From the Rift’s eternal fire
Came the Mage’s deep desire
A sauce more dark; more wild than he
And to his arcane heart, a key
What can I say? The partner really liked it!
1 (15 oz) can plain tomato sauce
1 (6 oz) can tomato paste
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup minced garlic
6 cubes frozen chopped basil (like these), or equivalent (much less if you use dried)
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
1/2 tsp salt; more to taste
Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan, and heat on low until well-blended and fragrant, stirring often. Add a little more salt if you like.
Use with your favorite pizza recipe! I recommend something with caramelized onions and pepperoni 🙂 . A night or two in the fridge before/after use is probably okay, too.
