Pizza Sauce

I wanted pizza for dinner but had no pizza sauce. This makes a robust flavorful sauce that holds up well with homemade pizza crust. It is also a thick sauce that doesn't make the crust soggy while baking.


1 can 15 ounces diced tomatoes (drained)
1 small can tomato paste
1 tablespoon olive oil ( I used a Tuscan infused oil)
2 cloves garlic
teaspoons Italian seasoning
1 teaspoon sugar (optional)
1 tablespoon basil 

Drain the canned tomatoes, saving the juice to thin the sauce if you desire. Combine all the ingredients in your food processor and pulse until you have a thick sauce. If the sauce is too thick for your liking, add some juice a tablespoon at a time until you are happy with the consistency. 
Add the sauce to your favorite pizza crust, bake and enjoy.
