This simple and delicious Pizza Sauce is made with basic pantry ingredients and ready to use in just 5 minutes! I’m confidant you’ll never use canned sauce again!

I have so many favorite homemade pizza recipes that this sauce would pair great with, but it’s truly fantastic served on my Perfect Pizza Dough or Wheat Pizza Crust.

Making homemade pizza is one of my favorite childhood memories!  My mom used to make a double batch of homemade pizza dough and let my friends and I pick out all our own pizza toppings.  I am partial towards BBQ Chicken Pizza but I love a good supreme pizza, loaded with everything!  If you like white sauce on our pizza, try this Garlic-Ranch Chicken Pizza or Chicken Alfredo Pizza.

The ingredients for homemade pizza sauce including diced tomatoes, tomato paste, spices and olive oil.

How to make your own pizza sauce:

  • In a food processor combine diced tomatoes, tomato paste, olive oil, sugar, and spices and blend until smooth. Spread on pizza dough, or refrigerate for up to one week.

  1. Nostra Thomas, I omitted the sugar and used a tsp of stevia instead. It was absolutely perfect and sugar free. For pizza dough, I used a standard recipe but added a Tbs of White Vinegar. A great snap to the whole pizza. Received Mega comments from friends in the gourmet group.

  2. 5 stars
    Very good!! I made this in a pinch after realizing I was completely out of my stock of frozen pizza sauce and only had pantry ingredients. This was great and I’ll definitely make it again because it was tasty and SO easy!
