Traditional Pizza Sauce
Open a can of tomatoes and taste it. You may like the taste of one brand over another. I have used all kinds of tomatoes for my sauce so they all work fine for pizza sauce.
Some pizza chefs say that combining the herbs with the tomatoes sauce without cooking it works fine for making a pizza sauce. I find that cooking the pizza sauce for a short while brings out more of the flavors of the herbs.
Start with good quality tomatoes! Try some of the imported brands. San Marzano tomatoes are imported from the San Marzano region of Italy and are my favorite.
How To Make
Saute garlic in 2 tablespoons of olive oil (until lightly brown) Add the tomato sauce and all the ingredients. Stir and heat until the sauce comes to a boil and then put a lid on your pot and turn it off. Let your pizza sauce cool and it is ready to use.
Herbs for pizza sauce
One of the traditional herbs for a pizza sauce is oregano.
You may like to add some other herbs such as crushed fennel seed, parsley, mint, cayenne pepper or dried onions.
Experiment and create your own unique tasting pizza sauce
I have come up with some great pizza sauces by combining different herbs (a small amount at a time), and then tasting the sauce.
