It’s been a while since I’ve done food, hasn’t it? Fortunately, my time away from recipes has given me a chance to experience with new things. For instance….
Something that many people consider to be a household staple is pasta/pizza sauce.
I, on the other hand, find myself constantly without it when I need it.
I’ve experimented with different sauces in the past, but they were all terrible. Often bitter…sometimes basically flavorless. I was about to completely give up on homemade sauces in general.
But then we got snowed in. And I realized, again, that I was without pizza sauce when needed. With a few hours to spare, I decided to do some research. Long story short, I have found the recipe.
Easy Homemade Pizza Sauce
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 2 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp dried oregano
- 1 tsp dried basil
- 2 (14.5 oz) cans diced tomatoes (or 2 lbs fresh tomatoes)
- 1 tsp sugar
- 1/2 tsp salt
- black pepper, to taste
Step 01: In a medium saucepan, mix all of the ingredients. Cook on medium heat and bring to a boil. As soon as it starts to boil, reduce heat to low and let simmer for an hour and a half, stirring occasionally.
Step 02: Pour the contents of the saucepan into a food processor and pulse until you have a nice, smooth sauce.
I actually got the original recipe from Kitchen Treaty, but I made a few changes (and I hope to make a few more!)
This is fantastic, whether you’re using it as is or as a base for other sauces. I haven’t experimented much with different flavors, but I’ll let you know what sort of sauces I come up with.
