This was my first attempt at homemade sauce and I was very happy with the ease of the recipe and the results. I used all the optional ingredients except for the onions, but found it to be just a little 'tomatoey' for our tastes, so I also added about a tbsp. of sugar and some italian seasonings, which made it perfect for us! I won't be buying pizza sauce anymore! Thanks for a great recipe!

This worked great! Well, i did doctor it up a bit adding both more onions and garlic and substititing canned chopped tomatoes for the water. I liked the addition of the Worcestershire sauce. Loved it. We make alot of homemade pizza and i hate to use the premade pizza sauce--tastes so articial. this was just like a pizza parlor sauce!!! THanks for the great recipe!

This was excellent! I will never buy pizza sauce again. This is so quick and easy to do. I put all the ingredients in. And I also added a Tbsp. of sugar, for some sweetness. I figured the kids wouldn't like the homemade sauce, but when I went back to get another slice, all the pizza was gone!

I thought it was thick enough and had a nice flavor. I made it just like it says. I'd make it again but with minor changes, until I hit it just right for me. Glad I found this.

Very good sauce for pizza. Easy & fairly quick to prepare, even with the 20 minute simmer. I enjoyed the flavor, but found it a bit too salty. I had no problems with thickness -I found it came out just thick enough. Thanks.

The sauce had a great taste and was really easy to make, but it was a little watery for our taste.

This was wonderful. I followed the recipe but left out the optional ingredients. It was easy and it did taste like pizza parlor sauce. I used it in stromboli and everyone loved them. Thanks for sharing!

I find this is a good start if you don't want to keep a ton of fresh ingredients around.

Unless you simmer for longer than 30 minutes you will end up with a lot more sauce than is needed for one pizza. Easily covered a 16" pie.

Awesome! I'll never use a store bought sauce again. I used it for a sauce with Italian sausage, peppers and onions. It is wonderful :)

Easy and great. Omitted the onion, tobasco sauce and pepper flakes. Made enough for one large pizza.
