I’ve been often asked by friends n family to share a good recipe for homemade pizza sauce.
This particular one is my fav. Inspite of using a few simple ingredients, its bold and robust in flavor and is sure to please!
You will need the following ingredients….
Ripe red tomatoes 2 pounds
Garlic 1 whole bulb
Sun dried tomatoes 1/2 cup
Fresh basil, a handful
Organo (dried) 1 tsp
Salt, pepper and sugar to taste
Olive oil 2 tbsp
Drizzle some olive oil at the base of a baking pan
Slice tomatoes into half and place them in the pan
Place sliced garlic on top of the tomatoes.
Sprinkle salt n pepper and a generous drizzle of olive oil
Place in a 350F oven for 30 min.
Baking it, reduces juices and concentrates flavors
Cool and process in a chopper. Do not blend it too much…leave it slightly chunky.
Pour out into a pan and put over low heat.
Add the sun dried tomatoes
And the basil, chopped roughly along with 1 tsp dried oregano and 2-3 tsp sugar as required.
Cook for 15-20 minutes. Taste and adjust seasoning…and it’s ready to be used!
