I'm going to check out the Giordano's improvements you were telling me about....I really can't eat too much pizza just yet(diet) but a small deep dish once in awhile never killed nobody..... ;)

Change to part skim cheese.  Much healthier.  And switch to pizza with less to no oil (NY, V&Ns).

I'd crush them in my hand into a bowl, add some fresh crushed garlic, salt and pepper, then stir...

Done.

Tried a can of Sclafani San Marzano Tomatoes. I was disappointed in that they were not that sweet for the high price. Either i had an old can or that crop was not sweet. I do NOT plan on purchasing them again any time soon.

Tom,

I think if you tried this kind of Sclafani Crushed Tomatoes you might change you mind about Sclafani tomatoes.  They were not expensive.

I agree with Norma. As far as I know there is no relationship between the two Sclafani tomatoes. The one Norma pictured is a domestic product. The couple cans I tried were probably the sweetest tomato I've ever tasted out of a can. It was a darker sweetness than I usually get in a tomato - like hints of brown sugar or molasses. I don't use much crushed tomato, but if I did and these were available locally, it's probably what I'd use.

I agree with Norma.  Sorry if I've said this already, but the Sclafanis that Norma posted are from NJ.  Don Pepino is based out of NJ (jersey tomatoes  ;D).  I believe the Sclafani San Marzanos that you used, Tom are from CT.

I find that San Marzanos that I use periodically are a crapshoot.  Sometimes they're good sometimes not.  I used a can of Cento Organic San Marzanos yesterday and they were delicious.  I guess it depends on the crop.

the two Sclafani's, as far as I know, are not related in any way. I use and recommend the NJ Sclafani's, have been for years and have turned other members on to them. The other Sclafani is headquartered in CT., they sell a complete line of Italian foods, and I believe all their tomatoes are imported.

It is very confusing when trying to purchase Sclafani Tomatoes. However, I will look for the ones that are from NJ. Thank you all for the feedback.

The crushed Sclafani tomatoes you want are in ribbed (for your enjoyment) cans.  Notice the picture that Norma posted.  I bought some this week at Walmart for $1.54

 I've been using Sclafini crushed for a few years.  Recently, I hand crushed a can of Sclafani whole peeled tomatoes and added enough Saporito sauce to get the right consistency.  Added a bit of oregano and some garlic oil.  It was the best sauce I've ever made.  I divide a #10 of Saporito into deli containers.  It freezes well.

Just made a marinara with this brand from World Market.  I always favor Cento, but these might be even better.

Look at a stone cutter hammering away at his rock, perhaps a hundred times without as much as a crack showing in it. Yet at the hundred-and-first blow it will split in two, and I know it was not the last blow that did it, but all that had gone before.

Thank you for sharing. I am going to give this a try soon. I have not ever tried garlic oil?

The garlic subtle.  I heat a smashed clove in an 1/8th cup of olive oil and let it steep.  I add about a tsp of the oil per can of tomatoes.  Now that I think about it, I also added a couple of finely chopped basil leaves.
