AJ's uses an authentic New York Italian recipe provided by the Mastandos of Brooklyn, who have used this in their pizzeria for 50 years. To account for the differences between the Big Apple and the Little Apple, we have worked closely with Tom Lehmann “the Dough Doctor” and AIB International. Tom is an authority and author in the pizza industry and a Manhattan, Kansas, resident. He has been an invaluable resource in our quest to deliver the best NY style slice outside of ... well, NYC. To honor this recipe and the people involved, we use only the finest ingredients.
