“The basic pizza dough and sauce ready and waiting for your favorite toppings!” - by Siegela
Original recipe yields 2 (14 inch) pizzas
- In a small bowl, dissolve yeast and sugar in warm water. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes.
- In a food processor, combine flour, Italian seasoning and salt. Pulse until mixed. Add yeast mixture, flat beer and oil. Pulse until a ball is formed. Scrape dough out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead for several minutes until dough is smooth and elastic. Allow dough to rest for 2 to 3 minutes. Divide dough in half, and shape into balls. Place dough balls in separate bowls, and cover with plastic wrap. Allow to rise at room temperature for about 1 hour, then store in the refrigerate overnight.
- To make the sauce: Heat olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Saute onions until tender. Stir in garlic, and cook for 1 minute. Crush tomatoes into saucepan. Add tomato paste, basil, parsley and oregano. Simmer for 10 minutes.

"I usesd just the sauce with homemade crust (Jay's Pizza Crust, also from this site), and it was THE BOMB!!!! I can not say enough how this absolutely made my pizza delicious rather than just good.

"I already have my own recipe for pizza dough that has never failed me, but yesterday I had no pizza sauce on hand so I found this recipe. Am I ever glad I did - the sauce tastes incredible! It has j..." See moreust the right mix of tomato flavour and sweetness, and using whole tomatoes and chopped onions adds a lot of chunkiness to it. It makes a LOT of sauce too; I'm going to freeze the leftover sauce, and it will probably be enough to last me for the next few months (although I may want to make pizza more often now, so maybe it won't last quite that long!). Thanks very much for an excellent recipe."
"I gave this no stars b/c I only used the sauce recipe. It turned out just o.k., I think it needed something. I increased the seasonings, like others mentioned and added a teaspoon of sugar to help w..." See moreith the bitterness, but it still wasn't impressive. I will be trying the dough recipe next time though…thanks anyway."
