I've tried several pizza sauce recipes with no luck finding anything my family likes. But then I came across this recipe from New Orleans restaurant critic, Tom Fitzmorris. Although the recipe calls for canned Italian tomatoes, I prefer sliced fresh Italian plum tomatoes. Yum! Canned is fine though if that's all you have on hand.
- [Skip this step if you're using fresh tomatoes] Mix and semi-puree all ingredients in a food processor for about 20 seconds. 'It may seem a little too runny, but trust me--it works!'-Tom Fitzmorris.
- If you're using fresh tomatoes, just slice and place evenly on top of crust, brush them with the olive oil, and sprinkle the next 6 ingredients over the tomatoes.
- Now pile on your favorite toppings and bake. That's it!
