Pizza Sauce

25-28 Tomatoes
2 large onions, minced
4 garlic cloves, minced
3 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp black pepper
1 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp parsley, chopped
1 tbsp oregano
1 tbsp basil
1 tsp rosemary
1 tsp celery seeds
2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp summer savory

Peel and pure tomatoes

Mince the onion and garlic

Put olive oil in deep pan and saute the onions and garlic until transparent. Add tomato puree and the rest of the ingredients; stir well to blend. Cook on low until mixture is reduced to 1/2 stirring occasionally. This will take 2-3 hrs.

When sauce done and nicely thickened, ladle into pint size jars, clean the rims of jars, and seal. Process 25 mins in water bath.

** Now the above is the original recipe.... I however can NEVER seem to follow a recipe exactly.

Here are my changes.....
1/4 cup more onions
1 more garlic clove
1 cup green peppers, diced fine
1 more tsp summer savory
1 tsp tastefully simple mama mia marinara spice (really liked the flavor of this so I added this to my sauce)

We actually use this more for a dipping sauce for cheese sticks and breadsticks than we do actual pizza sauce.
