"After trying several brands of store-bought sauce, I decided it was time to make my own. This sauce is great, and super easy to make, but you should refrigerate it overnight to allow the flavors to meld. I started with 1 tablespoon of brown sugar. We all liked the sauce, but I will try it next time with 2 tablespoons of brown sugar. Refrigerate overnight before using. Makes enough for 4 large pizzas."

I'm a pizza snob. Normally I go so far as to order my favorite brand of sauce from the Internet because the stores around here don't have it. I was fresh out of that sauce and decided to try m...

I cut this down to make enough sauce for 2 pizzas. I actually made this a few days ago and had it sitting in the fridge to meld the flavors. Paired this great sauce with the quick and easy piz...

What I thought was a large can of tomato sauce in the pantry actually turned out to be crushed tomatoes, which is probably what this sauce needed -- some texture. And because my fresh herbs are...

This sauce was awesome! I might try using fresh herbs next time just to see how it turns out. But, even with the dried herbs (and some of mine are kinda old) it was an awesome sauce! Definite...
