"The basic pizza cheese is mozzarella. Feta is often used in combination with a spinach topping. Cheddar can be used for a more southwestern taste."
"Commercial pizzerias almost always use a blend of various cheeses, the most common of which are mozzarella, parmeasan, and romano."
"A simple sauce consists of tomato paste, basil, and oregano. Using tomato puree will give a runny sauce that must be spread thinly to prevent the cheese and toppings from sliding off. Diced, dried, or crushed tomatoes may be added for extra flavor and texture."
