It's a nice flavorful sauce, BUT....It's not a New York style pizza sauce by a long shot. This is more in line with a Spaghetti sauce. Yes, there is a difference. I was very disappointed.

This recipe is a real find and with just minor changes is awesome! I do not like oregano so I left it out. Will decrease salt next time to 1/2 teaspoon. Used fire roasted tomatoes - my favorite. This is a very thick sauce so I added a splash of water to thin it out. Just put everything in blender if you want a smoother sauce - couldn't be easier. Still 5 stars and will become my go to recipe for pizza sauce. Thanks so much for posting!

We loved this sauce! So flavorful and I can't believe how easy it was to mix up. My only change for next time will be to use about half the amount of salt called for. Thanks so much for the great keeper recipe!

I used crushed tomatoes instead of diced and it was PERFECT. All the cooking I do, I have never made my own sauce. Fabulous stuff. I did use fresh and dried oregano. This is a great recipe to make and freeze when the herbs are getting ready to die off in the garden!!! Will definitely make this again. UPDATE: My 6 yr old son wanted pizza last night so I had him make this sauce himself. He was so proud of the result!!! His was a bit pastey tasting this time -perhaps next time I will just add 1/2 the can of paste and then add more to taste. Love to keep this in the freezer for a quick pizza night. We used the blender.

This is delicious! I have never thought to make my own pizza sauce, but it tastes way better than the stuff in a jar. I think it is the sugar...the slight sweetness really complements the savory cheese on the pizza.

I normally am not a fan of sauce, but this was delicious! The only change I made was replacing thecan of diced tomatoes with a quarter cup of water, I may try wine next time, very tasty!
