A good pizza sauce really adds that extra touch to a pizza. So if you are going to the trouble of making pizza at home, why not make the sauce too?
I have made many different versions of pizza sauce, however my family prefers the uncomplicated recipes.
Homemade pizza is somewhat of an undertaking, so spending a lot of time on the sauce in unrealistic in my opinion. I need something that is quick to put together and tastes great.
So, after a lot of experimenting I finally found a truly easy pizza sauce with no cooking required. You just combine all the ingredients and stir; it can’t get much easier than that.
I find this recipe makes enough sauce for 2-3 pizzas, but it will depend on how much sauce you like on your pizza. Since I typically bake only one pizza at a time I freeze the leftover sauce to use another time.
This is pretty basic sauce that you could adjust to your family’s taste. It’s also great with bread sticks.
Easy Pizza Sauce
I don’t add pepper flakes, but that would be a great addition. If you don’t want to add fresh garlic you could always substitute 1-2 tsp of dried garlic or garlic powder.
- 1 (15 ounce) can tomato sauce
- 1 (6 ounce) can tomato paste
- 2 tsp dried oregano
- 2 tsp dried basil
- 1 tsp paprika
- 1/2 tsp onion powder
- 1/2 tsp sugar
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- In a medium bowl combine all ingredients and stir until smooth.
