first video you posted interesting. I see the rims seems to be formed by a pizza mold, but they sure seem exaggerated. I know that when using professional food photography it doesn’t always show how pizzas might look at Papa Gino’s. It was also interesting to see how their cheese blend is grated. I am still trying to think of a way to grate the cheese blend like they do. It looks something like pellets. That is how the 3 cheese blend (mozzarella, cheddar and provolone) that Bob1 gave me from Grande looks. I also could see the oregano in the cheese blend in that video.
I see how that second video you posted the link to shows what looks like a fair amount of oiling on the pizza. I know that it does take a reasonable amount of cheddar to produce that effect. Since you and Jamie posted you really couldn’t taste the cheddar in real Papa Gino’s pizzas, I sure don’t think Papa Gino’s would use a lot of cheddar in the blend and it also wouldn’t fit into the Nutrition Facts. I have seen whole milk mozzarella give off pretty much oil though, after a bake. Even in the second video the rim looks well defined too.
In Reply 397 I did mean to say Papa Gino’s. I modified that post. I guess just because there are too many Papa something pizzas, I get confused sometimes when typing and my mind staying on track of what I really want to post. Thanks for keeping me on track.
