  • Add tomato puree, red wine, basil, and oregano. Increase heat a touch and bring to a simmer. Cook until sauce reaches desired consistency, 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Stir in butter and sugar; simmer for 10 more minutes. Remove from heat, allow to cool, and refrigerate 8 hours to overnight.

  • For a smooth sauce, remove onion and garlic pieces before spreading sauce on pizza crust. For a chunky sauce, use as is.
