Homemade Pizza Sauce

Homemade Pizza Sauce

1 can (29 ounces) tomato sauce
1 can (12 ounces) tomato paste
1 Tablespoon Italian Seasonings
1 Tablespoon Oregano
1-2 teaspoons fennel seeds, crushed
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon canola oil

In a saucepan over medium heat, combine tomato sauce and paste. Add remaining ingredients; mix well. Bring to a boil, stirring contantly. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 1 hour, stirring occasionally. Cool. Pour into freezer containers, leaving 1/2-inch headspace. Freeze for up to 12 months. Yield: about 4 cups

Use the sauce with crust and toppings of your choice to make a pizza; 1 1/3 cup sauce will cover a crust in a 15x10x1-inch pan.

I love this recipe. I usually make a double batch and after cooling place 1 and 1/3 cups in a pint freezer bag. I like to freeze in the bags because they lay flat and you can thaw the sauce quickly.
