Recipe by Frank Sweterlitsch
"A simple pizza sauce used by many pizzerias. The thickness of the sauce is regulated by the amount of water used; it should be somewhat viscous."

This is a very good sauce. I have tried quite a few and this is my husband’s favorite. I cut the water amount in half because of others recommendations, I highly recommend this or the sauce will be very thin and watery. I also add a ½ teaspoon of sugar. We make this now once a week!
Easy, yes but way too watery if you follow the recipe. I adjusted the water down to 2/3 cup and replaced the oil with 2 Tbsp. of wine. I added a little salt and 1 tsp. of sugar along with a 1/4 tsp. of onion powder and cut back on the oregano, basil and rosemary to taste using a little over 1/4 tsp. each. Overall, not bad but don't use all that water unless you want a very, very thin sauce.
Thanks Frank for the recipe......to make it a quick sauce, cut the water down to a cup and the oil down to 1/4 cup......simmer for 15 minutes and add flour to bind the oil, water and tomato and spices......voila! a fast pizza sauce that's ready while your dough is rising!
Excellent! I always use this recipe when I make my famous homemade pizza. I make the sauce and dough in the morning and let them both sit on the counter until dinner. Thus, the sauce has a marvelous flavor and the dough has had time to ferment. When making the sauce, I add less water and oil than the recipe calls for. This sauce has an incredible flavor! Thanks for a tremendous recipe. My family and friends rave about the pizza!
My whole family liked this sauce a lot. The only thing I did different was I put all the ingredients together and simmered it for about an hour and than I just let it sit for another hour before I made the pizza. It came out great. Thanks.
Great Sauce! I used double the garlic for my garlic loving family. I did not have rosemary, so I used Italian Spices instead. I also only put 1 cup fo water.
This is the best pizza sauce! I only used 1 cup of water and it was great. I froze the rest. Also, I didn't have time to let it sit before using and it still tasted yummy! Try Jay's Signature Pizza crust on this website.
Well. THIS IS WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO: Its a great recipe. I tasted it and said yuck..Then it sat in my frige for 4 days. And WOW!! The paste eventually thickens All. Anyhow, with the time it had all was Delicious. A big factor I think..I used it with Ravioli and was Delish..
