A pizza sauce should have a lot of aroma, a thick consistency and a balance of flavors between the acidity of the tomato and the salt.
- In pizza sauce it is very important to use fresh oregano, this gives it a lot of aroma. Tomatoes should be red or ripe, but not damaged. Sometimes the tomato may have an acid smell, this is due to the ph of the food itself, if this is the case add a pinch of sugar, this way you will eliminate the acidity and stabilize the flavor of the pizza sauce.
- If you use tomatoes in cans or tomatoes in sauce, they generally have a high salt content so the amount of salt you use should be less.
- This sauce can be used in other recipes, for example: in the putanesca sauce, arrabiata, or in the bolognese sauce.
