The Best Pizza Sauce Ingredients

As you might imagine, pizza sauce is important to us in the pizza business. This is why at New York Slice Company we pay extra to get the best: Stanislaus.  Since we first tasted the Stanislaus tomato sauce in 2008 we realized that the added expense was easily justified. The quality of the ingredients that this family-owned company uses for their pizza sauce is very apparent in the flavor. All you get is a robust tomato taste. But once you read their website you understand that the quality comes from both their dedication to working hard with good intentions AND a complete understanding of the science behind preserving the best tomato flavor.

stanislausLogoStanislaus’ sauce is a “fresh pack” tomato sauce versus a “re-manufactured” sauce. Why is this important?  This is important because the Stanislaus sauce goes through far fewer processing steps. This preserves more of the original flavor of the tomato. Pizzerias preparing pizza sauce made from tomato concentrate or using a re-manufactured processes (developed to reduce the cost of processing tomato sauce) simply don’t taste as fresh or as good.

For us, it isn’t enough to say you have the best ingredients. You have to actually do it. This is why we use the Stanislaus line of pizza products.



New York Slice Company’s Version of a Margherita Pizza

MargheritaPizzaToday, our specialty slice pie is a variation on the always popular Margherita Pizza.  As with everything, there are several different variations on the “tradition” of the Margherita Pizza, like Neapolitan or the Napoletana.  However you slice it, the margherita pizza is generally a simple and light pie with a thin crust, a light to medium helping of sauce and a thin layer or spotted distribution of cheese. Popular variations add basil leaves and fresh tomatoes to the mix. The New York Slice Company twist goes a littler further while maintaining the simplicity of the tradition.

As always, we start with our thin, hand tossed, gourmet crust. Instead of using only a red sauce, we start with a thin layer of our ricotta base and add a thin layer of red sauce on top. Next we add a light spinach garnish, flaked basil, oregano, and minced garlic. We finally top it with a thin layer of mozzarella and provolone and a drizzle of olive oil.

You can order our Margherita Pizza for dine in, carry out, or delivery. They come in 10 inch, 12 inch, and 16 inch and cost $9.95, $14.95, and $17.95 respectively.
