Default What's your favorite pizza sauce?

Thinking mostly store bought right now. Have tried a few different brands and so far it has not done it for me. If you want to throw in a SIMPLE homemade idea, go ahead. I know it will probably be better than store bought.

For traditional style pizza, this is what I use. It's a breeze to make and tastes great:

Moose’s Pizza Sauce Recipe:

2 Large Cans Whole Plum Tomatoes ( San Marzanos are best, but TJ’s Plum Tomatoes are also good.)
˝ white onion, quartered
6 large garlic cloves
1 TBSP crushed oregano leaves
1tsp fresh ground pepper
Salt to taste

Open tomato cans, and push top down on contents of can and strain. Add all ingredients to blender, then blend until all ingredients are fully liquefied, about 2 minutes. Place sauce in saucepan, and cook over low heat for 10-30 minutes, stirring frequently. The longer you cook the sauce, the thicker it will be, so adjust the cook time to your thickness preference. Let sauce cool before topping on pizza.

Makes enough sauce for 3 14 inch pizzas.

Thanks all and thanks for the recipe Moose. That sounds simple enough. Canned plum tomatos are scarce around here but I'll look at the fancy supermarket today.

If you can find them 6-1 canned crushed tomatoes are great for pizza. Just add some oregano, basil, thyme, and maybe some red pepper flake and garlic.

Gary,

You could always try Progresso canned plum tomatoes, which should be in most markets...not as good as San Marzanos, but they'll do...I see you're about what? 40 miles from Cleveland? There's two Trader Joe's near Cleveland, so next time you're in the area, you could stock up. Last I checked, they were $1.99 a large can, which is a great price.

For me, simple is the best for pizza, you want to taste tomato. I puree San Marzano tomatoes, add and salt and pepper to taste, and just a touch of tomato paste to help bind it. You could also run the San Marzanos through a food mill if you don't want seeds.

Lately I've been doing white pizza, simply using thinly sliced tomatoes from the garden for flavor.

6-1, Escalon tomatoes are my go to brand. Consistantly outstanding. I get them by the case at about $2.10 a can. I use them to make my pasta and pizza sauce.

Ive seen them at RD in a rather large can.

I do basically the same thing but I sautee onions and garlic and red pepper flakes in about a little olive oil for a few minutes before adding the San Marzanos, etc. Instead of putting stuff in the blender i use an immersion blender at the end if i want it smooth. If you like it chuncky just leave it as is. Makes and absolutely amazing sauce for pasta or for pizza

I really like Trader Joe's pizza sauce - I only just started seeing it, so I think its new. Very tomatoey.

Before that, I used this recipe - super easy:

http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/fo...za-Sauce-14647

I'd freeze the extra in little snack sized glad containers.
