Pizza Sauce Recipes
 
Does anyone have any excellent pizza sauce recipes? I have had a horrible time getting just the "right" one... Any recipes you all can share would be appreciated!

:cool:

I think the best is just canned San Marzano Tomatoes crused up with a little salt, pepper, fresh basil and olive oil...maybe a clove of garlic. Simple is best.

Exactly. The tricky part is that this doesn't work with your average tomato; you really need the real thing for this to work.

I haven't tried the tomatoes straight out of the can....

I simmer them with fresh oregano, basil, salt, fresh cracked pepper, fresh garlic, and a quality olive oil for an hour or so.

But I will give it a go this weekend.

I am not a big fan of raw tomatoes or tomatoes straight out of the can, but how could my online pals be wrong about the best sauce?

Keeping the faith.

Dave,

The high heat of your oven cooks fresh tomato sauce, along with the cheese and olive oil -- so that everything is done together, at the perfect moment. That's why you don't need a cooked sauce; though you still need great tomatoes.

Bake hot.

It also helps if you let it sit in the fridge overnight to let the flavours defuse.

I use caned Italian tomatoes ( I think they are San marzano), oregano, a little garlic and thai fish sause instead of salt, the fish sause is anchovy based so its like adding an anchovy. I also add black pepper and sometime a chilly pepper. Sometimes I cook it for 10 or 15mins and sometimes I just mix it up and let it sit in the fridge overnight.

San Marzano Tomatoes? where can I get these perfect tomatoes? any store carry them or do I need to have them imported?

The Forno Bravo store sells them. Usually pretty tough to find locally.

The real ones have a serial number and say DOP on the side...
