French dressing on pizza in Biloxi?

It's been generally known that the use of French dressing on pizza started at Hugo's. I started going there way back when. All the other pizza places now have it too. Hugo's had terrific pizza..I can't you why it tasted so good..it's unlike ANY I've ever had anywhere else. Thin crust and just unique. Unfortunately..as time went on ..not sure..maybe late
70's or early 80's someone bought it..and it wasn't anything like the original. Which is why no one went there. Btw, the original person...Hugo..he died a few months ago (I think). Was in the local paper, The Sun Herald. ( sunherald.com ). Between Hugos (I think it's been demolished..not certain), Baricev's fried shrimp (where Beau Rivage Casino is now) and Angelo's Spaghetti and Meat Sauce dinner (where Vrazel's is now)..you have all of my favorite things to eat. Unfortunately none are still around.

I also liked the Angelo's salad..it came with the Spaghetti and Meat Sauce Dinner..it's where I first tried anchovies (at the request of my wife..she really regrets introducing me to anchovies...because I like them on pizza). Eating the Spaghetti and Meat Sauce entree was one of the great things I remember in my life..I had them "burn it"..sort of a forerunner to
blackening food. What they would do is just put it in the oven a little longer..it wasn't really burned. But it sure tasted great! See my message on the sauce below...will be glad to send it to you if you want.

I have a recipe that came from one of our local food reporters..she got it from Martha Dedicos (a long time ago)..she hesitated on giving out the exact amounts because they were for the restaurant and they weren't able to capture the taste when they reduced the amounts for home use. However..if you are really interested I'll be glad to pass along this recipe ..the one I have and a few suggestions. I am going to try to recreate it by experimentation soon..as I have all of the ingredients that were used in this recipe. Obviously, I enjoyed eating there..I probably ate there in the 100's of times before it finally closed. I did eat at the original restaurant..but most of the times I dined there were after it was rebuilt from the destruction of Hurricane Camille. My email address is handlebar@gmail.com
