Gemma’s Pro Tips To Making Pizza Sauce

  • If you don’t have canned tomatoes, fresh tomatoes work just as well! Drop fresh tomatoes in boiling water for a few seconds then transfer to an ice bath to loosen the skin. Chop the tomatoes or crush with your hands. Since they have a lot of moisture, be sure to strain the liquid out through a sieve.
  • Not heating the ingredients gives the sauce a fresher flavor. Go from the blender to the top of your pizza dough.
  • Use a ladle to spread the sauce on your dough, ensuring that you don’t press down on the dough itself.
  • For an added boost of umami flavor, add a filet of anchovy! It will be blended throughout the sauce and those who think they don’t like anchovies (they’re secretly in a lot of delicious dishes!) will be none the wiser.
  • Salt to taste!

How To Store Pizza Sauce

Store your sauce in a resealable container in your refrigerator for up to a week. Or, freeze the sauce in ice cube trays. Once frozen, remove from the trays and keep in a plastic bag in the freezer for up to 8 weeks. Use about 5 cubes for a large pizza, microwaving before spreading onto your dough.
