Homemade Pizza Sauce Recipe
Homemade Pizza Sauce Ingredients:
- Can tomato sauce
- Can tomato paste
- Garlic powder
- Dried basil
- Dried oregano
- White sugar
Homemade Pizza Sauce Directions:
Heat a small saucepan or skill over medium heat. Add the tomato sauce and tomato paste to the pan immediately after turning the heat on.
You don’t need to pre-heat the skillet. Use a whisk or wooden spoon to blend the tomato paste into the tomatoes sauce.
Once the tomatoes are incorporated together, add the garlic powder, basil, oregano, salt, and sugar to the skillet or saucepan. Mix well.
Continue to heat over medium heat, stirring frequently until edges begin to bubble. Reduce heat to low and cover. Simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally for flavors to mix and mingle. The sauce is thicker than a jar of store-bought sauce. If you prefer the pizza sauce to be thinner, then simmer without covering the pan.
