Step 5: Use or Store

Keep in mind that the flavors in the sauce will develop as they have a chance to blend (much like a gazpacho). The garlic and oregano will be much more pronounced after 12 hours. However, cooking the sauce on pizza will also enhance the flavors, so the sauce can be used immediately. This recipe will yield enough for one large or 2 to 3 smaller pizzas.
