Adding this sweet pizza sauce to your favorite gluten-free pizza brings out the flavors of the toppings as well as the crust. If you don’t enjoy sweet sauces, make it savory simply by adding plenty of fresh herbs and reducing the agave. Use it on any the Gluten Free Pizza Crust Recipes.
An authentic Italian pizza sauce for your gluten free pizzas or breadsticks. You can even use it in cheese dips.
2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 cup minced yellow onion
2 garlic cloves, minced or grated
1 (6-ounce) can gluten-free tomato paste
1 cup water
1 tablespoon agave syrup, or less to taste
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon dried marjoram
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon dried red pepper flakes, for heat (optional)

Lower heat and add onion. Stir occasionally and sauté until transparent, about 7 minutes. Add garlic and sauté an additional minute.
Add the remaining ingredients: tomato paste, water, agave, oregano, marjoram, basil, ground black pepper, salt, and red pepper flakes; stir. Cover and simmer for about 20 minutes and until thickened. Use on gluten-free pizza crust, as a dip for soft gluten-free breadsticks, or on meatball or sausage sandwiches.
Freeze leftover sauce up to several months. Defrost in microwave on low.
This recipes makes quite a bit of pizza sauce; therefore, you can freeze it for months. I've had some in my freezer for 6 months and it is still very good.
