Homemade Pizza Sauce

Home made pizza sauce really adds that extra touch to home made pizza dough. So if you are
going to the trouble of making pizza at home, why not make the sauce too?

Can be used on any Italian dish you want. I have used it for Chicken parm and Spaghetti. I add chopped onions to the sauce when reusing it for spaghetti.You can also embellish this basic recipe by adding your personal touch. Perhaps some
chopped onion, diced pepper, grated carrot , or a few fresh chopped or canned mushrooms.
Pizza sauce is an excellent way  of hiding vegetables from finicky eaters.  ENJOY


3 garlic cloves, minced ( or jar garlic)
3 tablespoons olive  oil
1 (29 ounce) can tomato puree
1 (28 ounce) can diced or crushed tomatoes (if u like smooth use crushed and if i like chunky use diced)
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
1 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon salt ( optional )
2 tablespoons sugar
DirectionsIn a large saucepan, saute garlic in oil until tender. Stir in the remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 30 minutes or until sauce reaches desired thickness, Stirring occasionally.  . Sauce may be refrigerated for up to 1 week and it freezes well.

Note: you can add or not add any spice you perfer
