Simple Pizza Sauce

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by ratherbeswimmin

Use on Neapolitan-style pizza. Neapolitans do not use what we Americans think of as “pizza sauce”. Their tomato topping is either ripe, fresh crushed tomatoes or canned San Marzano tomatoes.

Simple is always best! I found that 6 in 1 ground tomatoes are very good. No citric acid. If you like onions on your pizza; early in the day finely dice about 1/2 cup and sprinkle raw on top of sauce. Onions have a strong odor when first cut but if it sits for several hours it develops a nicer taste.
