Garlic sauce with pizza in Puno, Peru?

Manybears | Sep 2, 2009 01:26 PM

Hi there,

I had great pizza in Puno. I'm not even sure it was the best you can get in town but it was delicious anyway (and cheap). The restaurant was homey and about 50-50 mix of tourists and Peruvians, on Av. Lima. It's possible that it was El Buho but I'm really not sure.

I am wondering if anyone can identify the garlicky sauce it was served with. It was so garlicky it had a bite to it, but in trying to replicate it with pure garlic I didn't manage to get the creamy consistency. Does anyone know the name of this sauce or have any ideas? I am not sure if it is a common condiment for pizza in Peru or not.
