"It's a nice flavorful sauce, BUT....It's not a New York style pizza sauce by a long shot. This is more in line with a Spaghetti sauce. Yes, there is a difference. I was very disappointed."
"This recipe is a real find and with just minor changes is awesome! I do not like oregano so I left it out. Will decrease salt next time to 1/2 teaspoon. Used fire roasted tomatoes - my favorite. This is a very thick sauce so I added a splash of water to thin it out. Just put everything in blender if you want a smoother sauce - couldn't be easier. Still 5 stars and will become my go to recipe for pizza sauce. Thanks so much for posting!"
"REally good sauce recipe. I made this for a hamburger pizza and we loved it. Its easy to prepare, I don't think I will buy again. Thank you for sharing your recipe."
"Very good sauce....nice flavor and texture."
"I used crushed tomatoes instead of diced and it was PERFECT. All the cooking I do, I have never made my own sauce. Fabulous stuff. I did use fresh and dried oregano. This is a great recipe to make and freeze when the herbs are getting ready to die off in the garden!!! Will definitely make this again. UPDATE: My 6 yr old son wanted pizza last night so I had him make this sauce himself. He was so proud of the result!!! His was a bit pastey tasting this time -perhaps next time I will just add 1/2 the can of paste and then add more to taste. Love to keep this in the freezer for a quick pizza night. We used the blender."
"My family flipped over this sauce!"
"This is delicious! I have never thought to make my own pizza sauce, but it tastes way better than the stuff in a jar. I think it is the sugar...the slight sweetness really complements the savory cheese on the pizza."
"I normally am not a fan of sauce, but this was delicious! The only change I made was replacing thecan of diced tomatoes with a quarter cup of water, I may try wine next time, very tasty!"
"Turned out perfect! I added too much salt (my fault) but I added an 8oz can of tomato sauce and it was fine. So easy and so yummy!"
"Sauce was kind of good. I hate to compare it, but if I had to, I'd say it kind of tastes like Papa John's, but is seasoned better. Personally, I think it could use a little more garlic, but that's a personal taste. It also could just use a big pinch of sugar instead of 1 1/2 tsp, but again that's a personal taste."
"Was going to post this from Cooking Light for safekeeping as this is a very easy, delicious, low calorie sauce to whip up and tastes so much better than store bought! Thanks so much for putting this on the site!"
"A great sauce and so easy. I didn't use fresh Basil because I didn't have any. Still was good, However, I am certain it would be even better with the fresh basil. Thanks for sharing!!!"
"This sauce is excellent! We tried this as a quick sauce for calzones we made using Pillsbury dough and it turned out fantastic. The sauce is so easy to make and it was definitely the best part of the calzones. We also plan on using this sauce as a dip for cheese sticks during football season. Thank you so much for sharing this."
"Very yummy! We have tried several different preparations on tomatoes while maintaining the seasoning in the recipe and I have loved every one of them. I think I will use the same seasoning to make a marinara, a feat which I had previously sworn off as a task not worth the effort. It certainly is when it tastes like this!"
"Wow, so simple yet so good. Fresh basil makes a big difference My family said it was the best pizza sauce I have made yet, so can't get better than that. I love how its "no cook" too. I put it in the blender to make a smooth version and that works well on less saucy thin crust pizzas. Thanks!"
"I loved this sauce! It was great-tasting and so easy. I only used 3/4 tsp. kosher salt and that seemed perfect. Thanks for posting:)"
"AMAZING! I was surprised at how incredibly tasty this sauce was, and how easy it was to make. I used dry herbs, adding a touch more just because I really love the strong flavours of basil and oregano. This was PERFECT on our pizzas and it's definitely filed away for future pizza nights! Thanks!"
"This was better than any sauce I have made for pizza. Had perfect flavor and consistency. Will use this from now on . Thanks so much for the recipe!"
"I can't believe how incredibly EASY this sauce is to make. And it's the best homemade sauce I've ever tasted too! Thank you so much for this delicious recipe!"
"Oh, my gosh!!! This is the best sauce ever. I actually gave up on homemade pizzas because I always used spaghetti sauce and it never tased good. I have fallen in love with this sauce and I am back in making homemade pizzas. Thank you so much!!!"
