A good pizza sauce is easy to make. Just a lot of Goodness; Good tomatoes, Good olive Oil, Good Oregano.
Simplicity can sometimes create amazing things. The base for great pizzas as the less cooked the tomato is, the more flavor it has of itself.
It’s a sauce that can be made well ahead and stored for up to a week in the refrigerator or stored in smaller containers in the freezer and use whenever needed, even as a part of a pasta sauce.
Triple the quantity for storing.
