I've used this recipe many, many times -- we love it. I actually use it so much, I put together a big batch of all the dry ingredients so I don't have to measure out all the spices every time (let alone go searching my pantry to find them every time)... I multiplied all the dry ingredients (onion powder through red pepper flakes) by 8 (eg, 1/4 tsp becomes 2 tsp, 1/8 is 1 tsp, etc), mixed them all up, and store them in a small jar -- every time I want to make the sauce, I just have to measure out 2 tsp of the dry ingredients.



We love this recipe! Hint: For easy/quick prep, scale this recipe to 40 and combine the dry spices in a spice jar. Whenever you want fresh sauce, use appx. 1 tablespoon of the mixture in the regular recipe.



This was very good, and I made no changes. My only comment is that it doesn't make a whole lot, so if you have a large pizza or calzone I would suggest doubling the recipe.
