Pizza Sauce

My husband and I got a pizza pan and a spring form pan as wedding presents seven months ago and it has spawned a love for making pizzas. We probably make pizza twice per month. We've tried everything from deep dish barbecue pizza with cornmeal crust to spinach, artichoke and chicken sausage (pictured above). As pizza toppings are a personal preference for many, I am not going to post how to make pizza, but rather my sauce recipe. Go grab yourself a bag of Trader Joe's pizza dough, make some sauce, and enjoy creating!


1 T olive oil
1/2 yellow onion, finely chopped
5 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 can of organic crushed tomatoes
1 small can of tomato paste
1 T Italian seasoning
1 T thyme
1/2 t fennel seeds
1/4 cup fresh basil, finely chopped


Mice the garlic and onions, add to sauce pot with olive oil and saute on medium heat until translucent. Add cans of tomato paste and crushed tomatoes and remaining ingredients through fennel. Simmer for at least 10 minutes, turn down heat and add fresh basil. Now, you are ready to create pizzas. Enjoy!
