Recipe by HeatherFeather

Found this recipe tucked in one of my Mom's cookbooks. Jane was a neighbor when I was growing up. She was an amazing cook. Mom would buy pizza dough from the local pizzeria to make pizza at home. This makes enough sauce for about 5-6 large pizzas. It will be very thick and slightly chunky. Freeze in small batches for up to 3 months.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown onion and garlic in oil until soft and golden.
  2. Add remaining ingredients and heat to boiling over medium heat.
  3. Reduce and simmer uncovered for approximately two hours, stirring occasionally, until sauce has thickened (and mushing up the tomatoes a bit with your spoon when you stir).
  4. Discard bay leaf.
  5. Makes enough sauce for 5-6 pizzas.
  6. To use for pizza:either follow directions on your favorite pizza recipe or spread desired amount of sauce on pizza dough, top with cheese and any other toppings as desired, then bake in a preheated 425 F oven for about 15-20 minutes.
