Casa Bianca LA, pizza sauce
« on: March 07, 2013, 11:34:41 AM »
I've been eating Casa Bianca's pizza for over 30 years and it's often mentioned as one of LA's best pizza places. Most patrons don't know that it's a Chicago thin crust and you either love it or hate it. Everyone loves the sauce, so I decided to ask for a container of it to-go at the end of our meal.  I was expecting to have my request rejected, but I got it!  What I found to me most interesting was how much more herbs were in the sauce than any recipe I've come across on this site for ANY style of pizza.   This sauce probably has 3-4 times the amount of oregano that I use (lot's of green flakes visible).  I can also see what I think is granulated garlic.  Any thoughts on how to intelligently deconstruct this?  BTW, I spotted a can of 7/11 on the floor of their kitchen.

You need to find a supertaster.

Yep!  The sauce is very aromatic and I think I'm getting some basil odor, similar to some dried basil I have in a shaker. 

I'll have to do more reconnaissance!
