Prized Pizza Sauce

Okay so it hasn't won any prizes except for "my favorite pizza sauce!" To me, the sauce makes the pizza. Just throwing tomato sauce and oregano together will work, but it's nothing compared to this tasty recipe. The cool thing is you can use it for many things, not just pizza. I used it for calzones this last time. So good!

Pizza Sauce

1/2 c. onions, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 (12oz) can tomato paste
1 1/2 c. water
2 Tbsp Italian seasoning
1 tsp salt
pepper to taste

Saute the onions and garlic in oil on medium heat until tender and clear.

Add half the tomato paste, stir. Add the water, then the rest of the tomato paste.

Add seasoning, salt and pepper. You can adjust the seasoning to your taste; I like a little more. Bring to a boil then turn on low. Cover and simmer for at least 15 minutes, but you can let it simmer as long as you like. The longer it cooks, the more flavorful it gets.

Use as needed and desired.
