I developed this sauce for my fiance who is allergic to onions. We both love pizza and red sauce for pasta but neither of us wanted to deal with the drowsiness that comes with taking allergy meds. This receipe is good for (2) large pizzas or a few rounds of pasta. I’m used to cooking for a large family, so I haven’t quite got the knack for cooking small.


  1. 1Empty crushed tomatoes into medium saucepan. If using whole drain and crush before hand. Cook on medium heat.
  2. 2Stir in spices (and cheese if desired) and continue to cook, uncovered, for 10-20 minutes. Keep stirring so the dauce doesn’t scorch.
  3. 3The sauce tends to be a little thick. If you prefer it to be thin, just add water till you get the desired consistency. This sauce should keep for about two weeks in a sealed container in the refridgerator.
