It might be easier to do some dumpster diving.
What are you looking to analyze… The sauce, crust, cheese, a particular topping? I think if you sent a slice of pizza to the lab, the result would come back just that: a slice of pizza. Do it yourself seems to be the simplest of ways. Just learn the taste of various herbs, spices, meats, vegetables, etc., to begin with, along with some well earned cooking skills that teach you how flavors change in various processes.
I started analyzing chili dog sauces several years ago.. I started by asking several taste testers what they thought was in the mix. Everyone seems to pick up a different, yet familiar taste they recognize.. Thus the beginning of creating the copy cat.
Best of luck there! And try to be more specific on what your trying to replicate.. Could be someone here already has a clue.
I’m looking to find out the particular ingredients in a pizza from a shop several hours away from where I live (the recipe is not copyrighted, patented, etc.). I’ve been searching online for some kind of place that does ingredient analysis, but haven’t found anything relevent to what I need. Do any of you know of any such place?
