Our family’s favorite homemade pizza sauce! Easy to assemble and also super flavorful with garlic, herbs, and a little tang.
This is our favorite homemade pizza sauce, and it’s been our go-to family recipe for years. It’s deliciously dense and flavor-packed with garlic, herbs, and not to mention a little delicious tang. I prefer my sauce on the thicker side, so add a little water or broth to thin to your own desired thickness.
Plus I love how the flavors beautifully intensify as it sits, so it’s also great made ahead of time – just cover and store in the fridge until you’re ready to use. (I like to use a small jar with a tight lid for refrigeration.) Hope you enjoy as much as we do and happy pizza partying! (I love it on this 30 Minute Vegan French Bread Pizza for a quick and easy weeknight meal.)
