Great Authentic Homemade Pizza Sauce Recipe
- 1 medium onion, finely chopped
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 500 grams can whole/chopped Italian plum tomatoes
- 2 teaspoons concentrated tomato puree
- 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
- 3 teaspoons sugar
In a large saucepan, gently saute the onion in the oil until transparent.
Add the tomatoes and bring to a boil. Once simmering, add the tomato puree, the vinegar, and sugar.
Simmer for a full hour, using a wooden spoon to break up any tomato pieces.
If the sauce still has pieces of tomato, pass through a sieve before bottling and storing it in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
Spread thinly on pizza, use over pasta with grated, strong, hard cheese, or use as a base for more complex meat sauces for pasta.
