|I had been using just plain no name brands of whole tomatoes for years now.|
Curt from Curt's Delectable Creations Blog introduced me to San Marzano whole tomatoes. I had always been intrigued to try them but they were always so pricey, I couldn't believe they would be that different to spend the extra money on them. I was wrong, they are fresh tasting and made one of the best sauces I ever tasted. Curt made this great pizza sauce with them and after that I was hooked on the sauce and using these tomatoes. I now make his recipe for pizza sauce and actually I have to say not only was the sauce good this pizza disappeared in 5 minutes. As a matter of fact they didn't wait for it to cool and burned the roof of our mouths on the cheese!
Ever done that before?
Here is the link to his pizza sauce and our family dough recipe below:
