"I have tried so many different sauce recipes out there. From America's Test Kitchen to Emeril to Cooking Light. They all were missing something and I had to keep looking. Well, as of today, my search is over! This recipe is perfect in taste and consistency. I double the batch and freeze it or use as dip for breadsticks. It is truly as good as storebought. Oh, it's also great with 1/4 tsp onion powder."
"I really liked this sauce......flavorful but not too spicey. I added some onion powder to the recipe as I happen to like onion powder. The sauce was just right as far as not too acidic tasting or not too sweet. My finished pizza got a lot of compliments especially on the sauce."
"I don't think it's quite Papa John's, however it is very good, I didn't even think of my usual "this isn't right" thoughts about the sauce like always, it was very much I have to have more!"
"We love this sauce! It's our favorite new discovery! I've used crushed tomatoes, which makes it pretty thick but still works in a pinch. Thanks for posting it."
"Very tasty!! This is becoming my staple pizza sauce recipe. I've been using canned, diced tomatoes that I puree since I seem to have them on hand more often, and it works just fine. Very easy to make while waiting for pizza dough to rise. Can't recommend this recipe enough."
"I made this with Almost Like Papa John's Pizza Dough (#177072) and was shocked how fast my pizza's got eaten. Normally we only need 2 pizzas and still have leftovers. I doubled the recipe and made 3 large pizza's, they were gone! My mom said it was the first time in a long time pizza didn't give her heart burn. I will definitly make again!"
"Not a bad recipe, i made a few lil changes that everyone seems to like, give it a try. I omitted the salt and used 3 beef boulin cubes, add 1 tsp onion powder, 1 TBL Worcestershire sauce and I do like a lil more spice so I added 1 TBL red peppers which you don't have too."
"I live in Louisville KY, nealry in the same neighborhood as John Schnatter and I think he would be impressed."
"Good sauce. Great recipie to have on hand. I generally have all those things in my pantry."
"LOVED this sauce! I've tried several on Zaar but this is finally THE ONE. I omitted the salt as we put sausage on the pizza and it was plenty salty without adding any to the sauce. My store doesn't carry tomatoe puree, so I used a small can of tomato sauce and half a small can of tomato paste. Just the right amount of sauce for a large pizza!"
"I've used this recipe several times now and we really like it! As suggested by others I added a bit of onion powder and a sprinkle of red pepper flakes. I'm not sure I would say it's just like papa johns but it's really good if you like that style of pizza sauce!"
"Better than store bought, but a little bit too sweet for my tastes."
"Have never made pizza sauce before. This was easy and tasted great"
"Great tasting sauce; this is my staple for Friday Pizza Night at our house."
"Nice tomato flavor. I like a spicier sauce, so I'll keep looking. Very good for a traditional sauce and so much better than store bought."
"This was good! Can't vouch for the authenticity (don't remember the last time I had Papa John's) but it was a good alternative to just using plain old tomato sauce on my pizza. It was simple, very tasty, and a highly rated recipe that didn't call for parmesian cheese in the recipe. I will use this again."
"This sauce was incredible. I thought it was good just in the pan but when cooked on the pizza it is nice and tangy."
"Great sauce! This is our favorite. Thanks for posting."
