Pizza Sauce This basic sauce is perfect for homemade pizza. Make in advance for a seamless pizza-making experience. 1. Heat the olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat. 2. Add the carrot and onion and cook, stirring now and then, until softened but not ground, about 8 minutes. 3. Add the tomatoes and their juice and the salt. Turn the heat to high and bring to a boil. Turn the heat to low and let the sauce simmer for 40 minutes. 4. Carefully puree in a blender until very smooth. 5. Let it cool before saucing your pizzas. This can be made up to a week ahead.
