Alot of Pizza Sauce recipes request Tomato Paste. Many Italians will not agree with this! The tomato paste really makes the flavor of the sauce much stronger and it can really dominate the pizza. But this doesnt mean it is bad! On the contrary this may just be the pizza sauce you are looking for. At first, when you take a mouth watering bite, the sauce is upfront tantalizing your taste buds and the other ingredients come in behind.
- Sugar? For this recipe it probably makes the most sense. It softens the acidity and sweetens the sauce. Add a tsp and adjust to your taste.
- No Garlic Powder. Either use real garlic or just go to the store and get a jar of store bought crap.
- For sure you can play with the herbs. Since this sauce is dominating the pizza, you can make it more complex by adding additional herbs!
