Pizza Sauce

3 posts in this topic

Since reading the recent pizza dough post, I have been hooked on making homemade pizza. What are your favorite sauce recipes?

Here is mine:

2 Tablespoons olive oil

1 Tablespoon butter

1/2 cup onion, chopped

1/4 cup celery, chopped

1 garlic clove, minced

1 (8 oz can) tomato sauce

1 (6 oz can) tomato paste

2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese

1 teaspoon dried basil

1 teaspoon dried oregano

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon sugar

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

In large skillet, melt butter with oil. Add onion, celery, garlic and saute until soft.

Add tomato sauce and tomato paste. Stir.

Add remaining ingredients and simmer 30-60 minutes.

Enough for about 2 pizzas. I often double or triple the recipe and then freeze the leftovers.

This is my favorite.

6 oz can tomato paste

3/4 C water.....I use tomato juice or V8.But water will work

1/3 C olive oil

3 cloves garlic

S&P

1/2 Tbs Oregano

1/2 Tbs Basil

1/2 Tbs Rosemary

Heat on the stove and then let it stand for a couple hours to blend.

I make about a dozen pints of this with Roma garden tomatoes every year and can it.16 ounces will make 2 medium pizzas.

Yup, those all sound like tasty recipes. In general, I do pretty much the same thing...start with a can of diced tomatoes and a can of tomato paste. When making pizza sauce versus a lasagna or pasta sauce, the key for me is to use more paste than diced tomatoes. I also let it simmer for a good hour or so to reduce it down to a thicker pizza sauce.

As for the garlic, onions, and spices, I like to do a little of everything that I see. It's always a little different each time.

    • The Schrillary reich didnt compromise Bernie? And when hasnt the biased media compromised an election in recent memory? Nick is a hack and consistently posts 2nd grade propaganda, hes sold out to the party. They've been exposed and are resorting to extremes.  They went all in with obama and got called, he had far more to do with the outcome of the elections than anything  leaked by anyone.  Now its the fake blame game, humorous to say the least.   Snowflake butthurt apparently leads to desperation.
    • Really??? Catfish is my favorite fish.
    • I suspect you haven't visited this year or seen the reports.     And, for the record, I didn't say I was catching "tons" on Mille Lacs, but it was the best lake I've visited in the last two years.  And it wasn't even close.    
    • I think Schells is Minnesota's oldest brewer, so they must be doing something right.   I know some guys from New Ulm, and they all drink Schells.   That's how I got turned onto it in the first place.  Never got burned out on it, though..
    • Sink or swim? I am sure that some of you have heard that if you put seeds in water the ones that sink are better then the ones that float. I have heard this from the old guys but I have never tried it myself. Well I found myself with some radish seeds and I decided to pour them into a cup of water and sure enough about half sunk to the bottom while the rest floated. I got out a bowl and filled it with coconut husk planting mix and put the floaters on one side and the sinkers on the other. I am now waiting to see what side comes up first or if both sides will come up at the same time.   Any comments? Has anyone else heard of this and does anyone check their seeds before planting?
    • Maybe he's just hungry............    
    • Catfish!! I haven't had that in about ten years! Dang, that looks good! 
    • All day long you sit here and demand answers from everyone else but you never answer anyone else's questions. I wonder why that is?    
    • I would guess even Fletcher would say Stall has passed all expectations. I will give credit to Fletcher for building this team from absolute zero, we had almost no skill or prospects when he took over,  sure it took longer than we wanted but right now it is worth it. No doubt luck can play a roll, most GM's don't have a Suter, Parise, Stall & BB fall into their lap but quality drafting and development are also paying big dividends right now. We also have a lot of high end prospects that can fill in for the vets in the coming years. A cup is still a long ways away but this year is probably the best NHL team the state has ever seen.
