Frozen Pizza sauce
« on: May 07, 2013, 06:32:28 PM »
I generally make pizza for my wife and I. One at a time. I have been making sauce for several pies and freezing the sauce. Since it gets a little wet after defrosting, I strain the water out. The sauce seems fine in the final product.
Just wondering if there are others who do the same?

I freeze my 6-1 sauce after opening. I make just one pizza a week, I'd love to make it more but there becomes a weight problem for me. Sauce tastes good to me. Patrick

I don't even like sauce after it has been in the fridge overnight.
I love pigs. They convert vegetables into bacon.

I too only make pizza for the wife and I but I usually make two then freeze one for lunch the next few days.  As for the sauce, if I make a large amount, I will freeze it in pint plastic tubs and then usually defrost it for when there is a party and I need it in a recipe or for dipping.  If it seems to thin after defrosting I usually blend in some grated parm to thicken it up.

If I have extra sauce, I usually end up making something else with it.

I put it in freezer zip locks and have never had any problems.  :chef:

My experience has always been that the sauce separates when frozen and you can never get it back to it's original consistency. It also takes on a somewhat bitter taste, at least that is the sensation I get. I open and season a fresh 28 oz. can of crushed tomatoes when making pizza, and any that isn't used that night on pizza is usually repurposed for something besides pizza.

Maybe it's the sauce you are using. I have been through many, many #10 cans of 6 n 1's and 7-11's that were successfully frozen in portioned freezer bags.

I only buy the #10 can of 6 n 1s.   I give the can a good mixing then I separate them into 12 zip lock bags (each having enough sauce for 2 pizzas).  I do not notice any flavor or consistency dropoff.

+1 and I keep all the smaller el-cheapo bags in a large "freezer" bag. Squeeze those smaller bags a 'lil and you can get them sealed up with zero air in the bag.

Ditto.  I even suck out the air with a straw to prevent freezer burn.

Same thing...have baggie almost sealed... stand filled bag up on counter with 2 fingers ready to pinch closed that last little bit...gently push down on bag...air gets forced out an you pinch closed just before sauce starts to come out. Try it next time; you'll see what I mean...we don't need no stinking straws man!  ;D
