My family loves pizza, any type of pizza: chicken pizza, pepperoni pizza, cheeseburger pizza, just about anything… with the exception of pineapple, we really don’t want that on our pizza or anything else. We make our own 90% of the time. We always cheese on hand, and flour for making the dough but as usual I tend forget to buy the condiment: pizza sauce.
So I make my own.
Homemade Pizza Sauce

- 1 can of tomato sauce
- 2 tbsp of EVOO
- 1/2 an onion, diced small or in a food processor
- 3 cloves of garlic
- 2 tsp basil
- 1 tsp oregano
- salt an pepper to taste
- pinch of sugar (optional)
Making it is very simple.
Start with EVOO in the bottom of a small sauce pan, add in the garlic and onion and cook until tender. Add in the rest of the ingredients, bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer. Let it simmer for 15 minutes and add to your pizza dough.
