First Considerations For A Winning Sauce

Sauce is the smallest percentage of ingredient cost, yet it's hugely influential in driving consumers' choice in where to buy a pizza. Perfect your sauce to enhance the whole pizza experience in the most cost-effective way possible.

  • Create robust balance

    A light, fresh sauce feels just right on a crisp crust, while a deep-dish pizza requires a thicker texture to stand up to it's toppings. Consider the whole experience of the pizza when building a suitable sauce.

  • Take flavor personally

    Sauce is, above all, a matter of taste. Incorporate Trifoglio® oils and Katy's Kitchen® spices to optimize the final flavor and texture of each key sauce profile on your menu and draw in customers.

  • Know your tomato

    Villa Frizzoni® has options – from versatile prepared sauces with rich flavor to whole peeled and crushed tomatoes that are ideal for building your own.

Ready to use: Super heavy fully prepared sauce with ripe tomato and basil flavor. Most versatile, consistent, and convenient.

San Marzano style whole peeled: Authentic high-end flavor, best for light Neapolitan-style sauces.

Ground / crushed: Multi-purpose base for a wide range of versatile sauces.

Top Your Best

Use toppings to express your creativity and distinguish your pizza from the pies next door.

Superfoods like avocado, kale, and arugula are among the fastest-growing toppings.*
