On Wildwood 365 facebook page posted on May 21, 2014 they posted a photo of Two pipin' hot slices of pep...err...we mean...Can you TASTE it. https://www.facebook.com/Wildwood365
There were 677 likes as of yesterday. I thought the comments were interesting. I still wonder why so many people like Mack's pizzas. I am beginning to believe, and guess am biased, that the reason a Mack's pizza is so good to so many people, is that it is the cheddar they use, that makes it such a different tasting pizza.
I had a regular customer and his family stop by later Tuesday evening (when I am normally cleaning up). I was cleaning up and out of boardwalk style pizzas. He talked awhile about Mack's pizza and said he was at Mack's over this past weekend. He said he experienced a really droopy crust this time and never had one like that before at Mack's. He also said he knows Mack's pizza is really thin, but this time it was thinner than normal and it did not taste like a normal Mack's pizza. That customer does think my boardwalk style pizzas do taste like a Mack's pizza. I am beginning to believe no matter what kind of dough formulation is used (within reason) most people will think it tastes like a Mack's pizza if the right cheddar is used and the sauce is applied in a spiral pattern (sauce and cheddar have to be something like Mack's). This is just my opinion from talking to my customers. After studying that photo, and thinking it over, I might want to make my rim crusts smaller because I think most regular people like the taste of a whole pizza better than the rim crust (this is not including most members here on the forum). I know what I just posted is not what I like in a pizza. I do like a pizza with more oven spring and a good flavor in the crust.
So, that leads me to this question if anyone want to reply. Is it the experience of the whole pizza, and how it tastes, that made a member purchase a pizza they have liked from before they came to this forum? I guess what I mean is: Would a member here on the forum before coming here and learning how to make pizza doughs in different ways and learning about different crust flavors just like the pizza for the way it tasted in whole terms?
