Deep-Dish Pizza Sauce
With a hearty red sauce this good, you’ll be glad there’s a little extra. For deep-dish pizza you want to avoid too much moisture. That’s why it’s essential to cook this sauce down — to eliminate excess liquid. You can also make the sauce ahead and freeze it. How nice is that?!
Pulse tomatoes in a food processor until nearly smooth but still a little chunky, 10–12 pulses.
Stir in tomato paste, garlic, and oregano; cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add processed tomatoes and sugar; heat to a simmer and cook until reduced to 2 cups, about 1 hour. Off heat, stir in basil; season sauce with salt and pepper flakes. Let sauce cool before using.
