Pizza Sauce

Recipe by Peter Campbell

It’s Pizza Week in the AZ Cooks kitchen, and we’ve recruited our friend and pizza guru Peter Campbell, chef/owner of Minneapolis’ Red Wagon Pizza Co., to share his tips for creating restaurant quality pizza at home. The sauce is one of the most important elements of the pizza. If you have a little extra time and ripe tomatoes to use up, try Campbell’s roasted tomato sauce. If you don’t have access to fresh ingredients, you can simply take quality canned tomatoes and zhoosh them up with a few dried spices for an easy pizza sauce that comes together in minutes.
