Pizza Sauce

Our recipe is a simple sauce. We chop onions, crush garlic, grind basil, add salt and pepper. Then we cook it all together in olive oil until the onions are clear. Let it cool. Strain the liquid into tomato sauce. Stir in a cup of beer. Stir in a little more seasoning like salt and pepper. Sweeten to taste with a little sugar. Add some crushed tomatoes and voila! Pizza sauce! Ironically, I got this pizza sauce recipe from a restaurant I use to work at Walt Disney World so don't tell anybody! Sincerely, Ernest
