How to Make a Great Pizza Sauce
Producing a really good pizza depends on two major items. The first is making a great pizza dough for the type of pizza you want to make. I have placed a good dough recipe on Hubpages, that will work fine, for regular thin pizza. The second part is coming up with a great pizza sauce recipe, and that is what this article is about.
With a great dough recipe, and a great pizza sauce recipe, you are well on your way towards having an outstanding pizza. The other part is having a good supplier that always sells you top grade pizza supplies. You want a low moisture, part skim mozzarella cheese that is about fifteen days old when you get it. The time for the use on mozzarella cheese, is when the cheese is between fifteen and about 28 days old.
The number one item that is ordered for a topping is pepperoni. 35% of all single topping pizzas are pepperoni pizzas. Make sure you always get a top quality pepperoni for your pizza place. The other four toppings that are really popular are Italian sausage, mushrooms, onions and black olives. You want to have a top quality cheese and about ten different toppings for your pizzeria. With that you should be able to build a good pizza business. Now we will look at how to make a great pizza sauce.
Putting the sauce together
In putting a great pizza sauce together, you will want to follow a carefully prepared recipe. Using the right ingredients you will always come up with a good pizza sauce. The first item is using the right tomato puree.
I only use full red tomato puree. If you can get it, don't use anything else. The following recipe is for use with two cans of tomato puree. You weigh all the spice ingredients together in a bowl, mix them together, and then mix them into the tomato puree. You should also use a half can of cold water, to rinse out the two puree cans and then mix it with the tomato puree to thin it. The following are the ingredients you mix with the thinned tomato puree.
8oz of sugar
3oz of salt
2oz of granulated garlic
1.5oz of crushed Oregano
1/2oz of black pepper
If you can, let the finished pizza sauce cold Blanche in the refrigerator for about 8 hours before using. Use it all within three days, for best results.
You now have one of the two main parts of making a great pizza. With this recipe and a good dough recipe, you should be able to run a successful pizza place. In the article, how to run a successful pizza business, I explain the money needed and how to start, how to market and other things needed to be a success. I hope you find the information useful and you can be a major success.
