Long before frozen or premade pizza shells were available, 1959, we used boxed hot roll mix. Made great pizza dough. Only problem was, it made 3 big pizzas

Re: Bulk sauces for all those tomatoes

America's Test Kitchen had an amazing recipe for a basic tomato sauce that I use regularly. The recipe is of course based off of canned tomatoes, but I'm sure it would be even better with home-grown tomatoes.

Shred 1/3 cup of white/yellow onion (as in, grate it on a grater). Saute the onion in 2 tbsp of butter (butter brings out the sweetness of the onion). Once the onion begins to brown, add 28 oz of crushed tomatoes, a bit of oregano, and just a little sugar (maybe 1/2 tsp or so). Let simmer for about fifteen minutes to reduce. After it's reduced and nice and thick, take off heat and add some fresh basil and 1 tbsp or so of good extra virgin olive oil and salt and pepper to taste.

I tell you, it's an amazing sauce and very easy (at least from a can). I reckon if you're processing a bunch of tomatoes anyway, it would still be easy. It freezes nicely - I use my foodsaver to vacuum seal it.

I love this sauce idea (I love my America's Test Kitchen cookbooks!) - I already run my onions through the food processor to freeze, so they are already 'grated'! I will have to give this one a try this year.

For the pizza crust, The America's Test Kitchen Cookbook has a fantastic Deep Dish Pizza crust recipe. It has potatoes in the crust which add moisture and make it SO TENDER! I just looked, and the same cookbook has the sauce recipe, so I am SET!

Around here I can buy frozen (and sometimes fresh) dough at the supermarket, and I'm not a big fan of Deep Dish! And normally I'm not a huge recipe follower, and ATK can be a little too, how shall I put it, anal, for me. Smile But that tomato sauce recipe is amazing, and I'm glad they included it in your cookbook. Trust me, if you like a sauce where the tomato flavor comes through, with a touch of sweetness, you'll love that sauce! Smile I only hope my Roma's survive my disaster that I get enough to make a fresh sauce myself.

Personally, I prefer thin crust as well, and the book has a recipe for that but I have never tried it because Hubby doesn't like 'crispy' things! I have never seen the show, but I love the cookbooks. My sister (who doesn't cook much) loves the show and loves to BUY cookbooks, buys the books and sends them to me because I LOVE to try new recipes! For me they are also just fun to read because I love to hear about the science behind why what they tried worked or didn't.

As for numbers, I have 14 tomato plants (and a few more volunteers I keep finding) so I should get enough tomatoes for at least ONE batch of sauce! Very Happy

True, the science behind it is fun, which is why I always liked Good Eats as well! And with 14+ plants, I would think you're certainly going to get tons more tomatoes than I am! Shocked
