    alcomene's Note:

    This is the most delicious homemade pizza I've eaten. It's a borrowed recipe I tweaked to make lower sodium. It is versatile. It makes a lot of sauce, so you can either make the whole lot or you can make a couple of pizzas and freeze the remaining sauce and use when you are short on time. You can use whatever cheeses and toppings you want in whatever amounts you want. It's really a recipe that is "add to taste." It can be spicy or not. It might take a little work to make the sauce, but it's well worth it!!!

      A little different, but good. I used the roux option and didn't find it spicy, at all. I did love using the Cotija on it. Gave it a nice richness. Thnx for sharing your recipe, alcomene. Made for PAC Fall 2009.
