Simple, but tasty. Added a little oregano as well. Used the sauce on "Deep-Dish Cast Iron Pizza" from allrecipes.

Can't believe I've never made pizza sauce from scratch before. SO easy! This recipe is delicious!! I subbed what I had on hand, diced tomatoes and tomato sauce, dried basil. (mashed up with potato masher after cooking awhile) Did add oregano and extra garlic. Can't wait to try this with San Marzano tomatoes!

I made as instructed above. Personally I love garlic and felt that 3 cloves didn't stand up to the 28 ounce can of crushed tomatoes, so I made it 5-6 cloves. Also, I recommend 3-6 pinches of sugar to balance it out the acids from the tomatoes. It makes a big difference.Don't overdo it though. Lastly- make sure the canned tomatoes are of high quality. Pastene brand Italian tomatoes are my favorite. In the North End in Boston the owner of my favorite restaurant said, "It's all about the tomatoes".

This has a wonderful flavor. I also liked the chunks of tomatoes on my pizza. I thought that the sauce was thin so I cooked it on a very low setting for the about a hour while my pizza crust was processing. I used it on the Cast-iron Pizza from this site. It was perfect.

I didn't have any basil and used garlic powder instead and it tastes delicious! I puréed carrots and bell peppers and a few extra fresh tomatoes and added them just to up the veggie intake. My 3 yr old and everyone else in the family raves about my pizza!
