Canning Pizza or Spaghetti Sauce from Fresh Tomatoes

Canning Pizza or Spaghetti Sauce from Fresh Tomatoes
  • 20 pounds fresh Roma tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cups chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup red wine (optional)
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped celery (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh basil
  • 2 tablespoons chopped red sweet pepper
  • 2 teaspoons salt (optional)
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper


  1. Fill a large pot with water; bring to a boil. Fill a bowl with ice water. Place tomatoes into the boiling water, working in batches, 30 to 45 seconds. Remove from the boiling water; plunge into ice water. Peel off tomato skins; cut in half. Remove the seeds using your finger or a spoon. Place in a colander to drain.
  2. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; place onion into the skillet. Cook and stir until the onions become translucent, about 5 minutes.
  3. Combine tomatoes, onion, lemon juice, red wine, garlic, celery, basil, red sweet pepper, salt, bay leaves, and ground black pepper in a large pot over medium heat; cook and stir over until tomatoes break down and sauce thickens, about 10 minutes.
  4. Sterilize 8 pint-size jars and lids in boiling water for at least 5 minutes. Pack tomato sauce into hot, sterilized jars, filling to within 1/4 inch of the top. Top with clean lids and screw on rings.
  5. Fill water bath canner with water according to manufacturer's instructions. Bring to a boil and lower jars into the boiling water using a holder. Pour in more boiling water if necessary to bring the water level to at least 1 inch above the tops of the jars. Process for 35 minutes for pints.
  6. Remove the jars from the water bath canner and place onto a cloth-covered or wood surface, several inches apart, until cool, 8 hours to overnight. Press the top of each lid with a finger, ensuring that the seal is tight (lid does not move up or down at all). Store in a cool, dark area.
