I noticed that most (all?) the pizza sauce recipes call for either tomato paste or tomato sauce or both. I wanted to do it from scratch! So I experimented until I got it right. This is much better than the store-bought sauce with none of those nasty preservatives.

A nice way to use up an ubandance of romas this season. Used my food processor for the first step. Decided to cut back the sugar a tad and it was still a sweet sauce. After simmering I used my emersion blender for step three. Threw in some dried basil and oregano. I advise cutting back the sugar to taste. Enjoy!

I've tried this recipe in the past and my only complaint is that it is a little sweet. I'm going to try it again today and ex the sugar.
