Garden Fresh Pizza Sauce

pizza sauce retry size
My daughter Grace makes this sauce every summer with fresh tomatoes from our garden, and we look forward to using it all year long.
  • 28 oz. skinned and crushed tomatoes (We usually puree in blender.) (Skin tomatoes easily by first plunging in boiling water until skins just begin to crack and peel. Then plunge into a clean sink full of ice water. Skins will slide off easily with a knife.)
  • 2 cans (6 oz. each) tomato paste
  • 1/2 c. water
  • 2 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp. dried basil
  • 1 1/2 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. ground pepper
  • 1 1/2 tsp. parsley

In large pan combine tomatoes, tomato paste, water, sugar, basil, oregano, garlic powder, and salt. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer uncovered for approximately 3 hours until sauce reaches desired thickness, stirring occasionally. Stir in pepper; cook 5 minutes longer. You can use immediately on pizza, or can in a boiling water bath for 10 minutes for pints and quarts.
