Homemade Pizza Sauce Recipe
Get your DIY pants on and let's make the easiest pizza sauce ever. There is no better time to share this recipe than now. Because your pizza night or should I say pizza day just got better.
This sauce is better than store-bought, and you would be saying goodbye to it forever after trying this recipe. You would also be saving on money when you make yours at home from scratch, you do not have to worry about any jargons on the label that you can’t pronounce.
You wouldn’t believe how easy and quick this homemade sauce is, it is my go-to sauce on a pizza night especially when time is of the essence. Otherwise, you would find me making this quick tomato sauce.
This authentic easy pizza sauce recipe uses a handful of pantry staple ingredients. I didn’t use olive oil in this recipe to keep it healthy. Not really, just doing a check and balance by saving the extra calories for the cheese on my pizza. We love cheesy pizza in my household.
I get my daughter involved whenever I am making this recipe as it involves no cooking and it is a fun way to get her cooking with me in the kitchen. I lay out the ingredients and allow her to mix away. After all, pizza is one of her favourites and it is only fair she knows how it is made.
I do not limit this sauce for pizza recipes alone, you would also find me using it in my pasta dishes, meatballs or any other Italian dishes as well. I love how thick and rich in flavour the sauce is. Sure you would too!
This recipe is enough for 3 x 10 inch pizza dough and it makes about 1 ½ cups in total.
What is in my no-cook pizza sauce
Tomato paste also know as tomato concentrate or tomato puree
Sugar: this is optional but recommended as this recipe only used a teaspoon of sugar which is safe and healthy in my opinion even if you are on a low carb diet. You may want to skip it if you are strictly on a keto diet.
Red pepper flakes or Tabasco sauce

- Not a fan of tomato paste or you do not have one at hand, use passata, or canned crushed tomatoes and the herbs, give it a quick mix and you are 10 minutes away from eating your homemade pizza.
If the sauce is too thin which might likely be, thicken it by cooking it over medium heat for some few minutes on the stove top to reduce to desired consistency.
- Add red pepper flakes to this sauce for some kick
- Make it sugar free to suit your dietary need
- Swap the passata for ketchup or barbeque sauce
