I'm thinking of making a New York Style pizza. Got any good recipes for pizza sauce? I want to be able to taste the sauce, not like what you get at Pizza Hutt where you can't even taste the sauce.

pizza sauce = tomato sauce, imo.

make a tomato sauce and spice/herb it up to your taste.

It's all about the ingredients. You don't need a fancy recipe.

Go to whole foods (or the equivalent) and buy a big can of San Marzano tomatoes, some organic, local garlic, and some organic unfiltered EVOO.

Mince the garlic.

Over MEDIUM-LOW heat, gently warm the garlic in a few tablespoons of olive oil for about 10-15 minutes (don't allow the garlic to take on any color), then add the tomatoes. Increase the heat slightly. OPTIONAL: if you like a sweeter sauce, add a teaspoon of white sugar at this point.

Gently simmer for about 10-15 more minutes.

Turn off the heat. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper and a little more oil.

You'll have a lovely, intensely tomato-y, garlic-y sauce.

Okay, so I make everything in batches that are too big...

2 can San Marzano tomatoes
1/2 cup red wine
1/2 shallot (minced)
2 cloves garlic (minced)
3 basil leaves (minced)
1 Tbsp minced fresh oregano
1 tsp minced fresh thyme

Reduce the shit for an hour or so.
