Recipe Notes

1. I use minced garlic in olive oil that you can buy in a small jar but you can use fresh garlic, pressed. Start with two teaspoons (or cloves) and taste the sauce. If you want even more garlic flavor, add another teaspoon or clove. 2. This recipe can be divided in half if you want to use the sauce only for pizza night. 3. I use one cup of sauce per 12" pizza. We always make two pizzas for pizza night.
