Pizza Sauce

I was at my dad's the other week and they had just finished roasting the ingredients for the homemade pizza sauce they use for their Friday night pizzas. It smelled incredible, and I will be making this as soon as I get my own kitchen and kitchen things.

4 lb. quartered roma tomatoes
1 c. chopped onion
4 cloves garlic
2 t. salt
1 t. red pepper flakes
1 t. sugar
1/2 c. olive oil
1/2 c. fresh basil

Preheat oven to 450. Combine tomatoes, onion, garlic, salt, red pepper, and sugar in a baking casserole dish. Toss with olive oil, roast for 40 minutes, 'till tomatoes have softened. Remove from oven, mash with masher, immersion blender, or stick in a food processor, depending on preference. Stir in basil. Use or freeze.

Hey - I'm attempting to divy my tomatoes between this and salsa; about how much sauce does 4 lbs of toms make?
