|Making pizza dough becomes easy with time.|
As well, it can wait around for a number of hours
to be made, as did the Bonnie's pizza above.
She saw the dough, put it on the pizza pan and covered it with sauce and a sharp cheddar cheese.
Now she asks me how to make her own sauce.
Ingredients for a simple sauce follow.
As well, you can put "pizza sauce" in the search engine of this blog and find another excellent and easy sauce.
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced (you may add up to 8 cloves)
1 (14 1/2 ounce) can diced tomatoes, undrained (or a 28 oz tin)
1⁄4 teaspoon salt
1⁄8 teaspoon pepper, freshly ground
2 tablespoons fresh basil, coarsely chopped or 2 teaspoons dried basil
(Another choices for the spices is 1 tsp dried basil, 1 tsp dry oregano, 1 tsp thyme. Or another choices is just to use 1 tbsp dried Italian seasoning.)
Heat oil in medium saucepan over a medium heat until hot.
Add garlic; cook 30 seconds or until fragrant.
Stir in tomatoes, salt and pepper and cook for 8-10 (up to 20 min) minutes or until slightly thickened, stirring and mashing tomatoes with potato masher until crushed.
Stir in basil.
