DIRECTIONS

  • In a large pot, heat oil over medium heat.
  • Add the Tomato Puree; watch out for splatterage!
  • Add everything else and simmer uncovered on low, stirring frequently, for 30-60 minutes, until desired consistency.
  • Tips:
  • Freeze leftover sauce until ready to use; When using on pizza dough, thaw to room temperature; Thaws nicely in the microwave.
  • Don't use too much pepper.
  • You can mince a baby carrot in the garlic press after microwaving it for 5-10 seconds- just cut it in half before putting it through the press- and that equals about 1/2 Tablespoon.
  • Either Light or Dark Brown Sugar is fine, but the dark brown sugar makes the sauce DEEP red- almost maroon.
  • If you want the sauce even sweeter, just add more Honey next time.
