Easy Pizza Sauce for Bonnie

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.
Bonnie made some pizza dough at 6:30 am and then forgot about it and went to work, walking back in the door at 5:30 pm.

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.

Place in small bowl; cool to room temperature This sauce may be made up to 3 days ahead and refrigerated or up to 2 months ahead and frozen.
