Pizza Sauce

Pizza Sauce

This was prepared as part of a meal cooked for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was "pizza". Like the Pizza Dough posted prior, this is a very basic sauce with a lot of room to improve on. Normally my go to "red sauce" is my Slow Cooker Marinara but this is a really good substitute if you do not have a few hours to make a sauce.



  1. 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
  2. 3 Cloves Garlic
  3. 1 28 oz Tomatoes Crushed Cans
  4. 1 6 oz Tomato Paste Cans
  5. 1/2 Tablespoon Brown Sugar
  6. 3/4 teaspoon Kosher Salt
  7. 1 teaspoon Basil Dried
  8. 1/2 teaspoon Oregano Dried
  9. 20 Pepper Cranks Fresh Cracked
  10. 1 teaspoon Red Pepper Crushed (optional)
