Our family’s favorite homemade pizza sauce! Easy to assemble and super flavorful with garlic, herbs, and a little tang!
Our favorite, easy homemade pizza sauce! This has been our family’s go-to recipe for years. It’s incredibly flavorful with garlic, herbs, and a little tang… YUM! This was one of the first recipes I posted on the blog (almost 6 years ago, wow!) so I wanted to give it a refresh. Since the flavors only intensify as it sits, it’s great made ahead of time so it’s ready to go when you are. (No worries if you didn’t think that far in advance though – happens to us all the time and it’s still great when used immediately.) The recipe makes enough for one extra-large pizza or several smaller English muffin/pita pizzas. Hope you enjoy as much as we do. Happy pizza partying!
PS – how adorable are these little jars!? See them here on Amazon if you’re interested. (The smaller size is great for sauces and things like this as they each hold about a cup.)
Easy Homemade Pizza Sauce
Our family's favorite homemade pizza sauce! Easy to assemble and super flavorful with garlic, herbs, and a little tang!
- 6 oz. can tomato paste
- 1-3 cloves garlic (depending on how much you like garlic)
- 2-3 Tbsp. water (more to thin if desired)
- 1 Tbsp. red wine vinegar
- 1/4 tsp. dried basil
- 1/4 tsp. dried oregano
- 1/8 tsp. cumin
- Salt to taste
- Finely mince garlic.
- Add all ingredients to a small bowl and stir well to combine.
- Can use immediately, but the flavor is best if you let it sit for about 30 minutes. (Or make ahead of time and refrigerate until ready!)
Recipe yields about 1 cup sauce. I like my sauce on the thicker side (this one is pretty dense), so simply add more water to thin if desired!
