As our gardening season dies down one of the things I like to do with the last of the tomatoes is to make some Oven Roasted Pizza Sauce. It’s easy and a great way to use up the variety of tomatoes still coming in from the garden.

The recipe calls for 4 pounds of tomatoes, and I have to admit I just cut up enough tomatoes to fill my 11×14 pan. Remove the core from the tomato and chop them up. You can use any type from Roma to cherry tomatoes.

To the cut up tomatoes add one coarsely chopped onion, ¼ cup of fresh herbs of choice or a smaller amount of dried herbs. I’ve been adding a mixture of dried Italian herbs to the tomatoes. I also add 3 large garlic cloves, chopped. To the mixture add 1/8 cup of olive oil and salt and pepper to taste. Stir the whole mixture and place it in a preheated 450 degree oven. Roast for 70 minutes without opening the oven door.

Sometimes I cook the sauce down to thicken it.

Oven Roasted Pizza Sauce

This recipe I do not can, instead I place 2 cups of sauce in freezer containers and it is ready for our homemade pizza! 2 cups equals 2 pizzas.
