Opened up a big can of the Stanilaus Saporito Super heavy with Basil Pizza Sauce tonight.
Ingredients: Vine ripened fresh tomatoes, salt, dehydrated basil, and naturally derived citric acid.
This heavy pizza sauce is very similar to their SuperDolce pizza sauce.
-Very thick and heavy paste. Maybe a little bit thicker than the SD.
-Sweet and strong tomatoe taste but not as sweet as SD.
-requires dilution of at least 1:1 if not 2:1 parts water to paste to make a usuable sauce.
-Can use as is or spice to your preference
-Value for the $
-High quality tomatoe sauce/paste
Differences to the SuperDolce:
-Not as sweet, but maybe a bit more tomatoey taste.
-A bit thicker require a bit more water to dilute. Great value for the $.
-Didn't have as strong of a citric acid taste from what I can remember.
I wasn't as impress or blown away as I was when I first tasted the SD. It could be and most likely that my taste have changed a bit. I have recently been eating sauce made from fresh tomatoes from the yard. Even though they were as sweet they had a fresher taste. Hard to beat that.
Also this paste/sauce (like the SD) I think is more suited for NY style pies, deep dish, making marinara sauce, and other pasta dishes. For NP style, I think I prefer fresh tomatoes or whole peeled tomatoes.
I think for the person trying them for the first time you will like them very much. These are such a value as one big can will likely make at least 2-3 cans of sauce. I think that I prefer these over the SD, b/c I can still add a bit of stevia natural sweetner to the sauce to make it sweeter.
