If you're making a quick pizza using store-bought dough
, there's no need to wait for the sauce to cook before you spread it on the crust, says Warner, who learned this tip from the experts at the famed Brooklyn pizzeria Roberta's
. Simply pour a can of whole, peeled tomatoes, 3 tablespoons of olive oil and 2 cloves of garlic into a blender (a Vitamix
is ideal, since its high speed helps emulsify the oil and the water from the tomatoes; but an immersion blender will do the job, too). In a minute or two, you'll have instant pizza sauce, ready to be spread on crust, sprinkled with cheese and baked.
