Last weekend I helped host a bachelorette weekend for my friend and future bride Meredith. The night before the bridal shower, I made Meredith’s favorite food for dinner. Pizza!
Now that I’m writing for Slice, the heat is really on to make some superlative pies. My favorite tip so far? Michelle once told me that the key to great pizza sauce is to not cook it — and I had always simmered my sauce on the stove first. She liked to blitz a can of San Marzano tomatoes in a blender with some salt and garlic, and then ladle the raw sauce onto the dough. The tomatoes heat up in the oven, and the taste remains fresh and vibrant. Genius.
