Pizza Sauce


1 - 28 oz. can Tomatoes, crushed

1/2 cup Peppers, Bell, diced
2 tsp. Oregano, dry

We enjoy our pizza a little spicy, so we use the jalapeno peppers in the sauce.  If you prefer the sauce less spicy, use green bell peppers.  We also cook our pizza sauce in a covered glass bowl in the microwave oven so that it doesn't burn as it's thickening.

Wash, peel, and dice the onion and place in a covered glass pot or bowl.  Peel and dice/crush the garlic and add to the pot.  Wash the peppers and remove the stem end.  Do not remove the seeds, if you like the sauce "hot"; or remove the seeds, if you want the sauce less spicy.  Dice the peppers and add to the pot.  Add the oregano.

Place the covered bowl in the microwave oven on "high" for about 5 minutes, or until the onions begin to become translucent, and continue cooking on "high" in the microwave oven until the sauce thickens. 

If cooking on the stove top, sauté the veggies in a little water in the glass pot. After the onions, garlic, and peppers are cooked, add the crushed tomatoes, and simmer on low heat until the sauce thickens, stirring occasionally to prevent the sauce from sticking to the pot.

When the sauce has thickened, it is ready to spread on our pizza.  (The photo to the left shows a partially baked pizza crust with the pizza sauce spread over a layer of tofu cream.  To enlarge the photo, click on the photo or link)
