My pizza making journey has begun!!
« on: October 20, 2013, 11:14:47 AM »
I just (somewhat) made my first home made pizza ever...although I bought the dough from Trader Joe's.  The sauce was based on recipes that you guys have posted...

1 can drained San Marzano peeled tomatoes
Pulsed a little with immersion blender
Added...
.5 teaspoon Kosher Salt.25 teaspoon white sugar
2 teaspoons EVOO
Sprinkled some garlic powder in
1 teaspoon grated parmesan cheese
2 basil leaves torn into smaller pieces

Pulse Immersion blended a little again

It came out surprisingly tasty, even though the crust was a little undercooked on the bottom.  Of course, I forgot to take pics of the bottom, which would make this very apparent.  Looking forward to make my own dough very soon!!
