My mother makes the best Sicilian pizza I have ever had. Her secret is to not cook the sauce, and use fresh herbs and a Sicilian olive oil. She adds fresh garlic, pepper, fresh basil, fresh oregano, salt, and olive oil. I hope this helps.

Hello Tim,  Is your mother's recipe authentic?  Can you share it with us?  I would be interested in comparing the two.

I'm going to start the sauce today.  I ordered my semolina flour and square pan which should arrive in a couple of days.


Sure here ya go
1 28oz can 6-1 crushed tomatoes
2tbls REAL UNPASTURIZED unsalted butter
1 small yellow onion finely diced
2 cloves of garlic pressed (or as many as you like)
1 tbls fresh chopped basil
2 tbls fresh chopped oregano
1 teas fresh thyme
1/4 teas fresh ground pepper
1/4 teas salt
1/4 to 1/2 cup good italian dry red wine
saute onions in butter till clear (10min)
add wine reduce by at least 1/2 volume 1/4 is best DO NOT BOIL!!!
add garlic & herbs salt & pepper simmer for 10min.
add tomatoes & simmer for 2 to 4 hours (the longer it simmers the sweeter it be)
simmer = under 200deg AGAIN DO NOT BOIL if your stove is to hot use your oven
stir every 15min
 I also add 1/4 cup diced yellow bell peppers cause I like em
To make it more like true sicilian would be make your own wine from the grapes you grew, As well as the tomatoes, That were watered from your sicilian water well. OK!
1 more thing don't put olive oil in your sauce pour it on your finished pie if you like oil

I finished the sauce and decided to make a couple meatball subs to see how the sauce tasted in a finished product.  I'll have to say that the wife and I were very happy with it.  I'll post pictures of the pizza once I get it done.

I had most of the things here at the house so I used what I had.

Onions and wine reducing.

Turned out to be a delicious sauce. I put, too much, on a Pizza Hut dough that I found from the recipie section. and the taste was great. I liked it better than any others I have made....so far 8)
I think it would make a super dipping sauce for bread sticks too. ;D

I made a sauce this morning for a grandma style thick pizza this evening. I got up at 6 and roasted a
pork bone that I had left over from a Sunday afternoon goulash. I coated with salt, pepper, and tomato sauce and roasted at 425 for about an hour. At about 25 min out I threw in a quartered onion, smashed garlic cloves to roast.

Then I put 3-4 sml cans of kitchen cut plum tomato, splash of H20, fresh basil leaves, sprinkle of
salt into a slow cooker with the bone, onions, garlc and drippings on the lowest setting all day.

I left my dough out from 6 to 9:30 - then I shapped in a lightly oiled pan and covered to rise all day

When I got home I covered the dough with cheese, dolloped on the sauce and baked to golden perfection. MMM - It never occured to me to take pictures. LOL

I am interested in trying a no cook version - probably cant use pork than.  :-\

Heavy Tomato Puree is, unfortunately, not available at retail. But, you can purchase it at places like GFS. The "Heavy" refers to the Specific Gravity of the Puree. You can buy 1.045, 1.06 and 1.07 SG at GFS. For Thin Crust Pizza, I use 1.07 SG. It is best spread over the crust with a "frosting" type of spatula. All of these are much, much thicker than retail Puree.

007Bond-jb,
Looks just about like the sauce my grandma made growing up... except on her side of the tracks they used a bit more black pepper.

Want your sauce sweeter... a family secret to good sauce... cut up a good size carrot into quarters and drop it in the sauce.  While simmering all day long, the carrot absorbs some of the acid from the sauce making it sweeter.  We used to fight over who got the carrots (though they are suppose to be disposed of like the bay leaves).  ;D  Just a little something I thought I'd share.

Joe
I believe we could have world peace if someone could make enough Pizza and supply enough Beer for Everyone!
