Melted Onion and Tomato Pizza Sauce

Melted tomato and onion pizza sauce 1

 

1 large onion chopped

An equal volume of Roma tomatoes diced, I used 7

About ¼ to 1/3 cup olive oil

1 Tbs. oregano

1 teaspoon Italian blend seasoning, I used Penzey’s, a mix of Turkish oregano, basil, marjoram, thyme and cracked rosemary

1 Tbs. sugar

1 teaspoon dried garlic flakes

Salt and pepper to taste

 

Add onions, tomatoes and olive oil to a sauce pan. Bring the mix to a simmer on med. heat then turn to low and cover with parchment paper pressed down into the pan covering the mix. You just want it to barely simmer for three hours. I don’t think you need to stir but I did twice. Add the seasonings and sugar; turn up the heat some and simmer another 45 minutes to an hour to cook down some. Taste for salt and add if needed. Puree the mixture in a blender or use an immersion blender. This is my first batch and tasted pretty good. I think I will try it as is and then decide if it needs some tomato paste added or not.

 

Note: This made about a pint.
