  • Sauce Pot
  • Immersion Blender
  • Knife and Cutting Board


  • 3 each Roma Tomatoes Chopped
  • 3 each Campari Tomatoes Chopped
  • 5 each Garlic Cloves Chopped more or less depending on your tastes
  • 1/4 medium Onion Chopped
  • 10 each Basil Leaves
  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • Dash Dried Thyme
  • 1/4 cup Dry Red Wine


  • Chop your Tomatoes, Garlic, Onion, Basil, and toss with Olive Oil. Line a pan; Tin foil or Baking mats. Cook for about 30 minutes at 350 degrees till tomatoes start to turn golden brown.
  • Once golden brown, move tomatoes and accompaniments to a Saucepan (I used my Dutch Oven Pot and it's perfect for this!), add red wine. Bring to a simmer, and reduce to a slow simmer for as long as possible; at least 30 minutes!
  • When almost ready to assemble pizza, use an immersion blender (or transfer to a food processor) to puree to smooth; or at least mostly smooth. Simmer for another 10 minutes or so to thicken the sauce.  Once thickened to your liking, top pizza dough and add your favorite toppings!
