Great Homemade Pizza Sauce

I’ve been meaning to share the sauce recipe below for homemade pizza. You can make it ahead of time or make it and use it right away. I’ve also included a link to the Blind Dog Pizza website. Its creator is a genius. He’s a baker for the bread bakery at the local co-op and he makes pizza easy and tasty.

His website features all of his crust and sauce recipes and they’re all free. I highly recommend bookmarking his site. Just remember most of his dough needs to be made a day in advance.

Pizza Sauce

1 14 oz can tomato sauce

1 28 oz can crushed tomatoes

1 Tablespoon salt

1 Tablespoon sugar

1 Tablespoon oregano

1 teaspoon black pepper

Start with the tomato sauce. Add the salt, sugar, oregano and pepper and simmer the sauce on a low heat, stirring occasionally. Let the sauce simmer for about an hour. Then, combine the sauce with the canned tomatoes. If you would like a smoother texture to the sauce, puree the tomatoes beforehand. The advantage of this method is that you get the enhanced flavor from a long simmer while at the same time preserving the freshness of the tomatoes.
