Home Made Pizza Sauce Recipe from Scratch
photo by Tim_John
- Ready In:
- 1hr 20mins
- Heat your oil in an 8 quart pan. Add your onions–we want to sweat them until they are transparent. This should take about six minutes. Then, add your garlic. By now, your kitchen should be filling with a delectable aroma–excellent!
- At this point, we want to add the tomato puree we made, along with the sugar, salt, and red pepper. Bring the whole mixture to a boil. Then reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, as the sauce thickens. The sauce should be pretty smooth when we finished, provided we did okay during the food-processing.
- Voila! You’ve made all-natural, excellent pizza sauce from all whole ingredients. This pizza sauce recipe can be canned or frozen, so if you have left overs after you prepare your pizza, go ahead and save some for next time.
- Please note: This can be canned or frozen. One pint is good for 2 -12 inch pizza's.

Just a side note: This does look like a delicious recipe. Contemporary USDA safety standards call for tomato products to have an acidifying agent if canned in a boiling water bath, as tomato varieties are not as acidic as they once were. This can be done with lemon juice, citric acid, or vinegar. For those not familiar with the current recommendations, I suggest visiting the web site of the National Center for Home Food Preservation at the U of GA for more information. http://nchfp.uga.edu/how/can3_tomato.html<br/>Freezing would not require the extra acid.
