 Ingredients List

  • 3 tb Olive oil
  • 1/2 c Onion -- finely chop
  • 1/2 c Celery -- finely chop
  • 1/2 c Green or red bell pepper --
  • Finely chop
  • 1/4 ts Thyme
  • 1/4 ts Basil
  • 1 Bay leaf
  • Salt and pepper -- to taste
  • 1/2 ts Cayenne
  • 14 oz Can whole tomatoes
  • 3 oz Tomato paste
  • Tabasco sauce -- to taste
  • Grated rind and juice from
  • 1/2 Lemon
  • 2 tb Parsley fresh -- chopped


Heat the olive oil in a medium saucepan and saute the onions, celery, and
red or green bell pepper over medium heat until soft. Crumble in the
spices, stirring for another minute. Add the tomatoes, tomato paste, lemon
juice and rind, cover and simmer on low for about 30 minutes. After 30
minutes, check the seasoning and add the hot sauce, to taste. Stir in the
fresh parsley. Variations: This makes an extremely thick sauce. I had to
add about 1/2 cup water to the sauce. Yields approximately 3 1/4 cups of
sauce. Great with shrimp used as the topping for the pizza, esp. if the
shrimp is boiled in crab boil, and lightly sprinkled with Creole seasoning.
I add the shrimp the last 3-4 minutes to the top of the pizza. Source:Pizza
