Escalon 6-in-1's...I'm sold!
« on: March 11, 2006, 11:04:03 PM »
I have been trying to improve on my deep dish pizzas and picked up on the 6-in-1's here. I found them locally here in SoCal for $1.99 28oz can (wish they were less $$!), but wow, what a great taste! I'm NOT a big fan of tomato chunks in sauce..much prefer a smoother tomato product, but these are just right for a ddep dish pizza.

I do wish they were just a bit thicker in consistency. Now I don't want to drain them and lose any of that great flavor, so what can I add to thicken them and get rid of the slight wateriness in the pizza one I dump (ok, spoon) an entire can onto my deep dish pizza? Tomato paste? Shoot, that powder stuff that I can't think of name of right now?

What a great product...even better than the Muir Glen tomatoes that I thought were the best around here!

Do you mind sharing what store you found you 6-in1's? I have been using their marinara just the same, and the texture and flavor profile is perfect for my tastes.

Thanks Lydia

No problem...I found them at Claro's Italian Markets...they have a few locations in Orange Co (Tustin) and the Inland Empire. Also online as well I think.

For those pizza makers who live in the midwest , Gordon Food Service (GFS)  carries large 6 LB 9 oz restaurant size cans of 6 in 1 ground tomatoes for about $4.75 give or take.  they don't carry the small cans though.  Also SoFo foods in Toledo Ohio carries 6 in 1 in the smaller size cans + other pizza making supplies.
