Simple tomato sauce used for Neapolitan style pizzas is a must. Although traditionally San Marzano tomatoes are used, you can substitute fresh plum tomatoes that have been blanched and peeled. The ideal tomato will have bright acidity and high mineral content for a more complex flavor. Looking for the best tomatoes? Read this article and choose the right ones! https://www.kettlepizza.com/choose-tomatoes-wisely-for-the-perfect-neapolitan-pizza-sauce-recipe-included/
- 1 Can San Marzano Tomatoes (Drained)
- 1 Tsp Kosher Salt
- 1 Tsp Freshly Ground Pepper
- 1 Tsp Dried Oregano
- 3 Tsp extra virgin olive oil
- In a large bowl, use your hands to squeeze the San Marzano tomatoes to get the correct consistency. You’re not looking for a refined sauce, so some pulp and chunks are fine. Next, pick out any basil leaves and tomato core if present in the canned tomatoes. Move the tomatoes to a large pan or pot and cook down the ingredients (including the Kosher salt, dried oregano, black pepper, and extra virgin olive oil) for 10 minutes. That’s it, your pizza sauce is ready.
