homemade pizza sauce

I had some frozen tomatoes (whole) from last season and wanted to cook up some pizza sauce. Here's the website I used as a guide.


Here's the recipe I used.

4 cups peeled, cored, seeded and drained tomatoes
(about 1 gallon 1/2 ziplock bags stuffed full of tomatoes between golf ball and tennis ball size)

Throw in small sauce pan and start cooking on med/low. Add ingredients

1 tsp sugar
1/3 tsp black pepper
1/3 tsp salt
1/3 tsp oregano
1/8 tsp (pinch) of sweet basil

Stir occasionally to keep from scalding and keep the heat low (few bubbles) until thick. You can probably puree before you cook, but I did it when it appeared that all of the liquid was cooked out (about an hour) and it was pasty and perfect. Yield 1 pint (about 2 pizzas worth).


There wasn't much liquid to cook out as the frozen tomatoes tend to loose their juice easily when peeled and cored. I then threw them in a collander until I was ready to use them.

The main differences between her recipe and mine is the sugar and the thickening. She said to add 1.5 T to 6 cups of tomatoes, blech, sounded way toooo sweet to me. 1 tsp to 4 cups was perfect! I also didn't use any cornstarch - it really didn't need it.
