Bread for the Best Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich?

My friends on BBQ Brethren believe Amoroso is the best bread for a Philly Cheesesteak sandwich.

I looked into this, then realized it is a brand of bread and not a type of bread--lol shows my ignorance.

Anyways, I figure it's better to make my own bread for this sandwich than buy Amoroso, and I figure one ore more of you here know which bread that would be.

I could use some advice or a recipe or two, with respect to the bread, to make the most awesome Philly Cheesesteak sandwich.  Then I'll share the results with y'all and the brethren--with some photos.

Note: BBQ Brethren is to BBQ as The Fresh Loaf is to Baking Bread.  (Both are the very best of the forums available on the Internet, for their respective categories of cooking.)

Well, the Amoroso website claims their buns were the foundational bread for the first philly cheesesteaks, basically. From the pictures they have scrolling across the page, it would seem they are just a nice bun. You could probably find all sorts of recipes on here, using the search pane at the top right of this page. To get you started, here's a post that looks promising:

Howdy brethren!

Everyday all day cheesesteak cheesesteak! (i guess that geico commercial only plays around here)


Amoroso's is the go too, alot of places bake on premises are using their frozen par-baked products which they do ship in case you wanted to try a real one to compare!
