Ingredients

  • 1/4

    cup extra-virgin olive oil

  • 2

    cloves garlic, minced

  • 12

    plum(Roma tomatoes, peeled, seeded and chopped, or 1 can(28 oz's) plum roma tomatoes, chopped, with their juices

  • 8

    large fresh basil leaves, coarsely chopped

  • salt and fresh ground pepper to taste

Directions

In a large frying pan over med. heat, warm the oil. Add the garlic and saute for a few seconds just until fragrant. Add the tomatoes and cook stirring frequently, util they begin to break down and form a sauce, about 10 minutes. Add the basil, season to taste with salt and pepper and raise the heat to medium-high. Cook, stirring occasionally, until sauce thickens and is no longer watery, 15-20 min. Use immediately, ot transfer to a container with a tight fitting lid and refrigerate for up to 2 days. Makes just enough for a 12" pizza. I use this with rushed pizza dough.
