Dinner: Pizza (it is Pi Day, after all)… made a sauce in the pressure cooker that was really good. Also saute’d some onions, along with red peppers, frozen corn, and prosciutto made for a good pie.

Here’s the sauce recipe:
Pressure Cooker Pizza Sauce

Olive oil
1/2 onion, chopped
1 1/2 tsp dried oregano
1 1/2 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
5 cloves garlic
2 14 oz cans tomatoes
1 tsp salt
2 tsp sugar

Heat olive oil until very hot in pressure cooker, then add onion, basic, oregano, and pepper flakes. Saute 5 minutes then add the garlic for another minute.
Add one can of tomatoes, then drain some juice out of the other can before adding. Toss in the salt and sugar, drop the lid on the pressure cooker, bring it up to pressure and cook for 15 minutes. Depressurize however you like, open lid and hit the stuff with a stick blender. If it’s watery, you could let it simmer some more.
This makes enough for 2 pizzas.
