1 1/3 cups

This makes a chunky pizza sauce; if you prefer a smoother consistency, you can puree the sauce in a food processor with one tablespoon water. Make-ahead tip: Prepare the sauce a day or two ahead and refrigerate it, or make a double batch and freeze the extra for up to one month.


How to Make It

Step 1

Heat a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add onion to pan; sauté 3 minutes or until tender. Add garlic to pan; sauté 30 seconds. Stir in wine; cook 30 seconds. Add tomato paste, oregano, crushed red pepper, black pepper, and tomatoes. Reduce heat, and simmer for 20 minutes or until thick. Remove from heat; stir in vinegar. Cool.

Very good and easy to make. Definitely spicy though! Next time I'll halve the red pepper, b/c both my husband and I thought it was a bit overpowering.

The only thing that I found lacking from this recipe was salt. I had to add about half a teaspoon to make it a little less bland. It could be that I used fresh tomatoes instead of canned. I used 4 roma tomatoes, blended 3 and chopped 1. Also, I didn't have any white wine handy so I just added water. Im not a big fan of chunks, so I may blend all of the tomatoes next time. Overall it was a good recipe!
