Homemade Pizza Sauce
The sauce has a kick, so if you’re a heat pansy you can turn it down a notch by reducing the pepper.
- 1 can crushed tomatoes (28 oz)
- 1 small can tomato paste
- 1 tbsp garlic minced
- 2 tsp parmesan grated
- 1 tsp salt
- 2 tsp sugar
- 1/2 tsp basil dried
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
- 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
- 1/2 tsp rosemary
- 1 tsp oregano
- 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
- 1 tbsp olive oil extra virgin
- 1/2 cup water
In a medium-size pot over medium heat, heat the olive oil and saute the minced garlic until golden brown.
To the pot, add the tomato sauce, tomato paste, and water to the pot with the minced garlic.
Add the remaining ingredients and bring to a simmer, stirring occasionally.
Once simmering, place the lid on the pot and turn the heat to a low setting. Allow the sauce to simmer for a minimum of 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
After 30 minutes, remove the pot from the heat and allow to cool slightly before use.
If you are saving the sauce for later use, allow the sauce to cool completely before storing.
