"This was a nice sauce. Thanks for sharing! It was the perfect amount for our two pizzas."
"I used burgundy wine. Wonderful! It tastes better the longer it sits in the fridge."
"Very good pizza sauce. I added a 15oz can of tomato sauce and substituted 2 Tbs of minced garlic instead of crushed garlic cloves."
"Delicious! I added a little black pepper."
"This is tasty, and wonderfully easy. I halved the recipe and got enough sauce for four 9-inch pizzas (two round and two square.) I read the reviews before making the sauce and did cut back some on the sugar, but I don't think I would have minded it if I had used the full amount. I was pleased to find that half this recipe uses a 170-g can of tomato paste, which is just what I had. I would not have thought to use cumin or coriander in pizza sauce, but they combined well with the other flavors. Thank you very much for sharing this recipe with us."
"Hmm. I used the balsamic vinegar. Sauce seemed too thick and too dark. Didn't get the taste of a "normal" pizza."
"Excellente! I cut the brown sugar in half. Put the garlic cloves through a press. Carmelized the tomato paste in a hot pan and put a little bit of cinnamon in the sauce for a mysterious little kick. LOVE IT."
"We liked it. Didn't add the oil, so as to prevent extra fat & calories. Did have to add pizza sauce."
"Good flavor overall, but I will most definitely omit the brown sugar, even my kids (7&9) commented on the sweetness of the sauce. The recipe makes plenty for 4 pizzas spread thin, so after the first I added some garlic salt and fresh basil torn up to downplay the sweetness a bit...."
"This had a great flavor, but don't spread it too thickly, as it can overwhelm the flavor of the pizza. I will definitely make this again!"
"I used this recipe to make pizza sauce. I started with tomato Juice I canned from my garden. I thought it tasted really good."
"We really enjoyed this in our house! I used 1 Tblsp Red Wine, & 1 Tblsp Balsamic Vinegar for a bite. Thanks!"
"This was very easy to make, and i followed the advice of previous reveiwers and used shiraz in place of the vinegar. It might just be a personal taste preference but this was WAY WAY too sweet. If i ever make this again i will definately be omitting the brown sugar. If you follow this recipe exactly, expect a very over-poweringly sweet pizza sauce. I think it would have been great otherwise!"
"i made this sauce, and even without a couple of the ingredients (cumin, coriander) it came out great (replaced it with a bit of onion powder because that is what i had). The consistency was a bit dry, but it spread well on the pre-baked dough. I would really mince the garlic next time, it was a bit chunky for my taste. I used the vinegar and it tasted great!"
"This was very easy to make and very tasty to eat.I used wine. I think the wine makes it so special. Must be the best home made pizza sauce I have ever done. Thanks for sharing"
"I used 2 cans of stewed tomatoes, pureed ( got em on sale!) and let it5 simmer for 2 hours, in place of the paste. I used a Shiraz my husband opened last night in place of the viniger. This is the most wonderful sauce I have ever tasted!! My family went crazy over the pizza. Thanks for a great recipe!"
"Great and unusual combination of flavors. The coriander and cumin add softer notes rounding out the harshness of the raw garlic and tomato paste. I used wine, not vinegar, again for the softer flavor."
"Tasty and simple to make. This will stay in my cookbook, thanks!"
"This sauce was soooo flavorful! We really enjoyed it. I made it exactly as described but without cumin and it was wonderful! I highly recommend it. Thanks!"
