Difference in Pizza Sauce & Marinara?

What is the difference in your pizza sauces and marinara sauces?

For me personally, i don't add any dried basil, and i add extra oregano, extra red pepper, and crushed fennel seed.

How do you do it?

What is the traditional difference?

Both originated in Naples. Both are a type of pomodoro sauce. If memory serves me right, I believe the main difference is in the cooking time. Marinara is a quick tomato sauce, while tomato sauce for pizza (Sugo al Pomodoro Napolitana) generally was simmered a lot longer to make it thicker and more concentrated in flavor. Maybe one of our posters from Italy can shed more info on this.

yup, the pizza sauce is a thicker one from longer cooking. As far as your herbs etc, if it's what you like, do it. Looks good to me.

And the pizza sauce is typically smoother in texture, no chunks.
