Ok, here are the brand choices for crushed and puree tomatoes at my local Walmart:
4. Great Value
All come in both crushed and puree, except for Cento, which only comes in crushed. Some (Hunt's, Contadina, and maybe Tuttorosso) sell whole peeled. All of the other ones usually have water and or some other ingredient in them, while the Cento can just says ~ "fresh vine ripe tomatoes". It is also the most expensive of all the choices at $1.78/can. I assume Cento is best option in terms of flavor? How do they compare to the 6-in1's everyone talks about? Where do the others rank? (Any other thoughts on these brands welcome)
Also, while I'm at it, a basic question: I assume crushed tomatoes should be strained to make most pizza sauces? Whereas the tomato puree does not need to be strained?
Thanks everyone for our help!
