2 facts jointly produce a flavorful pizza sauce: Ingredients, and simmering.
To cook well the aromatics and blend the flavors, simmering is key. The longer you simmer your sauce, the more enhanced the flavor will be.
Not at all. As I mentioned earlier, you will have your pizza sauce ready in no time. You can prepare your sauce while working on your pizza dough. If you will have your tomatoes ready ahead of time, your pizza sauce will not take a maximum of 30 minutes including simmering time.
To prepare the sauce, first, you need to fry the minced garlic for 2 minutes in olive oil. Then add the tomatoes, tomato paste, sugar, and seasonings, and bring to a boil. Finally, once boiled, lower the heat and let it simmer for 20 minutes. If you prefer a thick consistency of the sauce, you can simmer it for 30 minutes instead.
Just like homemade ketchup, the top pick for pizza sauce is plum tomatoes. Red plum tomatoes are the ideal choice to prepare a condensed tomato-flavored pizza sauce. However, if you do not get your hands-on plum tomatoes, it is not the end of the world. Most importantly, aim for red tomatoes as they will be well ripened, and tend to be juicier and more flavorful.
This is a simple exercise:
Of course. After all, you do not want to get your money wasted. And frankly, this sauce is so delicious to be thrown away. Freezing pizza sauce makes it last for months and can be done in either large batches or smaller batches based on the serving size of your pizzas.
