Pizza Sauce

This is more involved than many pizza sauces but it's worth it! All you have to add for making your pizza is cheese!

Ingredients

  • 1 pound sausage, cooked and drained
  • 1 pound ground beef, cooked and drained
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1/2 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 1 large can tomatoes
  • 1 large can tomato paste
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon sweet basil
  • 1 large can mushrooms, drained (optional)

Instructions

  1. Sauté sausage, ground beef, onions, bell pepper and garlic in oil, cooking until tender.
  2. Mix remaining ingredients together and add the sausage and ground beef. Simmer uncovered for at least 1 hour.

This sauce makes enough for 3 (12-inch) pizzas. It can be frozen.
