Recipe

This is a good light base sauce for pizza because it is just the right thickness, and its flavorings will not overwhelm other toppings.

Yield : 3 cups (enough for two 12-inch pizzas)

Ingredients

  • 1 can (28 ounces) Italian-style tomato puree
  • 1 large clove garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano or marjoram
  • 4 fresh basil leaves or 1 teaspoon dried
  • 1 bay leaf
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Directions

Place all the ingredients in a 3-quart saucepan. Cover and bring to a boil. Uncover, lower the heat, and simmer, stirring occasionally, 30 minutes.

Notes

This sauce may be made ahead and frozen.
