Yesterday I found a recipe for the best homemade pizza sauce I ever tried. It was super easy to make and tasted like something I’d get in a restaurant. (better yet….it was approved by hubby and the youngins!) Of course, I tweaked it and this is what I came up with.
EASIEST PIZZA SAUCE
3 cloves garlic – minced
3 TB. extra virgin olive oil
1 can (28oz.) can of crushed tomatoes (the kind with basil, oregano already added)
2 can (14oz.) diced tomatoes (also the kind with basil, oregano etc. already added)
2 TB. brown sugar
1 TB. Italian seasoning
1 TB. Kosher salt
1/2 tsp. Red pepper flakes
1/4C. cooking wine
dash of celery salt
1/4 tsp. cumin
Crush the two cans of *diced* tomatoes with a food mill (or puree in food processor). Add all ingredients into a medium-large pot. Cook over low/medium heat for approx 20 minutes. — That’s it!
Use as your pizza sauce or spaghetti/lasagna sauce. Makes enough for 4- 12″ pizzas. If only making two pizzas…. freeze what you don’t use right away.
I’m probably going to make this recipe for freezing with my tomato harvest later in the summer. Probably just add some extra basil, oregano, parsley, onions and thyme…. plus salt and pepper to make up for the already seasoned canned tomatoes used in the original recipe.
