HOME MADE PIZZA SAUCE
MAKES 3 CUPS • PREP TIME: 25 MIN
1/2 Tbsp sugar
3/4 tsp salt
1 tsp basil
1/2 tsp dried oregano
Pinch of crushed peppers
2 -Tbsp Olive Oil
1 clove garlic, minced
28 oz of your favorite AMCO SELECTONE Tomato
6oz. can tomato sauce
Add the olive oil and garlic to a sauce pot and cook over medium heat for 1-2 minutes, or just until the garlic is soft and fragrant.
Add the crushed tomatoes, tomato paste, sugar, salt, basil, oregano, some freshly cracked pepper (10-15 cranks of a pepper mill), and a pinch of red pepper flakes. Stir to combine.
Cover the pot, allow the pot to come to a simmer, then reduce the heat to low, and let simmer for 15 minutes minimum, or up to 30 minutes (I often let it simmer as I prepare my pizza dough).
