    I take a can of tomatoes and puree it. Then I add tomato paste, Italian seasoning and garlic. It can then be put in a sauce pan to cook down a little. If it doesn't get thick enough, add more tomato paste.

    edited because I didn't proof read.

    Thank you both.... I am using frozen tomatoes from our garden... I've already let them thaw, puree them, now they are in a sauce pan simmering... so I have to add the tomato paste and herbs. I just didnt know how much paste to add, but I'm on the right track [​IMG]

    My favorite pizza sauce,

    pureed tomatoes.
    fresh chopped garlic - to taste two large cloves is great for me.
    oregano, to taste, teaspoon or so


    or for something slightly different with "flavor bites"

    diced tomatoes, adding the same ingredients as above.


    canned, fresh or frozen all work fine.

    Pizza, yum,


    Pizza night,
