NEPA pizza ala "Tommy's" of the 60s (now "Pizza L'oven")

Hi, all...
I'm on a quest and if anyone can help me, I'd certainly appreciate it!

In the late-50s, early-60s, while spending summers in NE PA (Exeter, Wyoming Valley, near Scranton... and Old Forge) my grandfather used to send me to a pizza joint called "Tommy's" for 12 cuts of pizza... it was, by comparison to NY pizza... or pizza in Naples... nothing spectacular, but it is part of my childhood that I want to recreate since I live on the left coast now!
It was baked in a rectangular pan, had a plain tomato/onion sauce and white cheese. It was also delicious and I'm hoping to recreate it for my almost 80 year-old mother who grew up there!

Any help would be greatly appreciated... I've been working at this for many months and have not quite got it right yet!
