      This is a great recipe ! Next time I would puree the veg. before adding tomatoes, etc. I used fresh ground pepper so it was a little hot. I like it spicy but you could use less pepper or table pepper to lessen the hotness. Other than that, made 12 mason jars full ....great gifts idea for those away from home!

      I lived in Pictou County for a good while and ate my fair share of pizza from the big 3 (Sam's, Acropole, and Alice's), and this recipe is nowhere close to the 'brown sauce' the region has become famous for.

      I'm certainly not trying to be rude either but this recipe is insane. The amounts of some of the ingredients are just beyond comprehension....2 cups of flour??? 2 cups of oil? I wouldn't feed the finished product to a swine. No joke. 1/2 cup of pepper? Look, this recipe is bogus. Plain and simple. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO MAKE THIS RECIPE. I have made it a personal mission to nail down the real recipe (as close as possible) and will be sharing it on here, facebook, etc. In the meantime, save your time and ingredients.

      Maybe I just didn't follow the recipe correctly, but when I tried to make this recipe, I found it tasted and looked like slop. It certainly wasn't Pictou County Pizza sauce. It was almost like a gravy as opposed to pizza sauce. I will attempt it again, but this time, it certainly wasn't what I was looking for.

      This recipe is tasty but 100% definitely not the famous sauce of the big three (acropole, sams trenton, Alices). This sauce is red and does not come out brown like pictou county pizza sauce. I have heard rumours of lard being the secret ingredient? I did puree all the veggies before adding to sauce. I would add more onions, garlic, mushrooms to the recipe and use less oil more broth. Pepper amount is fine. brothers pepperoni is also needed. I know greeks are very picky about their olive oil so maybe using a nice olive oil instead of dirty canola oil would add to it as well.

      Well..... I tried the sauce and it is good but never tried it on pizza yet but going to. I found the the receipe on here is way too much flour for the liquid i had to add way more chicken broth. I only had half the pepper in the house and it is almost too hot. I think by adding more celery and onions and mushrooms would be better. Still not sure what the secret to the sauce could be.
