  • Pizza Crust
Pizza Sauce
  • 28 oz can whole tomatoes
  • ¼ - 1 tsp sugar
  • Pinch of salt, to taste
  • Pinch of dried oregano, to taste, crushed
  • Pinch of grated romano, optional
Neapolitan-Style Pizzas
  • Fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced
  • Fresh basil
  • Any other pizza toppings
Pizza Sauce
  1. Mix all of the ingredients with a masher or hand-held blending device to mash up the tomatoes.
  2. I prefer leaving some chunks so that the sauce is not too runny.
  3. Cover the sauce with plastic wrap and let it chill overnight so that the flavors can marinate together.
  4. Bring it to room temperature for an hour or so before you will use it.
  5. (It can be used immediately if you do not have time to let it rest overnight but there won’t be as much depth to the flavor.)
Neapolitan-Style Pizza
  1. Take one of the pizza dough balls and begin pulling into a circle. You don't want to roll it out with a rolling pin because this will make it tough.
  2. Pull and press the dough into a circle on a lightly floured wooden pizza wheel.
  3. Spread pizza sauce over the crust, using less sauce in the center. Remember that with the sauce and all of the ingredients -- less is more!!
  4. Cover the sauce with slices of mozzarella cheese and any other toppings.
  5. Slide the pizza from the pizza wheel on to the pre-heated pizza stone (on the bricks in the bbq).
  6. Cook for 5-8 minutes until the top is charred and the pizza dough is done.
