It doesn't get any easier than this. This is Nick's basic pizza sauce and the base for Pizza Margherita. Use the best quality tomato sauce and paste available. Normally I like to make this kind of thing starting with fresh tomatoes, but of course, it has to be summer and you have to get your hands on the tomatoes. I promise, you can't get this flavor from hot house tomatoes. Freeze what you don't need or use it to start spaghetti sauce.
- 1 cup tomato sauce
- 1⁄2 cup tomato paste
- 1⁄4 teaspoon garlic salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon oregano
- 3⁄4 tablespoon dried basil
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- Place all ingredients in food processor and pulse 10 times.
This is really good and so easy to make. I used an 8 oz. can of sauce and a 6 oz can of paste. I also used garlic powder instead of salt, and cut the sugar in half. Made the perfect amount for 2 homemade pizzas.
What an awesome recipe! Thank you so much for sharing! My DH and kids (2 & 4) all loved it. I read all the reviews and added the 1T olive oil, dash of pepper, dash of red pepper, and some shredded parmesan cheese. I also used garlic powder and a dash of salt, but I think next time I'll leave the salt out. I also used 6oz of tomato paste, as we like our sauces a bit thicker (and it was the size of the can lol). It's a big hit here!
Since the day I watched Nick Stellino prepare this pizza sauce on a PBS cooking program, I've happily been using his recipe. This sauce, which I use to make a lot of homemade pizza and calzones, has become a staple in my kitchen. I can't even remember the last time I bought canned pizza sauce!
