NOTES : Yield: About 3 cups. A good, low-fat pizza sauce is a must for the
healthy cook. The secret to the flavor of this, which uses very little oil,
is steeping the dried basil and oregano in wine before cooking. This simple
step draws out the flavor of the herbs -- the sauce tastes as if it had
been cooking for hours.
