I'm sick and tired of paying $5/can for these things on Amazon, but I refuse to cook with anything else.

A few smaller online stores have them a little cheaper, but charge a fortune for shipping.

They're a little cheaper at my local Italian deli, but irreplacable

theyre supposedly the best for pizza or tomato sauce in general.

if you have any means of growing your own tomatoes, do it and can your own. if you can't grow them yourself, pick up a bushel at a farmers market and can them. a bushel will run about $20, give or take a couple and you'll get a little more than 20 quarts from a bushel. all it will cost you in time is an afternoon.

we use a ton of tomatoes in our cooking (wife is arab) and there is nothing better than going to the pantry and choosing a particular heirloom type of tomato to go with a dish.
