Pizza Sauce

Thin crust pizzas usually call for a more delicate sauce than thick crust — and you only use a little bit. Here are versions for both an uncoooked version, for thin crusts, and a more hearty version for your thicker crusts. Freeze leftover sauce in muffin tins, then transfer to a zip-lock bag. Usually use 1/4 cup per pizza.

UNCOOKED (for thin crust)

  • 28 oz whole San Marzano tomatoes
  • 6 ~ 8 cloves garlic
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 tsp balsamic vinegar, plus more to taste
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. Cut each tomato in half, then drain, reserving sauce for another use
  2. Add all other ingredients and blend
