Simple Tomato Sauce
Serves: will cover 2 12-inch pizzas, with some left over for dipping!
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 can (15 ounces) crushed tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • ¾ teaspoon dried oregano
  • ¼ teaspoon dried thyme
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • 1½ tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • salt, to taste
  1. Heat olive oil in a small saute pan over medium-high heat. Once oil is warm, add minced garlic and cook, stirring frequently for 1 to 2 minutes, or until fragrant. Keep a close eye on the garlic; if it becomes brown or scorched it will taste bitter.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine garlic oil mixture with the remaining ingredients. Season with salt to taste. Use immediately. May refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
