Pizza Sauce

I keep this Induction friendly pizza sauce made up and frozen at the ready for a variety of uses.  This is handy for when I just need that 1/4 cup or 1/2 cup for a pizza or some other Italian recipe.  With the addition of a little browned ground beef, it would be a nice spaghetti sauce; as written, it makes a nice pizza sauce or Chicken Parmesan sauce.   NOTE: nutritional info does NOT include optional spices, but they would add very little to the totals.


2 T. olive oil
1/4 c. ch. onion
1/4 c. ch. celery
1/4 c. ch. green pepper
2 T. parsley
1 clove minced garlic
1 8 oz can tomato sauce
1 8 oz can water
1/2 tsp. oregano
dash salt & pepper

dash cayenne
dash dried basil (or 1 leaf fresh)
dash dried rosemary(or few leaves fresh)
dash fennel seed


Saute the vegetables in the oil in a small no-stick pot. Add tomato sauce and water, minced garlic and parsley. Add oregano & seasonings.
Simmer on lowest heat covered with lid about 30 minutes. Stir occasionally.
