As much as I L-O-V-E pizza I am not a fan of the sauce. It is usually too sweet for my liking or it is the "you want crust with all that sauce???". I set out about a year ago looking for the perfect pizza sauce and I found it!! I use good ole Google to find a pizza sauce recipe. However, I can't remember where on Google I found the following recipe from...sorry! It is the perfect combination of sweet and spice. It is super easy to make. Will for warn you, that is makes a ton of sauce. Good part is it freezes fabulously. Enough where usually 2 ladle full of sauce per pizza and that equals to be about 5-7 pizza nights!! Okay now to the good part - Homemade Pizza Sauce recipe.....Enjoy!!

My ingredients...forgot fresh garlic so this garlic was used
Need a good pot and a spoon...keep this spoon in mind!
Woops!! Forgot the oil and garlic picture. This is
all the tomatoes mixed with garlic and oil
Add Brown Sugar...trust me!
Mix to dissolve all the br. sugar...ahhh there is that spoon again!
So I totally spaced out and forgot the rest of my recipe pictures. Sorry about that. However once you dump in the seasoning all that is left is to boil and then simmer. Besides a watched pot never boils anyway right?!?! I hope you try this recipe and let me know what you think. If you have a sauce recipe that you think is awesome share!! I can't promise that I will try it but maybe my readers will want to!
