  • 2 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1/2 cup, chopped Onions
  • 1 clove Garlic, raw
  • 4 tbsp Tomato Paste
  • 1 tsp, leaves Basil (Dried)
  • 3/4 tsp, leaves Oregano
  • 1/2 tsp Fennel Seed
  • 1 teaspoon SweetLeaf Stevia Sweetener (with inulin)
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Black Pepper
  • 1/4 tsp Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
  • 28 oz Crushed Tomatoes (Canned)


  1. In a medium sauce pan heat the olive oil over medium heat.  Crush the garlic and add it to the pan along with the yellow onions.  Sauté until translucent; about 4 minutes  
  2. Add the tomato paste, basil, oregano, fennel, granular sugar substitute, salt, black pepper and chili flakes (optional).  Cook while stiring for 1-2 minutes.    
  3. Add crushed tomatoes and continue to cook over medium heat until heated through; 3 minutes.  Turn heat to low and simmer for 10-15 minutes until thick.  Remove from heat and use immediately or cool to room temperature and place into an air tight storage container in the refreigerator for up to one week or freeze for up to 1 month.  Makes about 3 cups, enough for 2 pizzas or 16 slices.  Each serving is about 3 Tbsp (nutritionals reflect 1 serving).  If it is too sweet add a dash of lemon juice to balance flavors.
