Thanks for those links, Norma. Certainly more than I knew or meets the eye.
Ryan, I'm no sauce expert, so I really don't know what they're using, but you can see than first, it's pretty thick, and second, it's used quite sparingly. I see that Dominic described the cheese as a proprietary blend..please, it's cheddar and maybe some mozz..percentages not exactly knpwn, but I can tell you it's quite rich-tasting. Of course, with a lot of other pie places steps away, keeping the recipe a little quiet probably isn't a bad idea. Delicious, but I can't eat more than one slice of these 24-inchers. As far as that, when we ordered a whole pie, it was not that large, probably 18 inches. The slices also didn't used to be so large, and one of the brothers, confirmed that the slices are larger now than they were a few years back...I can't be certain but I seem to remember that the Travel Channel piece may have had something to do with this?
One flavor I've noted in the crust is that it seems nearly pastry-like, so I was almost surprised that they weren't using shortening instead of olive oi..that's what i picked up, but I guess my tastes deceived me..maybe enough oil does that, Also, the pies we've eaten recently there seem thinner than the video shows people eating, and have darker bottoms with marking from screens. Also, when you come to visit to eat there
, you'll see the shop has moved. This was the 'pre-Hurricane Sandy followed by devastating boardwalk fire' location and I really miss it..it had some little Formica booths and some larger tables..you could just come right off the boardwalk and have lunch...Off-season, there was a back door to the street since the boardwalk would be deserted and cold. I don't know if you could eat-in then, or if the business was strictly takeout. At their new location, a few blocks north, they share space with a bar/restaurant that has quite mediocre reviews, except for their pizza, made by you-know-who
. While they have no casual grab-a-slice-and-eat seating indoors, they do have a fewumbrella-shaded tables and benches right on the boardwalk, which if you can grab one, are perfectly great for enjoying your slice..and was the location of my apparently now-legendary slice photo
I thought interesting he told Richman, "just regular flour.: Uh-huh, regular All Trumps as the bag showed. I did love the Captain Hook impression
Okay, Ryan, summer's coming (in 6 months) Let's go...I'll buy
