The Ingredient That Will Change Your Homemade Pizza Sauce Forever
Food - Drink
If you're fixing to cook up some pizza sauce at home, you'll want to learn about one ingredient that can take it to the next level. According to Kitchn, adding grated parmesan right into a tomato sauce — and not just on top of it — adds depth and savor to the sauce.
It's a great tactic to employ for tomato sauce destined for pizza, and food blogger Ann Fulton agrees. Fulton notes that parmesan "adds a touch of extra thickness, which is especially helpful when spreading on a pizza crust," adding that thin, watery sauce can cause a pizza crust to go soggy.
Fulton also praises parm's mouthwatering umami, which combines with tomatoes that boast a good deal of the "fifth taste," thanks to their high levels of glutamic acid. So, the next time you're baking up a pizza, go ahead and bust out your cheese grater before the pie is done.
