Cento San Marzano Marinara Sauce

Our Cento San Marzano Marinara Sauce, arguably our most popular recipe, was specifically crafted to highlight the sweeter, less acidic taste of our Cento Certified San Marzano Tomatoes. San Marzano tomatoes are often regarded as the gold standard for taste in tomatoes by top chefs, Italian cooks and foodies alike. With the addition of few aromatics and flavors, our San Marzano Marinara Sauce lets the fresh flavors of the tomatoes shine to their full potential as the star of the dish. Chef Cento formulated this sauce as a simple marinara for any level of cook to enjoy with their favorite cut of Anna Pasta.

Pizza Dough Ball

Our Pizza Dough Ball Recipe was created using Anna TIPO ‘00’ Flour and can be used for not only pizza, but focaccia, stromboli, focaccia, garlic knots, flatbreads, turnovers and much more. After researching the topic, Chef Cento learned that the inexperienced chef can often be intimidated by homemade pizza and he wanted to create a simple recipe so that anyone, regardless of skill level, could craft their own pizza at home. Anna TIPO ‘00’ Flour is tailored to high-temperature pizza ovens to deliver an authentic Italian Naples-style pizza; it’s also smooth and easy to work with to yield consistent results. With less impurities for more even cooking, the light, crispy crust is delicious with your favorite toppings added. Through testing repetitively, Chef Cento found the perfect ratio of flour to water, salt and sugar to create the perfect pizza dough every time.
