Here is a close-up shot of my sauce after baking. You can see that the large plate of the OXO gives you chunks that big enough that you can pick them out if you really look, but small enough that they don't look like chunks of tomato sitting on your pie. There is also enough moisture in the sauce to allow for the gentle transition of cheese into sauce. Lastly, the pie looks fresh and alive - not dead and all dried out.

The Ciao product is a nice tomato for sure.  I've used them on a few occasions.

Like many here, either the Cento Italian or Cento D.O.P. San Marzano often find there way onto my pizzas. When the Italian store up the street has them, I use Rega and the Miracle of San Gennaro tomatoes, which are both very good.

Although lately I have switched to another very good brand of secret tomatoes.

Craig, the sauce looks excellent in that pic and the cheese melt is positively spot on. Alive. Lovely. --K

Ciao tomatoes are Orlando Foods' private label.  Excellent product!
