temp of sauce when put on pizza
« on: March 17, 2004, 09:29:51 PM »
does anyone have any insight as to whether it matters what temperature the sauce is when it goes on the pizza?  i always try to get the sauce near room temperature, and i was wondering if people just take it straight from the refrigerator or stove, and if that makes a difference (in the cooking of the pizza, or any difference at all).

I like room temp just so I can tell how "watery" it is or isn't.

I have used them all three ways :
Room Temp
Hot Fresh From Pan
Cold From Fridge

I have noticed little to no difference. Howerver my sauces are usually very thick so I never really have a excess water problem. But unless you reduce your sauce as much as I do DKM is right to check to see how much water. Don't want a soggy doggy of a pizza.  I have had it happen when putting on tomatoes with to much liquid left in them.

My sauce is not boiled and has the same consistency as they come from the 6 in1 can.
I canít tell a difference when used at room temperature versus cold, from the cooler.

How much you use seems to have the most influence to me.  That is other than flavor.

I've never notice a real difference, between cold and room temp with as far as how the sauce comes out on a cooked pizza.  But I'm not always the one who makes the sauce, and sometimes I make it in advance, and if anyone has read my past post, you know who I am about messuring things!

So when it comes time to make the pizza I like to have it at room temp.

It should really be a little bit colder than room temperature (otherwise, you'll be dealing with spoilage from the tomatoes if you don't use it all).

Just make sure it's in a covered plastic container (not metal or stainless steel) otherwise you'll risk spoilage or a more sour tasting sauce.
