Rao's almost marinara sauce

I have always loved their sauce and this is my attempt at making my own!

Ingredients  2 oz of salt pork sliced into slim slices  2 30 oz cans of crushed tomatoes (I opted for the canned peeled Rao’s brand tomatoes with basil added because I knew the whole tomatoes would cook down  0.25 cup of olive oil  0.5 onion diced  3-5 garlic cloves, diced  tbls of Italian Seasoning  Basil (6 leaves) diced - optional

My comments: I plan on using for pizza so it was important the whole tomatoes cooked down. I was gonna make stuffed shells, but I didn’t
