Pastene's say "naturally derived ", I have a can in my hand. IMO, Pastene's has slipped noticeably in quality from years past, they have an almost "floral" taste to me.

I think it's a safe bet that the source is not tomato - probably citrus.
Pizza is not bread.

Does anyone ever add onion to their Pizza sauce recipe? I have used it in spaghetti sauces, but not with pizza. I am asking because I saw this recipe online as I search out different recipes for fun.

New York Style Pizza Sauce

1 (28-ounce) can whole peeled tomatoes
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
2 medium cloves garlic, grated on microplane grater (about 2 teaspoons)
1 teaspoon dried oregano
pinch red pepper flakes
Kosher salt
2 six-inch sprigs fresh basil with leaves attached
1 medium yellow onion, peeled and split in half
1 teaspoon sugar

It would seem that this recipe is for the person that wants to make sauce for both their pizza and pasta? However, i would like to hear some feedback on using onion in your sauce.

I visited Sam's Club this weekend. I thought this was a very good price for number 10 cans of Quality Products.

I've used onions in my sauce for years, but dice them finely and then saute them as the first step, before adding the garlic and other spices which I only cook for about a minute before adding the tomatoes. Once everything is combined I pull out the immersion blender and get it nice and smooth before allowing it to cook and reduce a bit.

I used to leave it more chunky, but I hang around with enough people who don't like onions (at least they THINK they don't like them  ;) ) that I decided at one point to use the stick blender to make them disappear. In the end they thought it was the best sauce ever and had no idea the onions that they would normally pick out were part of what made it so tasty.

I purchase a magazine called Homemade Pizza by Hobby Farm. I scanned three of the Tomato Pizza Sauce Recipes that they recommended in the magazine. They do provide many other dough recipes and pizza creations in the magazine, along with photos. Here are three Pizza Sauce Recipes that are in the magazine. I have not tried them, but thought i would share them with you.

Fennel seed. Black pepper. A pinch of salt. Honey. (I sometimes use strawberry preserve as long as its non corn syrup.)Fresh basil at the end.

Some of those frozen pizzas have a flavor to their sauce that I think is pretty good...DiGiorno comes to mind...Sunday I had sample of Freschetta 4 cheese at BJ'S club....sauce was very good, bright tasting actually.
So what is their mystery ingredient that could be added to "a can of peeled tomatos" ?  Tiny bit of corn syrup(did Bob jus say that evil word ???)

It would seem that the range of what people think to be the best pizza sauce is even wider than the range of what people to consider to be the best pizza. This recipe is so far from what I would personally consider to be pizza sauce, it makes Chicago deep dish look like Neapolitan.

How much sugar and oil would you have to put in the crust to even taste it under that sauce? How heavy would you have to pile the toppings? It's just a flavor bomb. You couldn't get farther from what I try to achieve in my pizza. I'm sure there are plenty of people who want it though.

Maybe it's ascorbic acid they add....with a hint of corn syrup.  ;)

I pretty much use Cento Certified San Marzanos. I can get them for $2.69 to $2.89 per can at our local Publix supermarket.

Here is what I do to make a great sauce for Neopolitan style pizzas.

You need two mixing bowls.   I found that if you pour the contents of the entire can in a mesh strainer (medium courseness) that fits over a bowl and gently open the fruits with your hands, much of the extra water will drain off.    I usually wait 15-20 minutes. 

Then you can process the fruits and puree any way you see fit.

If you like chunky, then pull the flesh out of th mesh strainer and place the pieces in a clean bowl.  Place the mesh strainer and tomato/puree mixture over the clean bowl Use a stiff silicone spatula and press/scrape the remaining puree and parts through the mesh strainer.  This will filter out a lot of the seeds and any tough "core" parts of the fruits.  When you are finished, be sure to scrape the bottom of the mesh strainer with the spatula to get all the goodness out.

Add 1 tsp kosher salt.  1 tsp olive oil and 1/4 to 1/2 tsp of garlic powder...

Mash up the flesh and sauce up in the clean bowl.   Or a perhaps a couple of quick grinds with a stick blender.   Let sit for 30 minutes minimum... preferably several hours or more.

It's obvious that sauces like that take some extra work to prepare, personally, I have no problem with freezing sauce so the extra effort could be worth it. Myself, I would only use an elaborate sauce like these on a particular type of pizza. Like Craig said..."it's a flavor bomb" and I would be inclined to want to use it on a thicker crust type pie. Something along the lines of a Pizzerium, Sicilian, maybe Detroiter even, with just cheese, maybe, one additional topping(something veggie gourmetish,dunno).
Or jus make a nice pasta dish with it.  ;D
