    1. 1
      Place the tomatoes, including the juice from the cans, into a large stockpot.

      Remove from the heat and let cool. Stir in the garlic and basil.
    5. 5
      Add the red pepper flakes, if desired.

      Sorry, but this was too acidic for us. I LOVE the red pepper flakes, exactly the right ingredient for pizza sauce! My BF wouldn't eat this though, due to its "I'm a big baby and can't eat anything that tastes like it might exacerbate my ulcer" taste. Guess I gotta go with something sweeter or cut it with red peppers. sigh. I wanted to use this for Pizza Roll-Ups #50772 but I ended up adding it to my lasagne meat sauce. (He'll never know!)

      Very good, I used tomatoe puree as my family does not like chunky sauce. I also sauteed a little onion in some olive oil before adding the tomatoes. Followed the rest of the recipe but added just a little sugar at the end to cut the acidity. This was a very good thick sauce that has a lot of flavor from just a few ingrediants. Thank you for the recipe.
