Pizza Sauce Recipes
Simple Pizza Sauce
Makes about 3 cups
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons garlic cloves, minced
Salt and pepper
1 (28 ounce) can crushed tomatoes in sauce
Heat the oil in a wide skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and sauté for 30 seconds. Add the tomatoes, salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, until the juices are evaporated. The sauce should be thick enough to spread with no watery liquid. Taste and correct the seasonings. Let the sauce cool before spreading it on the pizza dough.
Fresh Tomato Sauce - Uncooked
Makes about 2-1/2 cups
Only make this sauce when tomatoes are at their peak in your area.
2 large or 6 plum tomatoes
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
Salt and pepper
Bring a saucepan of water to boiling. Cut an X through the tomato skin at the top and bottom of each tomato. Place the tomatoes in the boiling water for 30 seconds. Transfer them to a bowl of ice water.
Remove the skins and cut the tomatoes in half. Squeeze the tomatoes to extract the juice and seeds. Coarsely chop the tomatoes. Combine the tomatoes with the remaining ingredients. Let sit at room temperature for about 30 minutes. Spread on the pizza dough.
A good pizza sauce is an essential ingredient when creating a delicious homemade pizza. These two pizza sauce recipes are both simple to make and full of tomato flavor. For the first recipe you can use canned tomatoes but the second recipe requires that the tomatoes are fully ripe and at their peak of freshness.
