After trying sooooo many sauce bases, recipes, spices still with no success, I was wondering if anyone would like to attempt reverse-engineering a sauce from one of our local pizza places. I've litterally tried so many product/spice combinations I couln't even tell you how many I've tried--50+?, none being close to a pizza place sauce. Being so inexperienced with spices/etc. I'm not quite sure what to try next. Probably my favorite sauce is from Sahara Pizza. It has a VERY distinct smell/taste. I assume it is a specific spice but I cannot identify it. Thought it could possibly be fresh basil but I doubt a pizza chain like that would be going to such lengths. Pizza factory is another great sauce, very different from Sahara. Also, Pizza Pipeline, I know it has a little zip of cayenne in it but have no idea on the other spices might be in it? Anyway, I would even be willing to freeze/ship samples from these places if they are not local to your area.
