My Favorite Pizza Sauce

You're probably saying, "What brand is that? I've never even heard of it!". Well, that's because it's from PA. It's the brand my grandmother and mother always used. Once we moved to CA, it became a very fond but distant memory. Everytime we'd go visit my grandma, there would be jars and jars of this sauce in her cupboards. Although, now that I think about it, it was in a can. She'd whip up a pizza in a jiffy, much to everyone's delight.

So, you're asking, "How on earth did you find your grandmother's pizza sauce in CA?" Well, thanks for asking!

I was browsing through my local Big Lots in the canned goods aisle and low and behold, there on the shelf were 2 jars of this sauce. I was shocked. I picked them up to see that they were marked $1. Yes, $1. Did they not know what treasure they had? I got down so I could be eye-level with the shelf to see if there were more jars hiding behind other canned goods. Much to my dismay, there were none.

I grabbed the 2 on the shelf and left the store with giddy delight!

Delgrosso was the sauce my grandmother used, my mother used and if I could get my hands on it here in CA, I'd use it too.

It's made in Tipton, PA. Very close to my birthplace. I spent many a summer at Bland's Park (which they owned), where I spent my grandmother's money for rides on the Tilt-A-Whirl.

Seeing that jar of pizza sauce took me back to a simple time that I miss dearly!

Thank you DelGrosso for selling your pizza sauce at Big Lots in CA. I hope to see more of your family of products there (and at any other store locally for that matter!)
