Favuzzi pizza tomato sauce

Description

Made with a rich chopped tomato base, our pizza sauce contains caramelized onion pieces that impart a velvety texture. Its balanced flavour lets subtle notes of garlic and oregano shine through.

Uses

Our pizza sauce is the perfect consistency to spread easily, without being too runny (which could make the dough soggy). Add extra flavour with our Favuzzi Italian herb blend or our hot chili purée. For a particularly delicious pizza, top with our famous Favuzzi candied tomatoes.

Distinctives attributes

Nothing rivals with the taste of Italian tomatoes ripened under the Mediterranean sun and seasoned with fresh, locally grown aromatics. If our sauces have a velvety texture, comparable to a homemade sauce, it is partly because they are prepared in small batches and cooked over an open flame, the same technique traditionally used by Italian mammas, allowing the water to evaporate gradually.

Artisan

The De Laurentiis family owns an artisanal business in the Abruzzo mountain region. For two generations, it has been drawing on traditional ingredients and know-how to offer products with an authentically Italian taste. The family grows organic tomatoes, saffron and other seasonings on its own plots of land, and turns them into sauces and condiments thanks to a veritable regiment of cooks who busily tend the ovens.

Origin

Roccascalegna, Abruzzo, Italy.

Ingredients

Tomato pulp and sieved datterino tomatoes 88% (Italy), extra virgin olive oil, garlic, onion, carrot, celery, basil, sea salt, oregano, pepper, citric acid. May contain traces of milk, pine nuts.

Conservation

Refrigerate after opening and use within 3 to 4 days. Contains no preservatives.

The artisanal business Casina Rossa (red house in Italian) has been based in the Abruzzo mountains for two generations. The cooks prepare typically Italian specialties following their grandmothers’ methods, such as simmering tomato sauces over low heat. The company focuses on using the best local products and superior quality ingredients. The artisans’ talent and know-how are the reason Favuzzi chose them to make its branded tomato sauces and truffle olive oil.
