I LOVE pizza, and we make it at home all of the time. I usually make the sauce myself with just canned whole tomatoes, because it is so incredibly easy. And seriously delicious. But with an over-abundance of yummy tomatoes from the garden, why would I bother with canned?

The results were AMAZING. And it was so easy!

Step 1: Ingredients

I used a fair amount of golden pear tomatoes, and small plum tomatoes. They are pretty teeny, so I used a bunch... but they are also very sweet tasting tomatoes, which taste fantastic in this sauce. You can use regular tomatoes, though!

I also used shallots, lots of garlic, olive oil, kosher salt, pepper, and a good handful of a bunch of fresh herbs... basil, oregano, thyme, and rosemary, to be exact. You can use dried, but the fresh ones taste amazing if you happen to have them growing.
How much is a bunch?
Oh....my.....God. That looks so thick and hearty, almost like jambalaya. Do you ever use that for other tomato-saucy dishes?
Oh wow! Looks at those beautiful tomatoes. :D
Nice photo !
