Senape's Pitza?

Just got back from a trip to visit my parents new home in the poconos (sort of). They both grew up in northeastern PA (NEPA), and are retiring back to their roots. While we were up there for the holiday, I discovered the most awesomely unique pizza-type-thing in a while. Senape's bakery in Hazleton, PA.

They have some good breads and rolls and stuff, but their specialty is this "pitza". They sell it already baked, but at room temp, wrapped up in boxes of 12 square pieces. It's very saucy, but a good, tasty, salty tomato sauce with a little sharp cheese on top. The crust is really soft, and it's good cold or crisped up in the oven.

We actually transported a box of it back to Knoxville, Tennessee with us tonight and some mysterious chemical reaction happens to make it better after sitting around un-refrigerated all day long. I was skeptical when I saw them selling day old and two-day old pitza in the store, but now I get it. Anyone know about this magical food?
