Thanks for the links.

My initial impression of the crust was that it is pretty amazing and yet very uncomplicated, what stands out is an almost fossilized undercrust which produces a big crunch.  This is their "hook".  This simple thing differentiates it from other soggy pan pizzas on market.   There are some interesting information in your links that I saw, regarding oil used to grease the pan.  Though the data shows corn oil only, there's definitely an artificial flavoring added somewhere, as corn oil doesn't naturally taste like butter.  Tasting the sauce, there's alot more going on there too, and reminds me of Chuck E. Cheese pizza sauce in the 80's in a good way.  There's something nostalgic about the pizza flavor.   To clone this pizza begins with getting the undercrust texture right.  In my experience, is low/intermediate hydration, lower temp and longer bake.  To dry out the undercrust as much as possible without burning it.

I find another way their model differentiates against competitors is via tight quality control of workflow and ingredient sourcing and prep.  Unused old doughs are thrown out, and made fresh daily unlike other chains who'll use delivered dough out to many days.  Vegetables are cut in house daily, etc.  Nothing complicated just fresher ingredients and strict adherence to processes.  And these things seem cyclical to chains.  For instance, about a decade ago, Dominos rebooted with better processes and ingredients and they've cleaned up in market share while Papa Johns has regressed and imo, was the better product at one point.

HarryHaller73,

On the matter of the crunch, you might take a look at Reply 21, at https://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php?topic=8247.msg415258#msg415258, and also Reply 214 at https://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php?topic=8247.msg415286#msg415286. There is also a fair amount of follow-up discussion after Reply 214.

There will always be issues when trying to replicate a commercial pizza but using a home oven. It also means having the right pan.

Having been in Jets before they started branding their supplies, my husband saw them using Whirl to coat the deep dish pans.  So the last time I was there, I saw a bottle with their name on it.....and it was turned enough to see the name of Whirl on the back.  I purchased some a couple of weeks ago and it made a world of difference in the crunch and taste.

A person could read this entire thread, decide on the best approach, and make one faster than he/she could successfully order one from Jet's web site. The one in our area anyway. Too bad, I like their pizza once in a while but not their phone system or web site. It's near my shop. I walk in and order one sometimes and come back in 15-20 minutes.

I'm surprised. Whirl is just Soybean oil...

Lou, I could not find the ingredients but the website says: Whirl butter flavored oil adds delicious butter flavor to everything you make, without the hassles of butter or margarine. Whirl's authentic butter flavor makes it great for brushing on pizza crusts and breadsticks and as a replacement for butter or margarine in wing sauces. Best of all, Whirl is up to half the cost of butter!

So they must just add flavoring to soybean oil?

I'm curious;

Does anyone recall Jet's bake time and temp? I've never had one of their pies but I do find it interesting they've cracked getting a very crisp crust in a conveyor.

Also, does anyone know how they store and care for their plans? Jets has to do a ton of volume...I'm wondering how they clean those steel pans without having them rust.

I'll ask the next time I stop in and see if the help will give me the time and temp for their pies.  I do LOVE their rectangle pies, crispy on the outside and tender on the inside, just the right amount of cheese and sauce IMO.
