While I was looking for the perfect sauce, I tried one that was way too spicy for me and one that was a little bit too sweet for me. I took a few ingredients from each recipe and came up with this one. And it was perfect for me. The best part is that Peter really liked it, too!
If you haven't found your own favorite pizza sauce, give this one a try.
Anne's Favorite Pizza Sauce
28 oz can tomato puree
3 T olive oil
1 T sugar
1 t dried basil
1/2 t dried oregano
1/2 t dried marjoram
1/2 t crushed red pepper flakes
1/2 t salt
4 cloves garlic, minced
Put all the ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a boil. (You might want to cover it because mine start splattering all over the place!) Reduce to a simmer. Simmer probably at least 15 minutes or so.
Makes enough for 3 or 4 14-inch pizzas. So you can just freeze whatever you don't use and use it next week. Your pizza will be that much quicker to make.
