Tex's New York Style Pizza Sauce 🍕. Most often, New York-style pizza is hand-tossed, then covered in a light layer of tomato sauce and dry, grated, full-fat mozzarella cheese with additional toppings on top of the cheese. The city's signature massive round pizzas that are sold by the slice typically use this style of sauce, which is made with herbs, garlic and a little bit of sugar. This flavor-packed sauce pairs so well with the generous toppings on those extra-large slices.
