My oldest daughter visited Seaside Heights, NJ and Ocean City, NJ yesterday. She ate two slices of Manco and Manco pepperoni pizza in Ocean City yesterday. Before she came home, she purchased me two slices of Manco and Manco regular cheese slices. My youngest daughter and her family had came to visit me last evening for some home made soup I had made.
To try and explain what I am going to post is that I had purchased a Papa Dino’s pizza in the last few days and my oldest daughter and youngest daughter had tasted slices from Papa Dino‘s. Last evening my youngest daughter also had a slice of the Manco and Manco pizza. My oldest daughter, youngest daughter and I all thought the Manco and Manco slices tasted almost exactly the same as the Papa Dino’s slices, even with the differences of the sauce (Papa Dino’s pizza sauce is different) and the differences in the crusts (Papa Dino’s crust is a little thicker and has a heavier texture, if I can explain that right). I sure don’t know, but would think that it is the cheese that makes the Mack’s, Manco and Manco and Papa Dino’s pizzas all taste almost exactly the same.
I also noted again, that there really doesn’t appear to be a lot of sauce on a Manco and Manco pizza and the sauce looks like it was applied with a thinner sauce than I have been applying in my attempts.
My oldest daughter said her slices where greasier when she had them at Manco and Manco. I know when eating a fresh slice of Manco and Manco and Mack’s s they are greasier than when they are reheated. The same thing applied last evening when reheating the slices in my home oven.
I don’t know if anyone can explain why the Manco and Manco rim crust seem to be lighter than a Papa Dino’s slice though. The Manco and Manco slice I ate last evening was much lighter in texture (although it didn’t have more oven spring), than the slices of Papa Dino’s I ate. I really don’t think it was the TF of the Papa Dino’s slices I ate, but really don’t know if it was the TF or overall hydration of the two different slices.
I sure don’t know, but think eating slices of Manco and Manco pizza and also eating slices of Papa Dino’s pizzas in a matter of a couple of days, at least my daughters and I should be able to compare both pizzas in their tastes.
The pictures below are non reheated slices first and the last two pictures are reheated slices. My daughter also send me a text with a picture of the slices she ate at Manco and Manco yesterday, (while she was at Manco and Manco) but I didn’t get that picture transferred to my email account.
I know I am posting about Papa Dino’s on this thread and really shouldn’t (because it isn’t a boardwalk pizza), but I wanted to note how they both tasted almost the same.
