You know what, I was at Smart & Final a few weeks ago and bought some First Street whole canned tomatoes. I was reluctant to but I thought I'd try them. They turned out to be very good.
I was too lazy maybe, or many it's not that, but I didn't put any spices in it. No salt, no sugar, no oregano, basil, nada, nothing. I think it's because I got lazy and just put it in the food processor and just crushed the check out of them and used that for sauce. Actually, I think it was a combination of laziness and curiosity of how they would be without any added spices. The tomatoes when crushed up in the processor were bright red and vibrant. On the pizza they tasted good. I can't say they were better than Alta Cucina but for under $2 for a big giant can you can't beat it.
I might get these tomatoes again since I can't find Alta Cucina anymore.
