    • Thomas Benton says:

      @Cooking My Way I love pizza and I think a perfect Pizza is on the lighter side regarding sauce. To each his own I guess

    • Cooking My Way says:

      @Thomas Benton for sure, my friend. It is EVERYTIME what you like the most the thing that matters. Did you ever try a heavy sauce, I mean, thick, not watery on top? It is very satisfying, I swear! Let me know if you will! Xoxo
