Fast & Delicious Pizza Sauce

It’s easy to buy pizza sauce, even organic and gluten-free pizza sauce.  But this homemade sauce is so delicious, and so economical…not to mention easy to make.  I find myself only buying pizza sauce under duress.  It’s also a great dipping sauce, and the red wine vinegar adds a lovely, bright flavor that’s addicting.  This recipe makes a lot of sauce, which is great, because you’ll find family members using it all the time.  It should be enough for two full batches of my Best Ever Gluten-Free Pizza Dough Recipe, or 10 small pizzas.

Especially in the summer, Costco carries the large 6# cans of San Marzano tomatoes, that are divine and irreplaceable.  Unbelievably, they are $3.99 for the huge can.  I buy cases to get us through pizza nights all winter!

Nutritional Note: This recipe is free of gluten, sugar and cow’s dairy. It is compliant with the SCD & GAPS diets. It isn’t compliant with Clean because of the tomatoes (part of the nightshade family) that are eliminated.

Prep Time: This recipe takes about 5 minutes to blend, and can be used right away but is best made at least the morning of pizza nite or even a few days prior (and refrigerate).

Yield: Approximately 12 cups, enough for two pizza nites!

Kitchen Tools: Food processor (I use the Breville Sous Chef), large 5 quart bowl, spatula, can opener

Ingredients:

6 lb 10oz can San Marzano tomatoes (equivalent of 4 each 28 oz cans) ($3.99 Costco)

8 tablespoons red wine vinegar ($0.50 Commissary)

4 teaspoons dried basil or 8 teaspoons fresh basil ($1.99 Commissary)

4 teaspoons dried oregano (dried is best) ($0.25 Commissary)

2 teaspoons dried thyme or 4 teaspoons fresh thyme ($1.99 Commissary)

4 teaspoons garlic powder, or 20 cloves crushed (fresh is best) ($0.40 Costco)

4 teaspoons sea salt ($0.20 Costco)

2 teaspoons fresh ground black pepper ($0.30 Costco)

Recipe Cost: $9.62 for the batch; $4.81 per pizza nite; approximately $0.80/cup!

 You’ll need a food processor.  I love my Breville Sous Chef, but I used a Cuisinart for 15 years and it was a workhorse.  Place half the large can of San Marzano tomatoes into the food processor.

Blend the food processor for about 15 seconds, or until the tomatoes are crushed and the herbs and spices are thoroughly mixed.

Pour this mixed sauce into a large bowl, I used a 5qt stainless steel bowl.  Then pour the second half of the San Marzano tomatoes into the food processor and blend for another 15 seconds, or until crushed.

Pour the second half of the puree into the bowl, and let stand for the flavors to blend until it’s time to make pizzas.  I try to make the pizza sauce in the morning, so the flavors have all day to marry.
