Pizza Sauce

You won't buy pizza sauce any more once you have tried this. Fabulous!

1 tbs olive oil
1 28 oz. can crushed tomatoes
1 large onion, finely chopped
1 chopped garlic clove
3 tbs. tomato paste
1 tsp dried oregano, crumbled
1 tsp dried basil, crumbled
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt

Heat olive oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add onion, cook until soft, about 5 min. Add garlic, cook 30 sec. Add tomatoes, tomato paste, oregano, basil, sugar, salt and black pepper. Heat to boiling, reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer uncovered, stirring occasionally until sauce is thick, about 10-15 min. Transfer sauce to bow and let cool. Use as base for pizza on par-cooked dough crust. Makes enough for 2 pizzas. Freezes well.
