Homemade Pizza Sauce from Scratch

Recipe by  

"I noticed that most (all?) the pizza sauce recipes call for either tomato paste or tomato sauce or both. I wanted to do it from scratch! So I experimented until I got it right. This is much better than the store-bought sauce with none of those nasty preservatives."

Directions

  1. Place tomatoes, water, and olive oil in a blender or food processor; blend until smooth. Transfer tomato mixture to a large pot.
  2. Stir sugar, garlic salt, and vinegar into tomato mixture and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until thickened, 1 to 2 hours, stirring occasionally.
  3. Pour tomato sauce into a clean blender or food processor no more than half full. Cover and hold lid down; pulse a few times before leaving on to blend. Puree in batches until tomato sauce is very smooth.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • This should yield enough for about 8 12-inch pizzas where you need about 6 tablespoons sauce per pizza. You can put what you don't use in plastic bags in the freezer. I put 6 tablespoons sauce into 8 separate bags. Just run hot water over the bag to thaw.

A nice way to use up an ubandance of romas this season. Used my food processor for the first step. Decided to cut back the sugar a tad and it was still a sweet sauce. After simmering I used my emersion blender for step three. Threw in some dried basil and oregano. I advise cutting back the sugar to taste. Enjoy!

I've tried this recipe in the past and my only complaint is that it is a little sweet. I'm going to try it again today and ex the sugar.

Sickeningly sweet.

I reduced the sugar some, and it still had a nice flavor. I also sprinkled some Italian seasoning to taste.
