Susan’s Sweet Pizza Sauce

Sweet Pizza Sauce
Welcome to Susan’s Cooking School. Today we’re making the sweet pizza sauce that’s featured
in my Pizza For Two video. Let’s begin:
Pour 2 tablespoons of olive oil into a small sauce pan, set over medium heat.
When the oil is hot enough to sizzle a little bit of onion, add ¾ of a cup of diced onion.
Cook the onions in the oil until they are lightly browned, stirring occasionally. Adjust
the heat if necessary. Add 2 cloves of garlic, crushed and a half
of a teaspoon each of dried basil and oregano. Stir and cook for about one minute. Be careful
not to burn the garlic! Add a 6 oz. can of tomato paste, 1 cup of
water, and 1 teaspoon of brown sugar. Stir smooth and bring to a simmer. Stir often and
adjust heat if necessary, to prevent burning. Gently cook for about 5 minutes more and season
to taste with salt and pepper. Your sweet pizza sauce can be used right away
on your favorite pizza dough (hope it’s my pizza dough) or you can refrigerate it until needed. It
freezes very well and makes a great sauce for non-pizza uses also!

    My wife and I aren't having added sugars.. Can I omit the brown sugar or maybe substitute with date paste?

  6. luis vital says:

    Date paste worked great! Your whole wheat dough was fantastic as well! Thanks for the videos!

    I took this recipe for a spin for an experimental pizza I made that was intended as a ridiculously hot pizza. After making the sauce, I blended habanero peppers and ghost pepper oil extract into it and then sprinkled the pizza (which was topped with pepperoni, salami, bacon bits and mushrooms) with Trinidad Moruga Scorpion powder.

    Final verdict: Not a pizza for the feint of heart at all, but explosively delicious at the same time…many thanks for the awesome recipe, Susan!

    No tomato paste here in my country. Can I use fresh tomatoes after reducing it?

    The pizza shop down the road from me has a sweet sauce. I love it. It's amazing.

    Too many onions and you can delete the sugar ! The pizza dough has enough carbs in it to convert the taste to some sweetness !
