Has anyone worked on a recipe for Quonset pizza up in north suburban Waukegan? Interested in sauce and I believe they make their own sausage. They use the same sausage for Bomber sandwiches as well, so would love to get it also. Thanks.

I'm looking for a thin crust (not cracker) for use in a wood-fired oven. Any suggestions?

Several people have made Garveys in the Blackstone.

Anyone know a recipe for Milanos Pizza on the south side of Chicago? Thanks!

Hey BigSkyTom.  I would have to second this request.  I grew up in Lake Villa so I didn't really get to eat there too often but I tried it when I grew up.  It was a very solid Northern Illinois pizza that I'd love to try and recreate.
My friends say I am the best pizza maker there is.  But I know better.

Why don't you start a thread with the right keywords so likeminded folks can find it?  Bake up a pizza and show us your recipe and pictures of your results.  This is a community.  Sounds like fun.

I thought about it but then I live in South Texas now.  I have zero access to get up there and figured there wouldn't be another person out there that would know Quonset.  Maybe I'll try and see what happens.  But as far as me trying to recreate that pizza... I would have no way to know if I was on target.  I forgot what it tasted like many years ago.  I just remember that I liked it.

Well, the place still exists, so there's a good chance that other fans may be looking here someday.  Best way to find out is to start a new thread.  Otherwise, it's pretty buried here on this completely unrelated thread, where it's totally O/T.  Just trying to help.

Alright then!  I appreciate the advice. Let's see what happens. :-)

I also tried this pizza on National Pizza Day in Wood Fired Pizza Oven. Here are the Steps for Chicago thin "Dough":

1. The first step is, take a mixer with a dough hook, a bread maker or a large mixing bowl, place water, sugar, salt, olive oil, and yeast into a bowl and mix for about 10 minutes.
2. Remove the dough onto a lightly floured surface and hand kneed until a smooth dough ball is formed.
3. Place the dough ball into a lightly oiled bowl and let it rise for 2 hours.
4. After rising, punch down the dough ball by hand.
5. Reform into a smooth dough ball on a lightly floured surface, cover and let rise for another hour.
6. Cut off about 450 grams of dough and roll it out in the shape of a circle about 16 inches in diameter.
7. Transfer the rolled out dough to a well-oiled cast iron pan or skillet and gently press to the walls without tearing the dough.
