Pizza Sauce

2017 and this is still my favorite -no cook - Pizza Sauce
Tomorrow is my son’s birthday and he requested pizza for his special day which means that I need to make the sauce today so it can sit in the fridge overnight and allow the flavors to wake up and get delicious.

Make your pizza dough ahead of time too.

PIZZA SAUCE
make enough sauce for 2 12" pizzas

¾         cup                  boiling hot water
2          cloves              garlic, minced fine
1          tsp.                  dried oregano
1          tsp.                  dried basil
½         tsp.                  sugar
½         tsp.                  kosher salt
1/8       tsp.                  red pepper flakes
6          oz. can             tomato paste
¼         cup                  olive oil


Place the garlic, oregano, basil, sugar, salt and red pepper in a bowl. Pour boiling water over the garlic mixture and let sit for 5 minutes to let the garlic cook and mellow a bit.

Whisk in the tomato paste and olive oil; mix until the tomato sauce has absorbed the oil.

Make this sauce a day ahead and keep in the fridge so the seasonings have a chance to truly flavor the sauce.
