Easy Pizza Sauce Recipe

Hopefully you aren’t tired of all the pizza talk yet. (My husband would say there is no such thing as too much pizza.) I promise we are almost done. I shared my tips for making pizza on a budget and my recipe for crust and tips for making the perfect pizza already. Today, I’m going to give you my easy pizza sauce recipe.

Let me tell you a secret. Pizza sauce is one of the easiest things to make and can be done in seconds. There is no need to purchase jarred sauce if you have basic spices in your pantry. I use tomato sauce. If you are out, tomato puree or another tomato based product would work.

Pizza sauce is one of those things I never measure ingredients on. I add a shake of this and a shake of that. The past few times I’ve made it, I’ve pulled out the measuring spoons to get this recipe. Feel free to switch it up and taste and adjust at the end. Sometimes I’ll add thyme and in the summer when I have fresh herbs I love to add them instead of dried ones.

I will make this easy pizza sauce recipe on Fridays with two 8 ounce cans of sauce and use half of it for two pizzas and then save the other half in the fridge to make pizza again the next week.

    This sounds simple and delicious. Those are two things that I really appreciate in a recipe! I would have never thought to add marjoram or fennel seeds. I’ll have to try this out!
