Used this recipe tonight for our homemade pizza and this sauce was fantastic! Very easy to make. I will never use another store bought pizza sauce. This tastes way better. I used canned tomatoes because that was all that I had on hand and it worked perfectly. Thank you MizzNezz, we all loved it!
Thanks MizzNezz for sharing and posting. We used this to make homemade pizza sauce and it was delicious. It is a chunky sauce to be sure but the flavor is great. One of my family members thought it would be great on pasta also. Thanks. Enjoy! ChefDLH
Very tasty sauce. The use of fresh tomatoes and fresh herbs (i use the ones in my garden) really gives it a rich flavor. I did add 3 teaspoons of unwashed sugar to offset the acidity of the sauce. This first time I made this sauce it was chunky and i really thought it added to the pizza. However, my dear family does not like chunky sauce that much. So the next batch, I used a small immersion blender and made the sauce smooth. This is how i serve it now. Great recipe!
This was pretty good! I added 1 tsp brown sugar and 6-7 shakes red pepper flakes. I also thought the sauce was a little thick for our taste so next time maybe I'll use a little extra tomato sauce. I froze half of the sauce and have used it since and it thawed nicely! Thanks
Excellent sauce !! This was my first experience making homemade pizza and I wanted to make everything from scratch!! My DH said that he was very impressed with the outcome. This kids loved it too.
I have no idea why this has gotten soo many stars. The proportions are obviously off. People change the recipe and then vote on that also. I CANNOT STAND that. Ratings should be on the recipe as-is. As-is, there is a HUGE amount of garlic and I don't think right and can be overpowering. The sauce is very thick, which is fine, but again, too much herbs, especially Oregano which is dominant. 1-2T of Basil and 1/2t Oregano would have been enough. Finally, it's too salty. The salt should have been 1/2t or less. You may want to add a smigin of water to thin slightly also, but up to you. The flavor was ok, but not "great". For this I would have rated it at 3 stars, but due to being too salty and a lot of garlic and herbs, I'll give it 2-1/2 star MAX.
This is a wonderful pizza sauce recipe. Love the chunks of fresh tomato!
I love this pizza sauce! I made a double batch to put some in the freezer. We have tomatoes from our garden so they add an extra good flavor. In pizza sauce I've made previously I didn't care for the seeds from the tomatoes so I took most of them out this time. Since a lot of the juice also is removed when you do that, I added four ounces of water so it had some room to cook down and blend the flavors in the half hour of simmering. Whenever I try a new recipe I cut back on the salt, today I used a quarter less salt and don't even miss it. Thanks for a great recipe.
My husband and I love this pizza sauce! It's so easy to make (throw everything in a pot and cook, basically). I usually use canned tomatoes (it's easier and quicker than chopping whole tomatoes) and drain some of the liquid out. I use an immersion blender to make it smooth like pizza sauce you get at a store or on take out pizza (not much of a 'chunky' fan). I make a double batch of this sauce, then freeze it in serving size portions. Then when we make pizza, I thaw out a portion and use it. It freezes/thaws really well, too.
