Description

Pizza sauce made the right way, with time and wine! Sauce can be packaged and frozen in servings, and used as a dipping sauce.

Ingredients
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ cup chopped onion (large chunks)
  • 5 cloves garlic, halved
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 (28 ounce) can tomato puree
  • 1 ½ cups red wine
  • ⅛ cup chopped fresh basil
  • ⅛ cup chopped fresh oregano
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
Directions
  1. 1. Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat; stir in onion and garlic. Season with salt and pepper. Cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes.
  2. 2. Add tomato puree, red wine, basil, and oregano. Increase heat a touch and bring to a simmer. Cook until sauce reaches desired consistency, 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Stir in butter and sugar; simmer for 10 more minutes. Remove from heat, allow to cool, and refrigerate 8 hours to overnight.
  3. 3. For a smooth sauce, remove onion and garlic pieces before spreading sauce on pizza crust. For a chunky sauce, use as is.
