Good Sauces
« on: March 23, 2004, 12:55:30 AM »
I read through the bulk of the info on Encylopizza.com last week and printed the sauce recipes there.

So far I have used two of them and have been more than pleased. With some tweaking I think that I have found my regular sauce.

They are worth a try. With a little conversion in the amounts, since the amounts given are for commercial use. ;D ;D

Hey, does it really make a difference if you simmer the sauce before you put it on the pizza?

Some flavors and ingredients will never reach there full taste or blend together properly if not cooked.

However some sauces are just mixed and not simmered. Although this does work it generally creates a more watery sauce.
The reduction of the water in the sauce to a thicker consistancy is the other main reason to simmer.

Take the same sauce and try simmering some and refrigerate the rest you will notice a difference.
It depends on your personal preference.

I you choose not to simmer, I would recommend to let the sauce sit in the fridge anyway for a couple hours to blend if not simmered. ;D

Yes, there is another thread about the Encyclopizza.

I printed the whole thing out and have it in a loose-leaf binder. It's a great resource!  ;D

I have just made my fourth sauce from the list at encylopizza.com and must say that these so far have been the best collection of sauces I have had.

After trying dozens of combinations from my recipe surfing I think these are quite good and worth a try.
The sauce I made happened to be the garlic & wine sauce.
Now if I only had a can of 6 in 1.
 ;Dmmmmmmmmm :D
