Easy Pizza Sauce

Here is the sauce for the pizza I made!  Quick easy and somewhat less processed than the jarred varieties.  It is also much lower in sodium.

Easy Pizza Sauce
Inspired by the sauce published by Annie's Eats posting of a recipe by Cook's Illustrated.

1 (14.5 oz) can diced tomatoes with basil, garlic and oregano, no salt added
2 (8 oz) cans tomato sauce, no salt added
½ t salt
1/8-1/4 t sugar
1 T extra-virgin olive oil
Ground black pepper, to taste

In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, combine diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, salt and sugar.  Bring the mixture to a boil, then lower the heat to medium-low and continue to simmer, about 25 minutes.  Remove from heat, stir in oil and season with pepper to taste.

Note:  This recipe is enough for two pizzas.  I blended my diced tomatoes because one of my kids doesn’t like tomato chunks.  Quick and easy way to make the sauce even more kid-friendly!
