    The most important thing to remember when saucing a pizza is easy does it. You’d be amazed how little sauce you actually need for a perfectly balanced pizza. Put on too much and you’ll end up with a soggy mess. It should look like it needs more. You should be thinking, “That’s not nearly enough.” If that is the case, you’ve done it right.Report

      You know, I’m not 100% sure on this. I recently switched allegiances for my local joint, because the old one was sometimes skimping on the sauce. If it’s a good sauce, you want to get some, you feel me?Report

        I’m not saying no sauce. Just that you’d be surprised how far it goes. You can have too little sauce. But it is far more likely that a home chef applies too much. If you can’t see the dough — if it is obscured by a solid layer of sauce — you’ve gone too far.Report

    My two cents is that you should definitely used crushed tomatoes, because it gives it just the right texture. That may be a subjective matter, but my kids all agree with me, so there.Report
