Canned pizza sauce

Guy | Nov 7, 2003 02:18 PM

In my never-ending quest to perfect my home-made pizza, I am now happy with my crust recipe/pizza stone/pizza peel technique.

I have now shifted my attention to the sauce. I have tried making my own sauce from fresh and from canned tomatoes, they always have an odd flavor. The best canned sauce I have found far exceeds my homemade efforts. I have tried many canned sauces (Contadina, Furmano, etc.), but my #1 favorite is Don Pepino. It has a bright, fresh tomato flavor, real texture like crushed or finely chopped tomatoes, it's the perfect sauce so far for my homemade pizza efforts.

Any comments on this or other quality pizza sauces? I almost feel like it's cheating to use a canned sauce, but this is so much better than my homemade efforts. Anyone have a recipe for homemade sauce that I might find superior?

Thanks for any input!
