Thank goodness I forgot to buy sauce at the store and had to go looking for a recipe here...I will never buy pizza sauce again! Added a can of Italian-Style diced tomatoes instead of water and threw everything in food processor. Had some leftover Tastefully Simple beer bread (Italian style) and used extra sauce for dipping...absolutely fantastic!

This was really simple and good. I used garlic paste instead of minced garlic, and it came out perfect.

Excellent and easy recipe, made even better through Galley Devil's suggestions (i.e. adding some salt and sugar and a bit of water to Hunt's sauce, on top of all other ingredients).

Very quick and easy. Substituted roasted tomatoes for the paste and threw everything in the food processor. Had a good flavor and worked well with the calzones. I let it simmer on low to release the flavors for 20-30 minutes.

I forgot to get jar pizza sauce at the grocery the other night and had all the ingredients on hand for this recipe. It was awesome and made our pizza taste even more like a take-out pizza. I will probably never buy jar sauce again. Thank you for posting this recipe!

Very quick, easy and tasty. But make sure you only use 1-1 and 1/2 tablespoons of garlic! Didn't find it needed salt--the basil/oregano/parsley is sufficient. I also recommend cutting back on the water, like earlier reviewers have mentioned, for a thicker sauce.

The key is adding the italian seasonings. I added oregano, basil, marjoram, and thyme. Very quick and easy! I reduced the water just a bit to make the sauce thicker.

Yummy! This pizza sauce was perfect for making pizza bagels for my kids. It was just the right combination of tomato and spices. Plus, none of the extra salt that is added to the jarred sauce. And it was super easy to make. A win-win!
