Pizza Sauce

I use pizza sauce in so many recipe (and of course for pizzas) so I figured it would be best to put this basic sauce on here solo so I can just link it as needed... You can adjust the seasonings to your own preferences.

2 cups (approx 1-15 ounce can) tomato sauce
3/4 cup(approx 1-6 oz can) tomato paste
3/4 cup water
2 TB dried oregano
1 TB dried basil leaves
1 TB dried parsley
1 bay leaf
2 tsp garlic powder*
1 tsp onion powder*
1 tsp seasoning salt
1 tsp black pepper
2 tsp lemon juice
1/2 TB sugar
1 bay leaf
Combine all and bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 15-20 minuets or longer if you prefer thicker sauce. Discard bay leaf, Cool and use as needed.

This makes a good amount of sauce so I freeze it in 1/2 cup blocks(muffin tins work great , or into small ziplock bags) for easy pull out for full pizzas and in an ice cube tray for pull outs for individual pizzas

* you can omit these and use fresh onion and garlic if you like, heat 1 TB olive oil and add about 1/4 cup chopped onion and 1-2 cloves minced garlic, cook it until it is tender and fragrant, then add the remaining ingredients.....this gives it alot of extra flavor!
