the best pizza sauce/plannerperfectmeals.com

posted Jan 1, 2011, 7:30 PM by Jenny Penton


6 ounces tomato paste

1 tbsp. olive oil

1 can tomato sauce (29 ounces)

1/2 cup finely chopped sweet onion

4 cloves garlic, minced

2 tsp. oregano

1 tsp. rosemary

1-3 tsp. dried red pepper flakes--to taste

2 cups water

salt to taste


In a large saucepan over medium heat, stir the tomato paste and olive oil together, then stir in the tomato sauce.

Add all of the remaining ingredients, bring to a boil, then lower heat to a simmer. Cook, uncovered for 3 hours, stirring frequently. Add water if sauce gets too thick, but it should reduce down to a thick paste that has enough body to cover a pizza. 

Makes  3 cups, enough for 2-3 pizzas
