Pizza Sauce Recipe

 I love the taste of fresh tomatoes but when I can't get them and need pizza sauce, I have some great canned ones I love. Even though we use fresh plum tomatoes often for making homemade sauce, they are a great taste alternative. Great that you stopped by, kind regards, Curt!

1- 28 ounce can of San Marzano whole peeled tomatoes or use 2 pounds of fresh plum tomatoes put through the food processor
3 fresh leaves of  basil
2 teaspoons oregano
1 tablespoon dried parsley flakes
3 tablespoon sugar
2 cloves minced garlic
1/4 cup olive oil
salt to taste
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
pinch of cayenne pepper

Place the tomatoes in a food processor with all the herbs.
In a medium size sauce pan add the olive oil and mince garlic and saute for 1 minutes. Add the tomatoes herbs and cook for around 1/2 hour. 

This is now ready to be used on your pizza dough to make your favorite
Italian pizza!  We loved the taste of this sauce for pizza. A very fresh tasting sauce.
