Tricia's Week 3 Recipe, a bit late!

I am a bad blogger! I admit it.  I am, however enjoying this challenge, three weeks in.  My last two recipes featured pork.  This time, I'm moving to one of my favorite!  Trev and I make our own pizza crust and pizzas quite a bit, but I haven't delved into the world of homemade sauce.  After searching the internet a bunch, I found common ground on sauce recipes, and made this one up major source was HERE:

Tricia's Pizza Sauce
Ingredients ( will do this in "sauce can I found at store, many pizzas and / small sauce can, one -two pizzas)
  • 29 oz tomato puree / 10 oz tomato puree
  • 2/3 c water / 1/4 cup water note, you may need to use less depending on how thick you like your sauce
  • 2.5 teaspoons olive oil / 1 teaspoon olive oil I used chili olive oil for an extra kick
  • 2.5  teaspoons sugar  / 1 teaspoon sugar my 0.5 was generous
  • 2/3 teaspoon lemon juice / 1/4 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 2/3 teaspoon salt / 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons (generous) teaspoon Pasta Sprinkle from Penzey's Spices / 1/2 to 2/3 generous teaspoon Pasta Sprinkle
  • 1/3 (light) teaspoon garlic powder / 1/8 (light) teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 small handfull (2-3 sprigs) fresh parsley, chopped / about the same, parsley is yummy!
Place all ingredients in sauce pan, stir, bring to a boil, and then simmer 15-20 minutes.  Cool.

What did I think?  Very yummy.  I think I will see what I can do to can this!
