This is a very good sauce. I have tried quite a few and this is my husband’s favorite. I cut the water amount in half because of others recommendations, I highly recommend this or the sauce will be very thin and watery. I also add a ½ teaspoon of sugar. We make this now once a week!


Thanks Frank for the recipe......to make it a quick sauce, cut the water down to a cup and the oil down to 1/4 cup......simmer for 15 minutes and add flour to bind the oil, water and tomato and spices......voila! a fast pizza sauce that's ready while your dough is rising!


Excellent! I always use this recipe when I make my famous homemade pizza. I make the sauce and dough in the morning and let them both sit on the counter until dinner. Thus, the sauce has a marvelous flavor and the dough has had time to ferment. When making the sauce, I add less water and oil than the recipe calls for. This sauce has an incredible flavor! Thanks for a tremendous recipe. My family and friends rave about the pizza!
