    CafeAronzo's Note:

    To top off whole wheat pizza dough, or rotini/fusilli pasta noodles. (Note for dieters: If you're adding 1/2 cup of shredded cheese, it's only going to add about 100-120 calories to the entire sauce, and 10g. of fat. That's actually pretty low once divided amongst the pizza.)

    My Private Note


    Serves: 8


    10inch ...

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1/2 cup tomato sauce (Hunt's Original is best in this situation)
    • 1/2 teaspoon brown sugar
    • 1 teaspoon salt substitute (My mother always has "NoSalt" around the kitchen)
    • 1/4-1/2 teaspoon pepper (more pepper for a spicier paste)
    • 1/2 teaspoon oregano (too much and the sauce tastes minty)
    • 1/2-1 teaspoon basil (french basil is best)
    • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder (optional)
    • 1/2 teaspoon parsley, ground (optional)
    • 1 ounce cheddar cheese, shredded (about 1/4 cup) (optional)


    1. 1
      Place Tomato Sauce in saucepan, stir on medium heat.
    2. 2
      Add brown sugar, salt, pepper, oregano, and optional garlic powder. Stir for another 3-5 minutes, then remove from stove top. (For cheese users: You may add the shredded cheese in while sauce is simmering on stove for a hidden cheesy taste, recommended when using sauce for pasta. If you would rather have a cheese layer on your pizza, wait until spreading the sauce, and then sprinkle over top.).
    3. 3
      Spread it on your pizza dough, mix it in your pasta, or save it in the refridgerator for later. Enjoy!
