Howdy,
Ya'll can call me Tofe, I found the site trying to get some help finding a recipe to try to make some chicago style pizzas.  I have had some moderate success on my first attempts with thanks to the posters in the Giordanos pizza clone thread.  I am looking forward to learning more about pizza making, and have already found this site useful and informative.  My current goal  is to get the sauce figured out...I tried using Cento tomatoes in my last try (tasted rather bland).  I was wondering if anybody knows a store in Houston that sells the 6-in-1 tomatoes that are raved about, or any other recipes for a good chunky sauce  for a deep dish pizza.

Tofe,

I'd take the Cento Italian (35oz can) over 6-in-1 any day of the week. Pull out the basil leaves and puree them with a stick blender or run them through a food mill. You can find them at most HEB stores.
