A nice way to use up an ubandance of romas this season. Used my food processor for the first step. Decided to cut back the sugar a tad and it was still a sweet sauce. After simmering I used my emersion blender for step three. Threw in some dried basil and oregano. I advise cutting back the sugar to taste. Enjoy!
I had extra tomatoes from my garden, so I decided to make this sauce. However, I didn't want to make as much so I halved it. Instead of garlic salt, I used fresh crushed garlic. I also omitted the sugar completely. I also added a sprinkle of dried oregano. I had to let it simmer for almost 2 hrs before it had the right consistency. Once it was done, I tasted it and it was amazing! Very flavorful. I couldn't believe how good it tasted being made with so few ingredients.
I saw that many reviewers cut back on the sugar, so I did as well and used brown sugar as that is what I grew up watching my mom use. I like more sauce on my pizza and felt it did not yield enough sauce for more than a couple pizzas.
I think this is a good basic recipe and was happy to use Roma's out of the garden.
I did not run through the food processor a second time bc I thought the consistency was fine after simmering down.
This recipe is very very sweet. Too sweet for traditional pizza, but just right as a dipping sauce (for cheese breads, Italian breads, etc.). This sauce would work well for fruit based pizzas like pineapple or a sweet BBQ chicken pizza. The texture is wonderful. We found no need to blend the sauce a second time as it cooked into smoothness just fine.
I think the measurements for the Garlic Salt are incorrect... I made this to the recipe EXCEPT I used 1 tb Garlic Powder and 1 Tb Garlic Salt (I thought 2 tb. salt seemed like too much) and it was still extremely salty. Next time I will use 1 Tsp. Garlic Salt and 1 tsp Garlic Powder.
I think this is very easy and a great recipe. I add a little touch of crushed red pepper and the sauce comes spicy! (that's how I like it) I just add in oregano and basil towards the end.....comes great and I get just enough for the pizzas I make! Leave the sugar for the end if you're not a "sweet sauce" person :)
