Ultimate Pizza Sauce

Ultimate Pizza Sauce created by Jonathan Melendez

This pizza sauce recipe was given to me as a wedding present, written on the inside cover of a pizza cookbook. It is thick, saucy, spicy and delicious. I'll never use anything else on my homemade pizzas. I like to double or triple it and put it in Ziploc bags in my freezer.

    I love this sauce. It’s chunky, though. I like my pizza sauce to be smooth. I made it tonight. I followed the recipe, except I puréed it in the pan with a stick blender before I added the fennel seed. My family loved it that way. The flavor is great whether you purée it or not.

    This sauce is very good. We didn't have fennel seeds so I substitute with star anise.

    I had everything on hand to make this sauce and it came together rather quickly! It's got great flavor and really upgraded my pizza! I highly recommend it to everyone!
