Being an old Eastside Bridgeport kid, I remember Jerrys Pizza...Hey Jerry large Ahbeets with extra Scamorza. Scamorza is a smoked Mozzarella Cheese.............I remember Frisby Pie company.....We used to toss the alum pie tins like Frisbys ( Go Figure) Used to get a bar pie at Rocco's Pizza on Artic St. Used to bring the girls to Seaside park and show them (General) Howe standing up................Bill
While scamorza sometimes is smoked, that's not usually the case, and it was never smoked when used at Jerry's.
From THE FOOD LOVER'S COMPANION, 2nd edition, by Sharon Tyler Herbst:
scamorze cheese; scamorza; scamorzo
Though today this Italian cheese is usually made from whole cow's milk (sometimes mixed with sheep's or goat's milk), scamorze was originally made only from buffalo milk. It's a PASTA FILATA type of cheese that is basically a very firm, slightly salty MOZZARELLA. Scamorze, which contains about 44 percent milk fat, has a creamy white color and a mild, nutty flavor. It's sold in small ovals or gourd shapes and can sometimes be found smoked. Scamorze can be used in much the same way as mozzarella generally as a table cheese or in cooking.
As to the Frisbie pie tins being tossed like Frisbees, you should be aware that those pie tins were the inspiration for the plastic Frisbee, which was developed by a Yalie who tossed the pie tins around the Wright Hall quad.
