Basic Pizza Sauce
A pizza crust takes some time and effort to prepare, so the sauce should come together quickly. What's the trick to a quick, easy, and flavorful pizza sauce?
Why This Recipe Works
For our Basic Pizza Sauce recipe, we used canned crushed tomatoes, cooking them until just thickened, about 15 minutes. The sauce actually began to lose its fresh flavor if we cooked it much longer. To flavor the sauce, we added a little garlic cooked in olive oil, being sure not to let the garlic brown; otherwise the sauce tasted bitter.
