A recipe from Cook's Illustrated taken on the blog of What Megan's Making. ETA : I made it on July 23, 2011. I used it in Philly Cheesy Pizza Dip It was great. The taste is great but maybe it would be better with more seasoning like dried basil and thyme. But it's so easy to do.

Nice pizza sauce. It was simple to make and worked well on English muffin pizzas. I added some Italian seasoning to perk it up a little bit. Thanks for sharing, Boomette. Made for Everyday is a Holiday Tag.

Very easy to make and has a great flavor. I used very ripe roma tomatoes that I put in the blender with everything else (uncooked) and then pour the finished sauce in a saucepan and simmered for 15 minutes to cook the tomatoes. Came out perfect; used for Philly Cheesy Pizza Dip. Made for Recipe Swap#57.

This was so easy, and made a great product. It has a nice, mild tomato flavor, and isn't thick or gooey like the commercially available pizza sauce. I agree that more seasoning would be a good thing, but actually, I prefer to add that to the pizza itself, so that I can adjust based on the type of pizza I'm making. The one change I made was to add 1 tablespoon of tomato paste, to make the flavor a bit richer. I'll be making this again- thanks for posting!
