Last week Sarah and Ted came for lunch and for entertainment for 5 year old Ted we made pizzas, using Cirio Pizzassimo Pizza Sauce as a topping, and we were very very impressed. Thick and deeply flavoured, rich, sweet, dark red and bursting with tomatoes with the perfect amount of herbs added without any of the bitter and slightly metallic taste you sometimes get from tinned tomato based sauces.
Ted had a lovely time spreading the sauce, simply dollop it on the pizza and spread around with the back of a spoon.
One 400g tin will cover around 3×12″ pizzas. At £1.09 (Ocado) for a 400g can it is certainly cheaper and easier than making your own pizza sauce, I imagine it will also go very well with pasta. Very highly recommended.
It would be nice to get it in smaller cans, but the sauce freezes well so it is not really a problem.
Many thanks to Cirio for my samples of their products.
