Link to New York-Style Pizza Sauce recipe.
GV comments: I lived in New Jersey for over 30 years and now realize how incredible the pizza is there and in the rest of the "pizza belt" (from Philly through New Jersey to New York City and up to Boston). Nineteenth-century Italian immigrants brought pizza from Italy to the east coast, and the tradition has stuck. Elsewhere in the U.S. the tradition got compromised or diluted. Even without cheese or with vegan cheese, this sauce on a good homemade crust, with perhaps a few roasted vegetables, is incredibly delicious. This takes very little effort and is worth the time. I like to use canned San Marzano tomatoes. I use vegan butter instead of dairy butter, and it works well.
Timing: About an hour and 10 minutes (10 minutes is the active time; the rest is simmering and reducing time)
Nutrition: Mostly whole-food unprocessed (except for the oil and butter)
