This quick and easy sauce tastes like that which you would find at your neighborhood pizzeria! I found the original recipe on the Internet, but adapted it to my families taste.
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 3 cloves garlic, pressed
- 1 (6 ounce) can tomato paste
- 2⁄3 cup water
- 2 teaspoons sugar
- 1⁄2 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1⁄4 teaspoon dried basil
- 3 tablespoons parmesan cheese
- 2 tablespoons red wine
- In a medium saucepan, sauté garlic in oil until golden.
- Add tomato paste, water, sugar, oregano, basil, cheese and wine.
- Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
- Simmer for 10 minutes over medium low heat.
Oh my!!! It was all I could do from drinking this on the spot. I loved this sauce. It was the right consistency, flavor and easy to prepare. I used it on two pizzas and it was perfect for us. I will use this recipe from now on, it wonderful. Thank you so much for sharing this with us. Its great!!!
This is a superb pizza sauce! I made a batch to use as a dipping sauce for pepperoni rolls and it is simply the best. For extra flavor, I added a small chopped up shallot with the garlic. I also added about 1/4 cup of additional water to make it more dipping consistency. One tip is to mix the tomato paste with the water is a measuring cup along with the sugar and herbs - you avoid burning the tomato paste if you add it to hot oil or have splatters if you add water to hot oil. The cheese and wine add a lot to the flavor, so don't skip it. Thanks, Kim for posting this terrific recipe!
Excellent sauce, made it last night and it was fabulous. I am making it again tonight it was so good. Thanks!!!!!
