"I live about 1 hour from my favorite pizza joint, so I decided to make my own sauce recipe for the days that I can't have the real thing (because let's face it, nothing beats the real thing). After many attempts (10 full batches, to be exact) at adjusting my recipe, this is what my taste buds came up with. I hope you will give it a try and enjoy it as much as my family and I do. For the ultimate pizza experience use Brothers® pepperoni and Mozzarellissima® pizza cheese."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

I make this sauce on a regular basis. Delish. A taste of home ;)
This sauce tastes awesome while cooking -- here's to hoping it tastes just as good, if not better, complemented by pizza toppings for a birthday supper I'm having with my lover on Wednesday.
I esp. appreciate how easy simple this recipe keeps it -- all ingredients are easily found, most of them in my fridge or spice rack.
Instead of celery salt, I used celery seed (since I buying herbs, salt and salted herbs is redundant).
I also used a can of mushrooms instead of fresh, since that was what I had.
The tomato sauce was from sauced I stewed down from rescued tomatoes at home.
In the quantities stated for pepper and sugar, the sauce is spicier than it is sweet. I don't like my savory foods to be sweet 9/10, and I would still cut the pepper down to 1/4 cup and maybe up the sugar to 2/3 cup.
The recipe is also bigger than it might originally seem if you don't note that the broth accounts for more of the volume than the tomatoe sauce -- different than typical pizza sauce. My guess is this made around 24 cups of sauce. Easily enough for a year of casual home pizza-ing.
