Big Dave Ostrander's Pizza Sauce Recipe
« on: May 24, 2013, 03:49:09 PM »
I am always exploring different pizza sauce recipes. Although I have not yet tried this one, I thought it would be worth posting, so others can try it as well.  It is listed in "Pizza Today", May 2013, page 18, along with his dough recipe.

Big Dave's Pizza Sauce

2 cans all-purpose ground tomatoes
2 cans heavy tomato purees
1 1/4 cans water
.6 ounces leaf basil
.6 ounces leaf oregano
2 ounces black pepper
2 ounces granulated garlic
1 ounce granulated onion
4 ounces salt
4 ounces sugar
8 ounces olive oil
3 ounces Parmesan-Romano cheese

Open the ground tomatoes and pour into a 22-quart container. Scrape tomato puree into container. Fill one can with water.
Pour back and forth between all cans until tomatoes solids are rinsed with from walls. Pour water into two clean cans and add 1/4 more water into one of them.
All all dry spices into one of the cans of water and stir.
Let spices rehydrate for 5 minutes.
Pour all water into container and stir until all ingredients are thoroughly mixed.
Pour in olive oil and stir again.
Sprinkle cheese on top and stir again.
Date and refrigerate. Good for 7 days.

Other than the cheese, I'm reminded of the sauce we made at the pizza joint I worked at when I was younger, Deno's.

All the dry ingredients came in a plastic bag.
I remember that monster can opener and pouring that water from can to can to rinse all the tomato solids out.
We mixed it all with this two and a half foot long immersion stick blender. Date it and shove it in the walk-in.

Hi Bob,

I have never had Big Dave's pizza before. I saw the recipe for his sauce and dough in "Pizza Today", so i thought i would post it for others. Some people are not willing to share their sauce and dough recipe. I am thankful that he did.

It must be good since he has been very successful over years with his pizzeria and now teaches pizza making. I might have to sign up for one of his classes one day.
