Almost Aurelio's Pizza and Pasta Sauce
"Joe Aurelio opened his first restaurant in Homewood, Illinois, in 1959. Since then, his sauce recipe has been a closely guarded secret. This is my attempt to recreate this sauce. Not everyone agrees that beer was used in the sauce, but I believe that beer creates the flavor closest to the original. Thanks to HandsomeG and Gaga at pizzamaking.com for some clues that led to the creation of this recipe. This makes about 5 cups, enough for two pizzas. This is also good served over pasta. Note: this may or may not be vegetarian, depending on how the beer you use is made. Some beers are clarified with isinglass, which comes from fish."
