NYC Pizza Sauce Recipe Done Right

Do you love NY pizza sauce? If that thin crust taste is what you have been craving, you are not alone. However, outside of New York, there are not too many places that can really reproduce that flavor. One of the key parts of making sure you are getting true NY pizza is the sauce. A good NYC pizza sauce recipe is essential.

The best news is that it does not even have to be hard to make. This EZ NY pizza sauce goes together in a very short time and requires no cooking, but you will say it is one of the best you have ever tasted. Do not be afraid of the olive oil – it does not make this sauce greasy, and it is required to get that authentic taste. In the end, great pizza is worth it!

If you make an authentic New York style crust but do not use a NY sauce, your pizza will only be half-authentic, so go the whole way and make it authentic from start to finish, and your palate will thank you for it. As well as some canned diced tomatoes you will need herbs and garlic, along with some salt and sugar.

All of these will blend perfectly to yield that authentic flavor you want to get. Simply stir together these ingredients and you can expect a lovely New York style sauce in next to no time, or perhaps a couple of minutes. Spread this delicious homemade sauce over your pizza crusts and then get ready to add toppings. Be generous with the toppings. New York pizza slices are designed to fold up so you can eat them that way.
