Storage of Fresh Tomatoes for WFO Pizzas
« on: August 23, 2013, 12:42:16 PM »
My garden tomatoes are coming in hard and heavy right now. No way my pizza-making can keep up with the onslaught.

I have made some cooked sauce to use on my indoor, pizza stone-based pizzas this fall and winter. Froze it in a Ziploc bag. That's pretty easy.

But freezing fresh, uncooked romas seems like a bad idea, since the tomatoes will likely break down and be watery.

I'm not a canning jar guy. Does anyone have any tips on storing/freezing fresh tomatoes for use in WFO Neapolitan pizzas later in the year?

Freezing tomatoes gets you tomato mush, no good for pizza sauce in my opinion, not only this, but it can lead to a huge pain when you actually want to use them after they are sitting in the freezer. The only advice I can give you is to use a simpler waterbath canning recipe instead of the longer pressure method. I waterbath most of my tomato sauce and it tastes great.
