I just made this and it was very good and very close to that of Sbarro's. I would add that, like in the store, I prefer it served with a little extra marinara sauce on the top. It can be a little dry for my taste without.

I'm impressed, I used to make this when I worked at Sbarro. We didn't use pepper, I wanted to clear that up. And Pomodoro Sauce would be the exact same thing if you want it to taste just like the store. Good luck and have fun!
