• Pizza Sauce Recipe

    pizza sauce


    Just like marinara sauce, pizza sauce is SUPER easy to make. I have used this pizza sauce recipe every time that we have made our homemade pizza. (You could also use it for Pizza Stromboli or Pizza Pockets.) We have tons leftover to freeze and use for later too. I got this recipe from allrecipes.com and don’t plan to use anything else for a while.


    Pizza Sauce


    • 1 6oz can tomato paste
    • 1 1/2 cups water (I just use 1 cup)
    • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil (use a little less than this)
    • 2 cloves garlic, minced
    • salt and pepper to taste
    • 1/2 Tbls dried oregano
    • 1/2 Tbls dried basil
    • 1/2 tsp dried rosemary, crushed


    Mix together the tomato paste, water, and olive oil. Mix well. Add garlic, salt and pepper to taste, oregano, basil, and rosemary. Mix well and let stand several hours to let flavors blend. No cooking necessary, just spread on dough.

    This sauce presents as being too runny to use as a pizza sauce. I have followed your recipe as stated but fear adding it to the pizza crust. Do you have this problem?

    I’m glad you said something because I have been meaning to update the recipe. I found it to be a bit runny too. The last few times I have used it I decreased the amount of water and olive oil I used. Hope this helps!
