Pizza Sauce                                     Shilleen Whibley

1  28 oz.               canned crushed tomatoes
1 Tblsp.                dried parsley
2 tsp.                   dried basil
1 tsp.                   dried oregano
1/2 tsp.                dried thyme
1/2 tsp.                marjoram
1/4 tsp.                freshly ground pepper
1/4 cup                olive oil
2 tsp.                   granulated garlic powder
1/4 cup                red wine vinegar
1 1/2 tsp.             salt

Order of making a Pizza
1.   hand toss dough and lay on pizza peel (I put   
      whole wheat flour   & cornmeal on the peel .
2.   lightly brush dough with olive oil (creates a barrier so dough doesn't get soggy)
3.   Put sauce on.
4.   Sprinkle a bit of cheese
5.   Add toppings ( veggies & meat....)etc.)
6.   Top with grated parmesan reggiano
7.   Do you like spices?(top with whatever 
    you prefer......sesame seeds, dried red chilli   
    peppers, oregano, fresh basil.....and for sure
    always fresh ground pepper.
8.   Now throw it in the oven (as hot as your oven
      can go....make sure to put the stone in the
      oven first, then turn the oven on.....and let the
      stone get hot for a good half and hour.)
        The Pizza will only take 8-12 min. max.
                            Oh Yummy!
