This makes enough for two pizzas actually.

* 2 15oz. cans of tomato sauce
* 1/4 cup of oregano
* 1 teaspoon of dried mined onion
* 1 teaspoon basil
* 1 teaspoon dried red pepper flakes
* 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic

* Simmer for a while so all the flavors infuse into the sauce.

I think I let it sit on the stove for about an hour or hour and a half. I always taste what I cook several times before deciding it's finished, too. I turned the burner off when we started warming the oven and pizza stone and set it aside for a bit knowing that it was just going to cook a little more anyway while the pizza baked.

I always let things sit so the flavors get infused into whatever I'm cooking. It doesn't seem to me that you can just toss six pepper corns into something and then cook and serve. A little simmer, let sit, stir, simmer again is my method.

Thanks for the pizza sauce recipe ainjil! We can't get delivery where we live, so the next time we make pizza we'll try out your sauce.

I agree, I like to let things with fresh ingredients cook as long as possible. Especially for something like this. I use a similar sauce for my spaghetti sauce and I usually let it sit for a good.... three or four hours? The meat gets so tender and it too lends itself to the sauce after a while.

I hope you like the sauce as much as we did. : )
