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
