Excellent pizza sauce. I really like the red wine in this. I used the red pepper flake option and thought that was a nice addition. I've made similar sauces to this and it is one of our favorites. thanks for sharing. Made for Australia/NZ Swap event. :)

Excellent sauce! Very rich and flavorful. I like that it isn't too salty, like some commercial sauces. I didn't use the pepper flakes, but will next time. Used for a sausage and mushroom pizza.
