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!

Good recipe to use in a pinch. I used some last night and the rest today. I think I like today's better because the flavors had a chance to blend.

This was good. I feel like I'm still looking for the perfect homemade sauce though. For me, there is a still-undefineable difference between a good restaurant sauce and what I can do at home. I think I like a no-cook sauce like this best though. Maybe I'll keep tweaking it. Thanks for sharing this recipe, Sugarpea!

This is a super tasting and super easy sauce! The only thing I did different was to add 2 cloves of minced garlic just because I love the flavor. This will be my #1 recipe for pizza sauce from now on! Thanks sugarpea!

I canned a HUGE amount of tomatoes this past summer. A lot of it was made into an unseasoned, pizza sauce. This recipe was my missing link to homemade pizza success! Not cooking the sauce is the secret that makes our pizza wonderful! Nick Stellino is a favorite anyway, so loving this sauce was a natural for us.

This is a simple and tasty sauce. I used garlic powder instead of salt. Followed the recipe otherwise. I let it sit for a few hours before using to let the flavors develope. I loved that it didn't take any time at all to put together. I'm looking forward to adding some crushed red pepper and olive oil next time. Thanks so much for posting this recipe.

I was worried the taste of this sauce would be too intense with all the paste, but it wasn't at all! I used jar spaghetti sauce and therefore left out the seasonings since the sauce was well seasoned. So good- used in my deep dish and it helped the pizza not get so watery. Served some on the side for dipping- delish!
