Pizza Sauce

From Cooking: A Common Sense Guide

Prep: 10 Min
Cooking: 25 Min
Makes sauce for two 12 in pizzas

1 Tb olive oil
1 onion, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 C peeled tomatoes, crushed
1 t of dried basil
1 t dried oregano
1 t sugar

1. Heat the oil in a pan and cook the onion over low heat for 5 min, or until soft. Add the garlic and cook 1 min.
2. Stir in the tomato, herbs, and sugar and cook over high heat for 20 min, or until reduced and thickened. Season to taste and cool before using.

NOTE: The sauce can be made up to 2 days in advance. Refrigerate in an airtight container until required. The sauce may also be frozen for up to 2 months. You my like to make a double batch and freeze the remaining sauce for future use.

Heather note: Use canned tomatoes with chilis for a kick (blends really well with a supreme pizza) or canned tomatoes with Italian seasonings for more flavor.
