Did You Know About Our Marinara?

At Diana's, we start our award winning marinara with premium, grade 'A' canned tomatoes. The best and most expensive in the industry, and I say that with pride! They are bright red in the can, naturally sweet and don't need any dyes, nor any added sugar.  Then we add our own blend of top quality herbs and spices and let it marinate before we use it on your pizzas.

Places that make pizzas to compete with the lowest price use grade 'C' or 'D' quality tomatoes which are orangey/brown in the can.  The acid level in these low quality tomatoes is so high, that it leaches tin flavour from the can into the tomatoes.  The more expensive of these low quality canned tomatoes have a vinyl liner inside the can to prevent the metal 'flavour' transfer.  MMMMmmm, yummeh.  People with hyper-sensitive palates like me can taste that.  I can't eat anything with low quality tomatoes, rather, I can't eat it without needing to chase it down with some kind of thick pink digestive aid. 

To mask the bitterness of the low quality tomatoes pizza chain places add copious amounts of sugar.  Sometimes it's actual sugar, mostly it's the equally inexpensive fructose syrup.  A lot of it.  The other ingredient they use in copious amounts is red dye.  Red dyes have been linked to increased aggression in children.  Google it.

If you're a parent and have ever noticed a behavioural change in your child 5-65 minutes after ingesting a $5 pizza, it could be the sauce.  If you've ever woken up in the middle of the night with intense heartburn after having a $5 pizza that day it could be the sauce.  Or it could be that a $5 pizza is made with more non-food ingredients than real-food ingredients and your body is telling you it doesn't like it. 

Consider that your body takes an average of 30-48 hours to digest a meal, when you have a pizza from Diana's, you feel great, when you have pizza made with non-food ingredients, you need digestive aids to help you cope.
