Easy Pizza Sauce

Pizza Sauce
Amazingly versatile, this all-purpose tomato sauce works well for all kinds of pizzas.Johnny Autry

This quick marinara sauce recipe from Peter Reinhart's Perfect Pan Pizza can be used on nearly any type of pizza, such as this Classic Detroit-Style Pizza. It calls for dried herbs, but if you prefer to use fresh, leave them out of the sauce and sprinkle over the pizza as soon as it comes out of the oven. For a less assertive garlic flavor, omit the granulated garlic and lightly sauté 8 pressed garlic cloves in olive oil, then drizzle the garlic oil over the finished pizza.
