SBcanning recommends “home-made” especially when it comes to making sauces, similar to this one, because, then we know exactly what is in the sauce. It is a good thing to remember this, as our society has become so fast-paced, so that our food is so often bought at the store, pre-packaged, and we never really know what we are eating.

  • 1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 elephant clove of garlic, minced
  • 1 Spanish onion, chopped finely
  • 1 can stewed tomatoes (my favorite is Aylmer’s or Hunt’s)
  • 2 small jars tomato paste
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • 1/2 tsp brown sugar
  • 1 Dash of freshly ground pepper
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 bay leaf


  • Saute onion and garlic in the olive oil until transparent and soft; then add the remaining ingredients, mixing while adding them.
  • Simmer on very low for 1 hour, or until sauce thickens; stir occasionally during the simmering time.
  • Healthy Recipe yields sauce to make 1 large or 2 medium pizzas. Taste is the best.
  • Look under Main Categories, Pizza for the sauce and yummy different toppings to see what is your fancy.
