Introduction: Simple Pizza Sauce

Great Pizza Sauce should be "just like a' mama made it" back in the old traditional days. Less is totally more when it comes to sauce. If you over-flavor the sauce, it will detract from the base and pull from the topping. 

True Neapolitan Pizza has a harmony of base, tomato sauce, and cheese. A great pizza should be satisfying without too much else. Our sauce recipe today will testify to this. 

Be conservative with us, you will see it for yourself.
