Well, I remain inspired and have been making a 14" Chicago Style Pizza, virtually every Friday night.
I thought it might be helpful to give my take on the various brands of tomatoes I've used in the past. Order has nothing to do with my preference, (except I saved the best for last). All cans were 28 oz.
Progresso Crushed and Peeled - This was the first brand that I used many years ago. Not bad, but a bit bland. Chock full of seeds. More of a puree consistency. Required lengthy drain time (about 30 minutes). Been a long time (several years) since I've even them in the stores around here, so I don't know if it's an active product.
HyVee Crushed Tomatoes - Local grocer brand. Extremely salty, little or no flavor. More watery than other brands. Puree consitency, not too many, if any, noticeable tomato bits. Required an extremely lengthy drain time (more than 30 minutes). Highly acidic based on the reflux factor.
Dei Fratelli Crushed Tomatoes - Picked up at local WalMart. Contains added Citric Acid. Other than the added Citric Acid, these tomatoes were very, very good. Flavorful, and not salty. Semi-puree consitency with smaller tomato bits. Required a normal drain time (about 20 minutes).
Great Value Crushed Tomatoes (WalMart Brand) - These were on a par with the Dei Fratelli tomatoes, for two of the three cans I tried. The last can must have come from either a different production batch or a different supplier. They were bland, unflavorful, and a real disappointment. Required normal drain time.
6 In 1 Crushed Tomatoes - Ordered direct. These have no added Citric Acid, are not salty to the taste, and are full of flavor. Have noticed some skins, but that may be normal and does not bother me. I don't know if these are peeled or unpeeled, but I suspect unpeeled. Of all the brands I've tried, these had the best consistency with noticeable small chunks of tomato. Required normal drain time.
