Recipe for Papa Del's Pizza Dough

When we were graduate students at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, my husband and I would get a deep dish pizza from Papa Del's.  Their pizza dough is unlike any other Chicago Deep Dish dough we have ever had.  We are now on the East coast and would love to have the recipe for making this dough or anything similar to it.  Anyone have a recipe??

Pretty sure they have worked on a Papa Del's clone over at

Those guys are experts over there(some of them) for stuff like that. They often get pretty close.
