San Marzano Tomatoes

The Best Tomato For Your Pizza!
Grown in the volcanic soil of Campania’s Agro Nocerino Sarnese, they carry the D.O.P. mark, your guarantee of authenticity and quality.

These tomatoes are perfect for any Italian dish, especially pizzas and pastas. San Marzano are famous for their sweetness, fleshy texture, fewer seeds and almost no liquid. Their rich flavor and fewer seeds mean you’re getting more value from this product than from a “normal” tin of tomatoes. Unlike many other canned tomatoes, these are full sun-ripened and they come in a rich passata, not some watery liquid that will ruin your pizza. It is true, this is the perfect tomato, and you will notice the difference!

Here’s how to use them: empty the can into a bowl for easy handling. Use your hands or a fork to crush the tomatoes into a smooth paste, removing any hard bits. You can use a veggie strainer or even an immersion blender to crush the tomatoes, but do it gently on a low speed and shortly. Add some salt to taste and a generous drizzle of extra virgin olive oil, stir well, and the finest pizza sauce is ready to use! Any leftovers can be stored in the fridge for a couple of days.

How do San Marzano tomatoes taste compared to regular tomatoes?

First difference you’ll notice is the color: it is intensely red. The texture of a San Marzano tomato is more fleshy, less watery and with less seeds. The flavor is stronger, more intense, less acidic and definitely sweeter. Now, we are not saying these tomatoes are better in every situation, some recipes call for a tomato with a more pronounced acidity.

Why are San Marzano tomatoes more expensive?

Apart from their texture and flavor, what makes the San Marzano tomatoes more expensive is their scarcity. They are grown in a very specific region, and their production numbers are limited. Are they worth the price? Compared to the stuff you’ll find in your supermarket- absolutely!

If you are paying the price, make sure you have the real deal: a DOP (Denominazione di Origine Protetta) label, and a label from the “Pomodoro S. Marzano Dell’Agro Sarnese-Nocerino” associacion must be present on the packaging.
