Pizza Sauce

I've been searching for a great pizza sauce, so tired of using bottled stuff from the store. I've tried many recipes, but they never seem to work out quite right. I added all the things I liked about other recipes and finally came up with this one. A bit sweet and a bit spicy - perfect for a pizza.

Pizza Sauce

1 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 onion, diced
2 cloves Garlic, minced
796 ml Diced Tomatoes (28 oz)
2 Tbsp Tomato Paste
1 & 1/2 Tbsp Honey
2 tsp Anchovy Paste
3/4 tsp Oregano 
1/2 tsp Marjoram
3/4 tsp Basil
pinch Red Pepper Flakes
Salt & Pepper to taste
4 Tbsp Grated Parmesan Cheese

In a saucepan, heat oil & add onion. Cook until onion starts to become clear then add the garlic and cook for 30 seconds. Add diced tomatoes, tomato paste, honey, anchovy paste, oregano, marjoram, basil, red pepper flakes, salt & pepper. Bring to a boil and then turn down to a simmer for 30 minutes. Add parmesan cheese and cook for 5 more minutes. Let cool. Blend the sauce to get rid of the lumps of tomato & onion. Tastes even better if you let it sit for a day before using. Makes enough for about 2-3 pizzas. Also makes great dip for pizza sticks.

Try it with Best Ever Pizza Dough for a delicious home made meal.
