perfect tomato sauce for pizza
OK, I've cooked mine now for tonight. For future reference, how would you make a perfect tomato sauce for homemade pizza? The pizza will probably also have mozzarella, perhaps some other cheese, mushrooms and pepperoni. Italians particularly welcome.

onions tomatoes garlic fresh basil and sundried tomato puree.

or, for white pizzq, low fat philli with garlic and herbs. then spinach and mozzerella on top.

I am lazy cook :-)

I just take half a carton of passata and simmer it for ten minutes with salt (if it's unsalted passata), pepper, dried oregano and fresh basil. Seems to work pretty well.

I fry a bit of onion in olive oil, add a tin of chopped peeled tomatoes and simmer til it reduces and thickens a bit. Can also add garlic when you fry the onion, and/or parsley and basil right at the end of the simmering, before it goes on the pizza.

Mine's a lot like that, but with added tom puree, sugar and salt, plus water, and a long simmer.

Wait, for pizza, you need to talk to a Chicagoan.

The trick is you don't use sauce. You put the ingredients that would be a sauce on the pizza and let the baking create the sauce for you.

Ooh that's a nice idea!
