If you have ever looked at my thread, "Using Beer in your Pizza Dough", then you will know that I am a fan of Pizzaiolo by Stanislaus.

http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php?topic=17415.msg337638#msg337638


However, I was able to pick up nine #10 cans of Escalon, 6 in 1 All Purpose Ground Tomatoes for $2.97 a can. It was being deleted by the Costco Business Center. While I will use some of it to make chili, I will use the rest to make pizza sauce.  I am asking those that use 6 in 1, as their base for pizza sauce, to please post their favorite pizza sauce recipe on this thread. (I am not looking for a critique about 6 in 1, just recipes)

I want to thank everyone in advance for posting their favorite pizza sauce recipe using 6 in 1. I am sure others will benefit from this as well. Thanks again.

TomN,

     I'm a big fan of red.november's pizza sauce (#2). It's so good we even use it for meatball subs, strombolis and bread dipping. There are many references to it on the forum and also an excel calculator for it.

Since so many people use 6in1, I would have thought this thread would have been loaded up with recipes. I am very disappointed. :(

We just use the tomatoes straight. I don't know if you've tried, but these are the only palatable tomatoes straight from the can. We do put seasoning on our pizza but there is no precooking or mixing of the tomatoes.

However, I do admit that I have recently laced the tomatoes with red wine.  I used the cheap Oak leaf 2.99 cabernet sauvignon bottle. The two go well together, especially on pizza if you are properly fermenting your dough. The ratio was 4 oz wine to 28 oz tomatoes.

Tom,

When I was attempting to reverse engineer and clone the Papa John's pizzas, at http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php?topic=6758.0, I was also trying to do the same with their pizza sauce. For that purpose, I tried the 6-in-1s. The PJ clone sauce, which I describe at http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php?topic=6633.msg56931#msg56931, is on the sweet side but it can be made less sweet by using less sugar. I came to like the sauce after I made it so many times, in some cases with other brands of tomatoes. Standalone sauce threads do not usually get a lot of page views, but the PJ clone sauce thread has over 50,000 page views with little recent activity. So, the PJ pizza sauce must have its fans.

I wouldn't be disappointed in the lack of response to your original post. When we used to have monthly challenges, I started one in which I solicited the members' favorite red pizza sauces. The response was underwhelming, to say the least, as you can see by the four lonely posts, including my opening post, at http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php?topic=9744.msg84540#msg84540. You already have more posts in this thread than I was able to get :-D.

You can try Dave Cavanaugh's Classico tomato sauce recipe (Classico's were pretty much the same tomatoes)

1 teaspoon oregano

2-3 cloves fresh garlic (or dried minced garlic) (substitute with 4-6 tsp garlic powder)

Salt  0.10 tsp (pinch)

Pepper 0.2 tsp (tad)

Or this one that I gleaned from the Pizzeria Luigi thread:

1 can Classico Tomatoes (Peeled Ground or Crushed) 28 oz
Water - 3.6 oz  (optional)
Crushed Red Pepper - ¼ tsp (pinch + dash)
Greek Oregano -  ¾ tsp (3 tads + dash)
Table Salt – (“tall” pinch)
Ground Black Pepper – (tad)
Garlic Powder - ½ tsp + tad
Fresh Basil – 0.65 grams (2 leaves, optional)
Ground Fennel - ½ tsp (optional)
Table Sugar – 1 tsp (optional)

Add freshly grated parmesan cheese or pecorino romano cheese on top of sauce before baking.

Things have never been more like today than they are right now.

That amount of garlic powder struck me as quite a bit for 2-3 cloves of garlic!  So I looked it up manufacturers seem to recommend 1/4 tsp of their garlic powder per clove, some 1/8 tsp.

6-1's are the only crushed tomatoes I use.  As someone noted above, they are great tasting right out of the can.  I don't do much to them.  They always seem sweet enough for my tastes and the most I ever add to a 28oz can is a tsp of dried oregano, and a few grinds of black pepper.

TJ says 1/2 tsp per clove
Durkee says 1/4 tsp per clove
Spice Island says 1/4 tsp per clove

TJ's, at the recipes 4 to 6 tsp, would be 8 to 12 clove equivalents.
Durkee and Spice Island would be 16 to 24 clove equivalents.

I guess one needs to check their bottle.  Plus give it the old smell test!

You went the wrong direction in your math.

1/2 tsp per clove --> 1 tsp = 2 cloves

I went the same way you did, which is the right way. ;D

For 1/2 tsp per clove (2 cloves per tsp):

4 tsp * (2 cloves/tsp) = 8 cloves
6 tsp * (2 cloves/tsp) = 12 cloves

For 1/4 tsp per clove (4 cloves per tsp):

4 tsp * (4 cloves/tsp) = 16 cloves
6 tsp * (4 cloves/tsp) = 24 cloves

That said, anyone can use as much as they want!

I did that yesterday in another context.  Seriously, the heat wave here in So Cal is getting to me.

Hey Tom,

Here is my recipe for using a 28oz can of Centos SM. I recently just acquired the 6 in 1's and will be trying the same recipe. It has a lot of garlic in it, but you can decrease it if needed..... and decrease the onion powder too. use same 2:1 ratio...

1/4-1/2cup water may be  needed.. It's a very thick sauce once its sits in the fridge overnight.

 You can always substitute a 1/4c of red wine too! It adds a completely different flavor profile.

1 T garlic powder
1/2 T onion powder
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/4 tsp ground fennel (optional).. but tasty!

Use an immersion blender for desired consistency and let rest over night in the fridge.

Good Luck, Brian
