Like many of us, you may discover that every time you try a pizza sauce recipe, the result tastes like spaghetti or other pasta sauce, not what you are used to having on pizzas. If you suffer from this problem, you might be looking for an uncooked pizza sauce recipe! It may sound strange, but real Neapolitan pizza has a sauce that has never been cooked until it goes into the oven.
Seasoning is even avoided in some recipes. After all, the toppings can provide an excellent seasoning all on your own. This uncooked pizza sauce recipe uses a few seasonings, but you can adjust them to your own preferences. Try an uncooked pizza sauce and see what a difference it can make in your home-cooked pizza. You will never go back to the stuff in a can after this.
