Homemade Pizza Sauce


  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1 cup chopped fresh tomato
  • 8 ounces tomato sauce
  • 6 ounces tomato paste
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons oregano
  • 2 teaspoons basil
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper


    In large skillet, saute onion and garlic in oil until tender. Stir in remaining ingredients.  Simmer for 30 minutes. Stir occasionally.

      I make this in big batches and freeze it :-)
      Update August 2010: I made this in the crock pot today.  Here is how I did it:
      Add the oil, onions and garlic in the crock pot and cook on high for approximately 30 minutes or until onion is tender.  Add the chopped, peeled and seeded tomatoes (I use way more than it calls for) and remaining ingredients and cook on high for an hour, then reduce to low until ready to use. You can also run this through the blender for a more smoother sauce - this will depend on your own taste.
