1/2 onion, minced 1 clove garlic, finely minced 2 tablespoons olive or vegetable oil (more if needed) 1 can (16 ounce size) tomato sauce 1 can (6 ounce size) tomato paste 2 teaspoons sugar (optional) it takes out the bitterness of the tomato 1 teaspoon basil, dried 1 teaspoon oregano, dried 1/2 teaspoon salt
Mince onion and garlic. Saute in olive oil until onion is clear and tender. Add rest of the ingredients to skillet and simmer for 15-20 minutes. Makes enough sauce for 2 pizzas. Also makes a nice sauce for breadsticks and calzones.
Great pizza sauce. I've also doubled the recipe and froze it. Just thaw and spread on the pizza.

Great basic pizza sauce recipe! I used a chunky tomato sauce and would go with something smoother next time.

This is a lovely sauce, made even lovelier by the ease of making it. As the first reviewer stated, it is much better than store-bought sauce. It costs pennies to make and is simple enough to include additional favorite flavors without overdoing the flavor.

This sauce is amazing! I didn't have any basil :( so I substituted Italian Seasoning. It have the sauce a little kick. This sauce was so good, I think I may make a huge batch and can it.

Good basic recipe, to which I added extra tomato sauce, less onion, extra garlic, and lots of extra spices. Oh, and I added honey! Yum!

This sauce recipe was OK. I made it last night. I had to spice it up a bit as I found that the recipe recommended amounts of spices were not enough. It wasn't great, but it was pretty decent. Would I make it again? Yes, but I will experiment further with spicing it up a bit.

Super Easy - and the tough critics (kids) approve! I agreed and added half the sugar at the end for a perfect balance! I won't buy jarred again!
Goddess November 22, 2007 COMMENT: Question 1: Do I have to use red or white onion?
Question 2: Do I use rock or iodized salt?

Great sauce-family loved it! My wife thought it tasted like the sauce from Pizza Hut.
It's ok to cheat a little by using convenience foods in your cooking. Refrigerated crescent roll dough comes in very handy in recipes like cheddar spinach appetizer squares, mini pepperoni rolls, or simple bear claws.
