Pizza Sauce Recipe
« on: March 17, 2015, 04:29:57 PM »
Pizza Sauce 
1 (28-ounce) can Carmelina Italian tomatoes (if using Nina San Marzano from Costco, don’t add the basil, it is already in the can)

1 T extra-virgin olive oil
1 T unsalted butter
½ t garlic powder
1 ½ t dried oregano
½ t dried basil
1 t sea salt
1/8 t red pepper flakes 

Combine butter and olive oil in saucepan over medium heat until butter is melted. Add garlic powder, crushed red peppers, salt, basil and oregano, stirring frequently until fragrant, but not browned. Add the tomatoes with the juice. Put on lid (with vents) bring to a simmer, but do not boil. Simmer on 4-5 for about 90 minutes, stirring occasionally and crushing the tomatoes with the back of a spoon. Once cooked down you should have two cups of sauce, enough for 4 pizzas.

Is the butter a necessary ingredient in this? Curious how it affects a sauce without it.

Butter adds a complexity to the sauce, but you could omit it. To be honest I only use my no cook pizza sauce these days, I think it tastes fresher and there is no butter!
