Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Cut up your onions and start frying them in a little water (see notes below).
  2. Mince your garlic and add to the onions. Add a little more water, if necessary, to keep it from sticking.
  3. Add fennel seeds to onion and garlic.
  4. When the onions start to turn translucent and most of your water has been absorbed/evaporated, add the balsamic vinegar.
  5. Continue cooking until slightly carmelized.
  6. Add onion mixture to the can of tomatoes in a blender. Blend.
  7. Transfer the mixture to a medium-sized pot and heat on low to medium.
  8. Add the oregano, tomato paste, salt, pepper and maple syrup. Stir.
  9. Continue to stir occasionally. Once it starts to bubble/steam a little reduce the heat.
  10. It’s ready to go — top your pizza(s), bake and enjoy!
Recipe Notes

1. I use a ceramic, non-stick frying pan and so avoid using oil to fry the onions and garlic. I use a little water to keep them from sticking.
2. This recipe makes a lot of sauce, maybe enough for 8 pizzas. The dough recipe I reference makes 2 pies so you’ll get about 4 uses out of the sauce (depending on how much you like). Freeze the leftover sauce in small amounts to thaw when needed.
