Pizza/Tomato Sauce

READY IN: 2hrs 25mins
Recipe by jkworth

I got this from the "Good Eats" show. It's easy to make and I find it goes perfect on my pesto pizza. Make sure the wine you use is one that you would drink and not some cheap cooking stuff. It makes all the difference.

Perfect pizza or breadstick dipping sauce. Goes great with this recipe #43740. The wine really rounds out the flavor nicely.
