Fresh Pizza Sauce

This pizza sauce takes just two minutes to whip up. It is based off America’s Test Kitchen recipe. You can adjust the seasonings to your taste.

For the tomatoes, it is best to use organic. Tomatoes are the main flavor so they need to be of excellent flavor. Make sure to read the label and get tomatoes with no seasoning or flavorings added. I like CostCo’s organic diced tomatoes. I have never had any problems with them.

If you have a strong blender like a Vitamix, you don’t need to peel the garlic. If you don’t, use the flat side of a chefs knife to crush the garlic to easily remove the peel. Toss the garlic into the blender.

For the red wine vinegar and olive oil, because this is such a simple recipe the better quality you use the better the sauce will taste. Organic is usually the best tasting in my opinion.
