Homemade Pizza Sauce

Homemade Pizza Sauce

This is a favorite of mine, that I thought I had posted it already but apparently I hadn’t. My mom had asked me if I had my Homemade Pizza sauce recipe on the blog. I told her I wasn’t sure, so I looked… sure enough it wasn’t. So I thought it was due time to post it. This recipe was given to me by my friend Nichole. Do checkout her blog HERE. Shes a great wealth of amazing recipes and post.

I no longer buy pizza sauce pre-made. I always make it. Not only because it taste better, but its a lot cheaper. I think a typical can of pizza sauce already made by ragu cost almost $2.00 a jar. If not more. This recipe will make it possible to make up a batch for under a buck. If you get your tomato paste on sale (Ive seen it for like .30 cent a can), you can make this stuff for almost nothing.

Enjoy!

Below the actual recipe ill include a few photos of the process in mixing up a batch. Just for those who like that :) – I also will show you a simple lunch idea below the recipe using this sauce.


A really simple Pizza Sauce recipe the entire family will enjoy. Much cheaper to make than buying it pre-made too.
Homemade Pizza Sauce

Ingredients

  • 1 - 6 ounce can of tomato paste
  • 2 TBS EVOO - or oil of choice
  • 1 cup water
  • 3/4 tsp. sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes
  • 3/4 tsp. sucanat or brown sugar
  • 3/4 tsp. oregano
  • 3/4 tsp. basil
  • 3/4 tsp. thyme
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic

Instructions

  1. In a small pot at medium heat, stir together all the ingredients (I usually start with water and tomato paste first, then pile on the spices).
  2. Allow it to heat, stirring with a small whisk.
  3. Once blended together well, allow to simmer for a few moments (be sure to cover it, otherwise it pops up and splatters everywhere).
  4. After a few minutes you can store it in a mason jar in the fridge and use as you please.
  5. Keeps for about a week.

Here is what my sauce mixture looks like as I prep it. Not the most appealing looking stuff pre-mix :) – but it sure turns out yummy.

You will never buy pre-made pizza sauce again. This recipe is so easy and so good!

Once my sauce is made. I either use it on a home made pizza dough. OR if I am feeling lazy and dont want to bother making up dough… allowing it to rise, etc..etc… I just use FLAT bread instead. I got this flat bread from Aldi. Their options for flat bread are great and it taste delicious.

So what I do is put a few dollops of the sauce onto the flat bread.

I use the back of a spoon to spread out the sauce.

I then sprinkle the flat bread with shredded cheese.

I then bake it at 375 for about 8-10 minutes? Or until crispy.

A tip for baking these. You will want to bake them on a WIRE rack. If you put these on a baking sheet they dont crisp up right. So having them on a wire rack is best. My wire racks I actually pulled out of my toaster oven :) – made it easier for me to pull them out of the bigger oven when they were done.

My kids love these and always ask for more.

If you enjoy this recipe, don’t forget to share the love and give it a pin ;-)
