Mama Mingz Pizza Sauce~Black Folks Eating Right

My son loves pizza and that was the one foods he begged me to allow him to eat with a plant based diet.

Why not, 
I can find a low calorie recipe sauce for pizza I already have a bread maker that makes pizza dough. I am more than half way there.

And I did.
And he loves it. 

The sauce is pretty good, if I don't say so my self.

(say it in your best Italian accent)

"MAMA Mingz Pizza Sauce"

1 tablespoon Olive Oil
1/2 cup minced  Sweet White Onion
2 cloves Garlic, pressed through a garlic press
2 tablespoons minced Sun-dried Tomatoes 
{ packed in olive oil}
2 teaspoons Dried Oregano
1-1/2 teaspoon Dried Basil
1/4 cup White Wine (like a Chardonnay)
1 {6 ounce} can of Tomato Paste
1 cup Water
2 pinches of Kosher Salt
1/4 teaspoon Black Pepper

 Heat a large {10 inch} skillet over moderate heat. Add in olive oil and when hot, add in the minced onion and garlic. Stir until soft.
Now add in the minced sun-dried tomatoes, dried oregano and basil and stir. The oil and the heat of the pan will soften up the dried herbs.
Pour in the 4 tablespoons of white wine and let that simmer until reduced by half.
Add in the entire can {6 ounces} of tomato paste and the cup of water. Switch over to a wire whisk and stir until combined. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer the sauce for 15 minutes before seasoning with kosher salt and black pepper.

Pour in to a jar to cool and store in the fridge for a week, or use it tonight.
