I had been wanting to try making pizzas for the longest time! I finally came across a good recipe for pizza dough. And the pizza sauce recipe is really simple! It turned out really good!!
Here it is!
1 28 ounce can of plum tomatoes
1 red onion finely diced
3 garlic cloves finely diced
3-4 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon oregano
6-8 chiffonade of basil leaves
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
salt and pepper to taste
In a medium pot, put in the olive oil at medium heat. After a minute add in the onions, garlic and saute it until translucent. Then add in the tomatoes, and the remaining ingredients ie salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, oregano, and basil. Using an electric blender, blend it in the pot itself.
Simmer at low to medium heat for half an hour. Make sure that the pot is covered else it will splatter everywhere.
The pizza sauce is ready after half an hour! :)
