Pizza Sauce

July 19, 2013 § Leave a comment

It’s Friday. Therefore you should make a pizza. Logical? Totally. And to put on top of your pizza? This sauce.

It’s literally the easiest sauce to make in the world. No lie. Canned tomatoes, tomato paste, herbs (dried or fresh), salt and pepper and some balsamic. (Not pictured? A pinch of sugar). And you can work with whatever tomatoes you’ve got on had. The original recipe calls for crushed, but if you have diced or whole, no big deal; just drain about half the liquid then blend the sauce.

Now, toppings to go on top of the sauce is a whole other ball game. My husband is a meat man; pepperoni, sausage, the more the better. Me? I’m all about the veggies and fancy cheese, goat cheese and corn is my latest favorite. A little arugula is also right up my alley. Our only compromise is Hawaiian pizza. Canadian bacon and pineapple is our happy place for sharing. But we both agree on this sauce.

Ingredients:
  • 1 large can of crushed tomatoes
  • 1 can of tomato paste
  • 2 tbsp italian seasoning (or fresh herbs if you have them)
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbsp garlic
  • 1-2 tsp sugar
  • S&P to taste
To Make
1) In a medium sauce pan add crushed tomatoes, tomato paste (to make sauce as thick as you like, start with a little and add more as you need), seasoning, vinegar, sugar and garlic.
2) Simmer over medium high heat until sauce bubbles slightly. Add S&P to taste and extra tomato paste to thicken. Simmer about 20 minutes until your pizza is ready to make. Can be kept refrigerated for 1 week or frozen. Enjoy!
