A Great Pizza Sauce

One of my best friends, Sandra Falconi, gently reminded me yesterday, that it's been a while since I've posted a new recipe.  So Sandra, this one is for you.

I'm trying to perfect my pizza, so I've been experimenting with pizza sauces.  Here is a recipe I've been experimenting with that turned out great. 


1 (15 ounce) can tomato sauce.  I used Primo Hot and Zesty 

1/4 cup broth or water

1 teaspoon sugar

1/4 teaspoon dried oregano

1/4 teaspoon dried basil leaves

1/4 teaspoon dried thyme

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon onion powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon black pepper

1 whole bay leaf

1/2 teaspoon lemon juice

Pinch of cayenne or chili pepper


1.  Combine all the ingredients in a small saucepan. 

2.  Cook over medium heat until the sauce reaches a boil.

3.  Turn down the heat to simmer.  Cover the pot and cook for 45 minutes more.

4.  Sauce makes enough for two large pizzas.  For a wonderful pizza crust, click here:  Mamma's Pizza Crust
