Jeff's favorite pizza sauce

Yield: 4 servings

Measure Ingredient
28 ounces Canned Progresso Plum
Tomatoes w/Basil, drained
12 ounces Tomato paste
½ teaspoon Salt
¼ teaspoon Pepper
¼ teaspoon Onion powder
1 teaspoon Oregano, heaping
¾ teaspoon Garlic powder
⅛ cup Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon Light brown sugar
2 teaspoons Olive oil

This sauce has a quality similar to restaurant flavor, but being freshly made seems to take on a better flavor.

Puree the drained tomatoes well. It is important to use Italian Plum Tomatoes, not regular canned tomatoes. The flavor is distinctively different. If you cannot find Progresso Plum Tomatoes with basil, add ½ ts. basil to the tomatoes.

Place the puree mixture in heavy saucepan. Add remaining ingredients except for the grated cheese and brown sugar. Simmer ½ hour, or longer if necessary. Add cheese and brown sugar last 10 minutes of cooking. The canned grated parmesan is good in this recipe, as well as fresh.

Sauce can be frozen if needed.

Enjoy! - Jeff Duke
