Super-Easy but Tasty Pizza Sauce

READY IN: 7mins
Recipe by kp3ft

Simple ingredients from a minimalist approach. I've tried experimenting with other spices, etc. to get that "pizzeria taste", but this easy recipe surprisingly turned out the best by far. Does it have that "pizzeria taste"? I'm not sure, but we prefer this homemade recipe to take-out pizza.

This was not bad. It was easy to put together, and made just enough sauce for our supper. However, I think I need to add more seasoning next time. It wasn't very highly flavored.

  1. Mix well all the ingredients over heat. It's not necessary to continue heating, just get it hot enough to help the ingredients mix, then remove heat (overheating tomatoes causes a chemical change and ruins the taste).
  2. Just add more water for thinner sauce if preferred. Experiment with ingredient amounts for taste; I personally like a lot of oregano which makes all the difference.
  3. Makes enough to cover one 16" pizza.
