What's your go to pizza sauce recipe?
« on: July 25, 2017, 10:36:11 AM »
So I've been making pizza on and off.  I enjoy pizza way more than my wife does.  Our 3.5 year old loves it too.

My wife is a fan of BOLD flavors and my sauces always seem to turn out too watery.

What your go to sauce recipe?

Lately I've been taking a 28oz can of WP tomatoes, break them apart and strain for a bit, 30+ mins.  Cook down the juice/sauce until it's between tomato sauce and paste consistancy.  Blend that with the torn WP tomatoes.  Water should not be an issue now, if it's too thick, add a lil water.  I use about 1/4 to 1/2 tsp salt depending on the sodium content of the tomatoes.  Then 1 tsp dried oregano, 1 tsp granulated garlic, 1 tsp black pepper, 1/2 tsp dried basil, 1/4 tsp sugar.  It's a pretty bold sauce.  You can add more sugar if necessary but we prefer the tangy sauce around here.

It's ends up being around 16oz of finished sauce.  Best of luck!

6 in 1 with just a little salt, or San Marzano with a little salt depending on the the pizza I am making.  I like a bright tomato flavor.

28 oz can crushed tomatoes (Wal Mart, Kroger or Smart & Final brand,
Code on the can is 5TPCG OL or 5TGPK OL )
¼ tsp fresh ground black pepper (optional)
½ tsp salt
1-2 tsp oregano
1TB of oil (olive, grapeseed or avocado)
1/2 clove garlic or ½ Dorot frozen garlic cube or ¼ tsp garlic powder (or ½ clove equiv)
1/8 tsp (dash) crushed red pepper
 
 Add salt and black pepper (if used) directly to the canned tomatoes.
 
Put the oil and all the spices into a small microwave safe container such as a ramekin or a coffee cup.  Ensure that all the spices are wet from being covered in olive oil.  Microwave the mixture for two minutes at 30% power.
Things have never been more like today than they are right now.

I've been trying to improve my sauce making skills as of late and after trying various recipes, I've found I like a bolder sauce as well. I've found that red wine vinegar and a cayenne/paprika mix both help with that. The sauce comes out a bit too spicy and tangy, but weighed down by crust and cheese, it'll come through just right. I've also found a tiny bit of honey can help to round off the added boldness.

I use to recommend Penzey's pizza seasoning to help make sauce but no longer.

Right now it is nothing else than fresh, garden ripe tomatoes from our garden. Thin slice, place between towels to dry, lightly oil the dough skin and add some fresh sliced garlic or crushed garlic out of a jar, then roll up some fresh basil leaves and cut into strips and sprinkle over the oiled skin, add the sliced tomato and dress the pie as desired. A real treat this time of the year for us! When fresh tomatoes are not available canned whole tomatoes work well, just drain well and tear into pieces and add over the top of the skin as you would the sliced tomato. Our problem is that we like the flavor of the chunky tomato...its different than when made into a sauce.

Right now it's crushed tomatoes, a few leaves of chopped fresh basil, dried oregano, olive oil, salt, and sometimes a pinch of sugar.  Let it marinate at room temperature for 30 minutes before baking.

In the future, I'd like to experiment with fresh tomatoes.  This summer I made a pomodoro sauce using a mix of heirlooms and roma tomatoes from the farmers market that was out of this world.  I couldn't help but wonder how it would fare on pizza.
