Italian Pizza Sauce & Crust

 
Italian Pizza Sauce & Crust
121

The bottom of the pizza, called the "crust", may vary widely according to style—thin as in a typical hand-tossed pizza or Roman pizza, or thick as in a typical pan pizza or Chicago-style pizza. It is traditionally plain, but may also be seasoned with garlic, or herbs, or stuffed with cheese.

If you can, always make everything from scratch, this is my motto. For pizza, sauce is very essential. Made a pizza with this pizza sauce the other day. I had to say this pizza sauce was tasty , thick and gave the pizza lots of flavor. It was simple and easy to put everything together and well worth the effort.
