  • 1 pound carrots scrubbed well
  • 1 medium green pepper seeded and chopped
  • 1 medium red onion chopped
  • extra light olive oil or avocado oil
  • kosher salt
  • 4 cloves garlic chopped
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
  • 3/4 teaspoon dried basil
  • 3/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 tablespoon sherry wine
  • water 3/4 to 1 or as needed to thin sauce


  • Preheat your oven to 450°. Place carrots and 1-1/2 tablespoon oil on one rimmed, sheet pan and the peppers and onions plus 2 tablespoons of oil on a second pan. Season both pans with a generous pinch or two of salt.
  • Roast both sheet pans of vegetables for 30 minutes, rotating the pans halfway until tender and caramelized.
  • Meanwhile, add 1 teaspoon of oil to a small skillet and heat over medium-low. Add garlic and herbs, cooking for 1-2 minutes. Pour in 1 tablespoon Sherry wine and cook until reduced by 90%. Remove the skillet off of the heat and set to the side.
  • Place roasted vegetables and garlic and herb mixture into food processor. Pulse until the vegetables are finely chopped. Reserve 1/3 cup of chopped vegetables before adding 1 teaspoon salt and 3/4 to 1 cup water and processing until smooth.
  • Transfer pureed vegetables to a bowl and mix in the reserved chopped vegetables.
  • Use immediately on your favorite pizza or let cool and store in an airtight container for 1 to 2 weeks or freeze for 2 - 3 months.
