Marcia’s Delicious Pizza Sauce

January 31, 2009 § 1 Comment


My next door neighbor gave me a spoonful of this sauce last week and it was so terrific, I promptly asked her for the recipe.  She kindly obliged and I made this sauce myself the very next day.  Thank you, Marcia!

2 cans Italian stewed tomatoes (include liquid from can)
1 6-oz can tomato paste
1/2 teaspoon chile powder
1 onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic
1 tablespoon honey*
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon fresh parsley (if available, otherwise use dry)
1-2 tablespoons fresh basil, chopped

*If following a strict vegan diet, substitute with maple syrup.


1.  Sautee garlic and onion on medium-heat until translucent (approx. 7 minutes).  Add all other ingredients, except the spices.  Cook until boiling.

2. Add spices.  Decrease heat so sauce cooks at a steady simmer.  Simmer approx. 20-30 minutes so the sauce thickens up.

3.  Take off stove; cool until luke warm.

4.  Dump sauce in Cuisinart or blender and blend until smooth.


P.S. If you’re on the hunt for a tasty pizza dough recipe, here’s one you can whip up in five minutes flat!

Diet Notes: Gluten-free, vegan (see asterisk), nut-free
