My brothers and I all prefer the no-cook pizza sauce, and my little sister prefers the cooked one. However, as majority always rules in my family, I do not cook the pizza sauce.

I know people say that pizza sauce is best made with San Marzano tomatoes in this recipe. I have never personally used them, and this pizza sauce still tastes delicious. If you do want to use San Marzano tomatoes be sure to check that they are canned and whole. If the tomatoes are not canned or not whole, then they are not San Marzano tomatoes. San Marzano tomatoes are only ever whole and always come canned.
