How To Make The Best Damn Pizza Sauce

How To Make The Best Damn Pizza Sauce

A killer pizza sauce is the backbone of a stellar pizza.  It can make or break your pie and is often way over thought. At Baking Steel, we use a very simple, quick-process sauce. It literally takes about 2 minutes to make and the only equipment required is a blender/food processor.  No more bubbling pots simmering in your kitchen for hours. Keep this in mind, the pizza sauce is going to cook in the oven on the pizza, which is just enough time to get some heat while not losing any tomato freshness.

Sous vide eggs benedict pizza is a fresh twist on a breakfast classic.  We're using the traditional components, such as Hollandaise Sauce, but instead of poached eggs, we are using eggs cooked in a sous vide bath. The Canadian Bacon was seared on the Mini, and our "english muffin" is actually a 250-gram size pizza dough.  Take a break from the norm this weekend!  Our sous vide eggs bendict pizza is perfect for any Sunday morning brunch.  Happy Eating!

New and Improved English Muffin Recipe

New and Improved English Muffin Recipe

With our recipe, we struggled a bit with cook time and the resulting product.  The English Muffins would cook for about 9 minutes per side or 18 minutes in total.  They were good, but with all that cook time, they would come out a little hard and/or dry. Add an additional 3-4minutes in a toaster, and zip zap, any remaining "moisture" was gone! These muffins were moving in the right direction, but they were not ready for prime time.

Sprite Pizza Dough Recipe

Sprite Pizza Dough Recipe

Last week we were feeling playful and decided to pour a bottle of Sprite into our pizza dough. A little science experiment, so to speak.  We substituted sprite for the water, one for one. We were curious what would happen by adding all that sugar and carbonation into the pizza dough.  The final answer?  Not a heck, of a lot.
