As promised in an earlier post, I'm talking about one of the items I bought at the Indy Winter Farmers Market. It's pizza sauce from Local Folks Foods. This company is really cool, because their whole "thing" centers around reducing the distance food travels before being consumed, and using nothing artificial. Super local. I was excited to taste my local pizza sauce:)
I made (drumroll) a pizza. We do a vegetarian dinner once a week, and I made sort of a Mediterranean version, using Trader Joe's garlic and herb pizza dough, Local Folks pizza sauce, a blend of shredded mozzarella and crumbled feta, kalamata olives, Roma tomatoes, arugula and an egg. Bam.
(As a side note, I'm sort of liking the egg on the pizza thing. Just crack an egg right over the top of your pizza before you bake it, and it cooks with the pizza.)
The sauce was great. Some sauces are way too sweet or way too thin or don't have any flavor. This was really, really good. Thick (but not chunky), not too sweet, and a great blend of herbs to make it taste just right. I made breadsticks with some of the leftover dough and it also made for a great dipping sauce.
Check 'em out when you visit the farmers market next time. You can find a listing of their products on the website and retail locations, too. (other than farmers markets, I saw Good Earth on the list, Goose the Market, and Green BEAN delivery)
