Pizza Sauce


1 tbsp butter
⅛ cup hand-grated yellow onion
¼ tsp oregano
¼ tsp salt
2 cloves garlic, minced
15 oz can crushed tomatoes
¼ tsp sugar
1 tbsp rough-chopped, fresh basil
1 tbsp olive oil
salt and pepper to taste


This needs to be thick rather than watery.

1. Heat at medium in a sauce pan until onion just begins to turn golden.

2. Heat to simmer, then reduce to low until about 1 cup of sauce left (20-30 minutes). Remove from heat and cool. If you need to save the sauce in the refrigerator, stop here and do the next step when making the pizza.

3. Add basil, olive oil and season to taste.
