I've had a number of requests for the pizza sauce that I made for my pizza video, so here it is! This is a very simple sauce to make, and yet it works so well, and for more than just pizza. It makes a good general tomato sauce for other uses, too.

Let's get started!

NOTE: This recipe involves an alcoholic beverage, so be sure you are of the legal age in your locale to be able to handle and use such substances. Here in Michigan, that's 21.

Step 1: The Players

Here are the ingredients:
  • 1 can of diced tomatoes
  • 1 can of tomato paste
  • 1/2 of a small onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried Italian herb mix
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon sugar (or to taste)
  • Some water (the amount depends upon how much cooking down you want to do)
  • A bit of oil for sauteing the onions
It looks like a long list, but it's not so bad as that. Many of these are things you would automatically reach for anyway. It just looks imposing seeing every detail laid out. :)
My family is having a cook off and were seeing who can make the best <a href="http://www.chicagodeepdishpizza.ca/en/" rel="nofollow">pizza in Calgary</a> at our family reunion. I'm not the best cook so I need something simple yet will still taste good and I think I'll have to give this a try. Thanks.

Sounds yummy! I live in ecuador and can't find any good pizza sauces so have been trying to make my own. New to pizza making but having a blast trying new recipes. Having some locals over tonight, I'll see what they think.
I have got to bake this :)
You make me hungry man!
did you try to put your onion 10 min in a microwave oven. It could appear strange, but they are &quot;fried&quot; (tasted fried) without using oil ;)
That's a completely new one on me. I'll have to try that sometime. Thanks!
Very tasty looking... my stomach is starting to growl. 5*!
I've got to try this. I want to add mushrooms. I am drooling.
