Pizza Sauce

Here’s a simple recipe for pizza sauce that tastes incredible.

2 tsp olive oil
2 cloves garlic, crushed
2 cups crushed tomatoes
2 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp onion powder
2 tsp balsamic vinegar
2 tsp brown sugar
1 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp dried rosemary
1/4 tsp ground pepper
1/4 tsp salt

Heat oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add garlic and saute for 2 minutes. Add remaining ingredients and simmer covered for 15 minutes.

This is my favourite pizza sauce recipe. It’s really easy to make and I love the taste. This recipe makes more sauce than I usually need, but luckily it freezes beautifully. I always have some on hand in my freezer, ready to go when I want to make pizza. It works well as a pasta sauce too. I often use it as a base for spaghetti sauce and add things to it, like ground beef, green peppers, onions, mushrooms, parmesan cheese, and even ground flax seed for added nutrition. It’s so versatile!
