March 30, 2020
Heat the oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until softened and starting to brown, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the oregano and red pepper flakes and cook for 30 seconds. Add the tomatoes, salt and pepper, and bring to a simmer. Reduce the heat and cook uncovered until slightly thickened, about 30 minutes. Add the basil and remove from heat. Use as directed in your recipe, or cool and store in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to five days or in the freezer for up to two months.
Spread the sauce over the crust and arrange the pepper¬oni on top. Add the cheese, covering part of the pepperoni to keep it from curling as it bakes. Place in the oven and bake for 8 to 10 minutes, until the cheese is melted. Remove from the oven to a cutting board and add the basil and red pepper flakes, if using. Then slice and serve.
