Sweet and Spicy Pizza Sauce

 Can you ever really say no to pizza? Dave can't. So when he asked for some 'za on Sunday night at 7pm, I had to come up with a really quick sauce. Um, sure, I could have picked up the phone and ordered a pizza...but that's not really my style.

This is a slightly sweet sauce with a perfect hint of heat that shines through even a heavy dosing of cheese.

Homemade pizza is at your fingertips with this super tasty, Fat and Happy pizza sauce!

Tips and techniques: If you're short on time, be creative - use French bread or a tortilla or purchase pre-made dough from your local grocer. If you have the time to let the dough rise, try my homemade thin crust pizza dough recipe.



Sweet and Spicy Pizza Sauce

1/2 cup diced onion
3 cloves garlic, chopped
salt and pepper, 1/2 tsp each
1 tbls dried oregano
pinch of sugar
1/2 cup water
1 1/2 cup crushed tomatoes
1/8 - 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper

Saute the onions quickly in a drizzle of olive oil over high heat.  Let the edges of the onions almost turn brown.  Add in the garlic, dried oregano, sugar, salt and pepper, cook for just a minute. Add in the the water, crushed tomatoes and the cayenne pepper. 

Simmer all the ingredients until the sauce thickens, about 5 minutes.  Use immediately or store in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
