This pizza sauce is amazing. The long simmering creates a vivid, Old World flavor. Here is a PPM tip: prepare up to a week in advance, bottle it and refrigerate until ready to make your pizza. Nothing compares to homemade pizza sauce...
6 ounces tomato paste
1 tbsp. olive oil
1 can tomato puree (29 ounces)
3 tsp. granulated garlic
2 tsp. oregano
1 tsp. basil
1-3 tsp. dried red pepper flakes--to taste
1 cups water
salt to taste
In a large saucepan over medium heat, stir the tomato paste and olive oil together, then stir in the tomato sauce.
Add all of the remaining ingredients, bring to a boil, then lower heat to a simmer. Cook, uncovered for 1-3 hours, stirring frequently. Add water if sauce gets too thick, but it should reduce down to a thick paste that has enough body to cover a pizza.
Makes 3 cups, enough for 2-3 pizzas
