Excellent balance of herbs and tomatoes, adding olive oil at ends gives great flavor.

We just returned from an extensive trip to Italy and we were on the hunt for a pizza sauce that is similar to the typical sauce on the pizzas in Italy. This is it! I used Cento (Italian brand) tomato puree and didn't change any of the ingredients. It is perfect. Thank you!

This was delicious and easy. I didn't have puree so I threw slightly drained canned diced tomatoes and all other ingredients (including the oil) into a blender for a few minutes before transferring them to a pot. Because I have fresh herbs in my garden right now, I threw fresh basil and oregano in the blender with everything too and it was just wonderful. My children thought it was the best!
