2 large thin crust pizzas


Raw Tomato Sauce



Raw Tomato Sauce

  1. Drain the tomatoes, keeping the juice in a bowl. Remove and discard the seeds and any vegetation liquid in the tomatoes. With you hands, coarsely crush the tomatoes. Place the crushed tomatoes back in the reserved juice and combine with the remaining ingredients. Season with salt and pepper.


  1. On the rack in the middle position of the oven, place a pizza stone or an upside-down baking sheet. Preheat the oven to 230 °C (450 °F).
  2. In a skillet, brown the mushrooms in the oil. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.
  3. Divide the dough in half. On a floured work surface, stretch or roll out a dough ball into a 35-cm (14-inch) disc, leaving a thick border. Place on parchment paper. Spread 250 ml (1 cup) of the tomato sauce over the entire surface. Shred the meat of one sausage and scatter over the sauce with half the mushrooms. Bake for about 12 minutes. Top with half the mozzarella cheese. Continue cooking for about 5 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and the cheese has melted. Repeat with the remaining ingredients for a second pizza.


If you seed the tomatoes, you'll have a much smoother sauce. By removing the vegetation water inside the tomatoes, you will also get a thicker sauce.

  1. typo error under 'pizza' --I think you mean 'Pizza Dough for 8',--not 48--it seems you use a vocal program, a chuckle really; anyway would be delicious--but I would prefer to precook sausage a bit to reduce amount of greasiness (like the cheese greasiness, though). Maybe even a bit of microwave cooking would do that
