Looking for a pizza sauce recipe
Any suggestions? Do I even need "sauce" or can I just crush a can of San Marzano tomoatoes?
I suggest just getting a can of Furmano's pizza sauce. They have plain and chunky style. Very simple and tasty. I always keep in pantry for a quick pizza dinner.
this is my no-cook sauce from Cook's illustrated.
1 14.5 oz can diced tomatoes..drain juice
1 garlic clove
1 tbs olive oil
salt and pepper
1 tbs dry oregano
fresh oregano if you have it.
in the food processor I first chop the garlic till fine, then I add the fresh herbs and chop. Then add the tomatoes and olive oil and puree till smooth. add salt and pepper to taste. i let it sit at room temp till I am ready to use it.
I use one I saw demonstrated on Julia Child's show one time with one of her guest chefs. Can't remember who, though.
1 large can of whole peeled tomatoes
2 cloves crushed garlic
2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons olive oil
7-10 fresh basil leaves, chopped
a pinch of sugar (optional)
a bigger pinch of dried oregano (optional)
S&P to taste
Over a sieve placed over a larger bowl, crush the whole tomatoes with your hands and throw out the tomato butts. Reserve the juices.
Mix the rest of the ingredients together, then add back in juice a little at a time to get the consistency you like.
I usually leave out the sugar and put in just a small pinch of oregano.
I have found the "no cook" sauces to add the tomato *oomph* that I like on my pizzas. But I have also been known to open a carton of Pomi crushed tomatoes and use that when I have a craving but no sauce ready in the fridge. It is good! Open your can and give it a try.
Just don't skimp on the mozzarella!!! None of the pre-shredded stuff in bags at the supermarket you hear? ;-)
