Easy Pizza Sauce

 

I have been making homemade pizzas at home (and at the big kitchen) for years now and have found that this Easy Pizza Sauce recipe is hands down the best one out there.  It is fast, simple and will keep in the refrigerator for a few days or can be frozen for a few months (along with your low moisture mozzarella…fyi).  You need to make this, try it and let me know if you like it.  I promise you won’t hurt my feelings if you don’t, but I bet you’ll love it!

Easy Pizza Sauce

1 (28oz) can tomato puree

2 tbsp olive oil

1 garlic clove, smashed or minced

1 tsp oregano, dried

1 tsp salt

1/8 tsp pepper

1/2 tsp garlic powder

Instructions:

In a medium size sauce pan, heat the olive oil on med heat.  Add the garlic, cook, 1-2 minutes.  Reduce heat to low, add the tomato puree and 1/2 of the tomato can of water.  Be sure to swirl the water around the can to grab any tomato left behind.  Add the oregano, salt, garlic powder and pepper. Stir well and turn heat back up to medium.  Bring to low boil and cook for 5 minutes, stirring often.  Taste for salt, adding as needed.

*Sometimes tomatoes can be acidic.  If the sauce tastes slightly acidic then add 1/2-1 tsp of sugar, this will remove the acidic taste.
