MINDI'S BEST EVER PIZZA SAUCE
2 T. olive oil
4 large or 6 regular cloves garlic; minced
1 15 oz. can tomato sauce
1 15 oz. can Italian diced tomatoes
1 6 oz. can tomato paste
1 C. fresh basil (you could use 2 T. dried, but I highly recommend fresh)
½ C. fresh grated Parmesan cheese
2 T. balsamic Vinegar
1 t. salt
1 t. red pepper flakes
1. In a small skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the minced garlic and sauté for 2-3 minutes.
2. In a food processor or blender combine the cooked garlic, along with the olive oil and all other ingredients.
3. Pulse or blend until everything is well combined; 2-3 minutes.
4. Spread over pizza crust or divide into servings and freeze.
5. Makes 4 cups.
*If you don’t have a blender or food processor, dice the basil really fine and stir everything to combine. Your sauce will be a little chunkier but it will still taste amazing!
*I usually use about 1 C. of sauce per pizza. But depending on your taste for sauce and the size of your pizzas, you may need more or less.
