    I think this might get me a lot of negative attention, but If you don't ask then you don't learn. I've read reviews from some sights that Hunt's Whole pealed tomatoes were the best and other sites say Trader Joe's canned tomatoes were better. Is there any way you can do the same thing with Hunt's tomatoes or Del Monte whole pealed tomatoes or even stewed tomatoes?

    In some other pizza-making sauce video I saw, they cooked the sauce for 2-3 hours. That's not that great for the nutrients, but it makes the taste better (maybe this sauce is better when using a very high-degree stone-oven?).

    Nice sauce. But California is getting no love in this video. We grow gorgeous San Marzanos here in California. Why wouldn't we? We have every climate you can imagine, including wonderful Mediterranean sea breezes, even where I live 70 miles inland. There are cuts in each of the mountain chains between here and the coast that let the lovely marine air reach this fertile valley. Wonderful wine grape and tomato country.

    San Marzano DPO tomatoes are too expensive for me but would Classico Pear Tomatoes do with this recipe? Thanks mate.

    you used the wrong tomatoes. If they werent plum, then i guess they were salad tomatoes, which are more watery. go to an organic market and get fresh plum… san marzano if you can find them.

    To me pizza sauce shouldn't taste like the typical spaghetti or marinara sauce that is most of the pizza sauce recipes that I've seen on the tube. A special blend of spices is needed to give the pizza that flavor that says, " I'm a pizza NOT pasta!"

    The wood oven might be what my pizza/sauce is missing … or using San Marzano tomatoes. Either way I can't seem to get the sauce flavor just right or anything like the pizza I used to get in the late 1960's in NYC. Those sidewalk pizza nook vendors behind a sliding glass window had the best pizza I ever tasted back then. But, then again, the only pizza I'd ever had before that was always made from a box called Appian Way pizza or Jiffy.

    Nina brand "San Marzanos" (not true San Marzanos but are grown in the S.M. region) are sold at Costco in 6 pound cans for 4 bucks. Can hardly tell the difference.

    @Aprilshowersss, I have had some SM cans that were not as good as others, but have had great success with Cento Organic San Marzano (DOP). Also, I have found one produced in the U.S. that has been a great substitute when I could not get Cento or Nina. All have been sweet, low acidic, and no bitterness. Also, another reason your perception of San Marzano is "bland" may be because in many Tuttorosso tomato products have spices added, and are loaded down with sugar and soybean oil — not good!

    i make mine the same way. Only important thing is the quality of the canned tomatoes, and San Marazano are the best in my opinion.

    Was surprised at how simple it was when i saw the ingredients on the table, but it makes sense.

    Quality tomatoes are delicious on their own. Why bog them down with too many different ingredients.

    Also got to agree with Doblo. In North America, pizza sauce is often a very big let down. It's either not that great, or there simply isn't enough of it on the pizza.

    I agree that San Marzano are the best tomatoes for pizza or marinara sauce. Very fresh. I use even the juice for my sauce since it gives an additional flavoring.

    Hi everybody.
    I am Italian and I completely agree with the man in the video.
    San Marzano tomato is the best and the most important ingredient for a real Italian pizza.
    But you can enjoy the San Marzano taste in a "pasta sauce" or, with fishes, cooked in the South-Italian way.
    Remember guys: good pizza = first quality flour, San Marzano tomato, Italian cheese "Mozzarella", real and original Italian olive oil "Extravergine" and the original Italian Pizza is cooked in a firewood furnace.

    1st time i real real italian pizza I was in Milano made by italian asians and one of the biggest differences (and improvements) in taste (compared to american) is the sauce. The sauce here in US isn't great, and sauce is like 1/3rd of the entire pizza so having good sauce can mean the difference of good pizza (by good i'm excluding fast food pizza) and pizza that was so good you wont forget about it. although the sauce in my pizza i'm pretty sure wasn't this

    It's a good story. The San Marzano tomato is a premium canned tomato from Italy — just south of Naples in the shadow of Mt. Vesuvius. They are a tightly regulated product, much like Champagne or Chianti. Each can has a stamp to show its authenticity.

    You can get real San Mazanos from the Forno Bravo Store (online), or check your local high-end market. Beware of copies. They aren't the same.

    The tomatoes are incredible. Each one is this perfect little tomato. You should not cook the sauce if you are using a wood-fired oven, because the temperatures are hot enough to cook the sauce and cheese all at the same time.

    I would give it a try using a pizza stone and see how it does in your oven.
