Pizza sauce

The other night I wanted to make pizza (I had even just bought cheese for it!) but all the stores were closed and we were out of sauce.  I didn't know what to do, but then had the brilliant idea to make it out of our farm tomatoes.  I mashed them, strained the juice into a pot, flavored it with salt, sugar and the dried basil from our farm and then simmered it until it thickened.  It was so gratifying to know that the entire sauce was from my own hands.  Sure, not the salt and sugar, but none of the colonial women produced those either.  They traded for it.  Anyway, the sauce turned out great.  Next year I'll do much more.
