  • Stir all well. I use a whisk. Let sit for "a couple-two-tree" hours. What could be easier? You can use this for pasta sauce too with some meatballs and sausage. I put the raw meat in and gently simmer it for an hour or so. It gives the sauce a hearty flavor. You gotta try this one!

    This is just a suggestion. Add all the dry ingredients in a bowl and then crush them together with a spoon. This releases their oils and the smell is incredible.

    For me, pizza sauce should straddle the fence between sweet and spicy. As one of the base/core/foundational ingredients of a finished dish, I tend to believe that it should be able to conpliment +/or contrast any ingredient. Sweet enough not to overpower "lighter" toppings, but with enough spice tones to remind you it is a pizza. Conversely, it should be spicy enough to be a good vehicle for those "neutral" & "more vibrantly flavored" toppings without getting lost on the way to the pallette. With that said, I LOVED this sauce. . . with only one exception. When I removed the Marjoram & replaced it with Whole Fennel Seed (lightly toasted in a dry pan & then gently cracked open before incorporating) it just EXPLODED(!). I also changed up the type of tomatos used. I like my sauce just a tad chunky, but not as thick & chunky as a Pomodoro Tomato sauce (that is built on fillets, not crushed tomato) for on top of a pan or stuffed pizza. I used a mix of fine crushed tomatos and stewed 1/2 tomatos, still totaling 32 oz., then used my immersion blender to; 1) blend it all and 2) get the correct consistently.
