In case you were wondering, pizza night is still very much a staple in this home's weekly routine. I haven't bothered to assign a specific day as "pizza night" so that I can use it as my go-to meal when I want dinner to be easy. We've started using fresh mozzarella on occasion and can't wait to top it with fresh tomatoes from my grandpa's garden. Now that I think about it, I'm completely amazed that we don't eat pizza every single night.
But we have a problem.
Up until now we've used pesto as our base layer for all of our pizza. It is delicious. I love it so much. But N8tr0n is ready for red sauce, and I'm at a loss. Any red sauce I've made for a pizza in the past has been sub-par and I'm not willing to sully our current run of delicious pizza with lack luster red sauce.
So I need your help. Do you have a fan-freakin'-tastic pizza sauce recipe you can share with me? Something that you swear by every time you make pizza? The kind of sauce that highlights the other ingredients rather than drawing attention to itself because of it's mediocrity. Not watery, not bland, just like your favorite pizza place only better.
I'm turning to the experts. Can you help me? Pretty please? I'll share the perfect recipe with everyone once I find it and, AND, I'll share my recipe for homemade pesto. It's a recipe from an actual Italian chef who owned his own restaurant and graciously shared some of his recipes with me. Sound tempting?
Thank you, thank you. I can't wait to try your recipes.
