Yes, pizza sauce is indeed a real product. Some may scream "Sellout!" while others may exclaim "Genius!" — the former perhaps a passionate home cook who insists on doing everything from scratch, no matter how long it takes, and the other a casual cook with more of a laissez-faire approach to the kitchen.
While it's probably an exaggeration to say that any home cook fits either one of these archetypes 100 percent of the time, it's safe to say that for most people, the answer is "It depends." What are you in the mood for?
I was in the mood for the cheater's way out the night I made this, I confess. And having never evaluated this particular product before, I was curious to see just how it would taste. To be honest, it really wasn't that bad. Perhaps a bit salty, but nothing heinous. And if you don't want to use ready-made pizza sauce, go ahead and use your favorite homemade recipe.
