Pizza Sauce For Rookies

Updated on September 26, 2011

Creating A Great Tasting Pizza Sauce

Homemade Pizza Sauce

3-4 Beefsteak Tomotoes

I large yellow onion, diced

extra-virgin olive oil

3-4 large garlic cloves, smashed with flat knife

italian seasoning

1/4 cup of red wine


In a medium saucepan on medium heat, add olive oil to coat pan. Add onion and garlic, sautee around 5 mins until onion is translucent. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Add tomatoes and mix together. Reduce heat to low and simmer for nearly 35-40 minutes. Midway through the cooking process, add wine and Italian seasoning. Continue to reduce down until most moisture has evaporated.

If tomatoe sauce is overly tart, you may want to add some sugar to take edge or bite off the sauce.

Season to taste.

Editors note: always taste your product. You will be amazed at what proper seasoning will do for your sauces. A little salt will go a long way in developing your layers of flavor and bringing out the incredible taste of your ingredients.

      there's a lot of varirations, just try 'em out and see what you like. I am coming out with another one soon. Stay tuned, this one will be one that I inherited from an Italian family and we used to eat it every Friday. Will let you know when it's available. Once you do your own, you won't ever go back, it's that good!
