Homemade Pizza Sauce from Scratch

"I noticed that most (all?) the pizza sauce recipes call for either tomato paste or tomato sauce or both. I wanted to do it from scratch! So I experimented until I got it right. This is much better than the store-bought sauce with none of those nasty preservatives."

  1. Place tomatoes, water, and olive oil in a blender or food processor; blend until smooth. Transfer tomato mixture to a large pot.
  2. Stir sugar, garlic salt, and vinegar into tomato mixture and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until thickened, 1 to 2 hours, stirring occasionally.
  3. Pour tomato sauce into a clean blender or food processor no more than half full. Cover and hold lid down; pulse a few times before leaving on to blend. Puree in batches until tomato sauce is very smooth.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • This should yield enough for about 8 12-inch pizzas where you need about 6 tablespoons sauce per pizza. You can put what you don't use in plastic bags in the freezer. I put 6 tablespoons sauce into 8 separate bags. Just run hot water over the bag to thaw.

I've tried this recipe in the past and my only complaint is that it is a little sweet. I'm going to try it again today and ex the sugar.

Sickeningly sweet.

My suggestion now is to hold off on garlic salt and sugar until the end, and then add it to taste.

It's WAY too salty! Great start to a basic recipe.

This recipe is very very sweet. Too sweet for traditional pizza, but just right as a dipping sauce (for cheese breads, Italian breads, etc.). This sauce would work well for fruit based pizzas li...

I reduced the sugar some, and it still had a nice flavor. I also sprinkled some Italian seasoning to taste.

I saw that many reviewers cut back on the sugar, so I did as well and used brown sugar as that is what I grew up watching my mom use. I like more sauce on my pizza and felt it did not yield enou...

I have been making this for ages but with 1/2 the sugar and using coconut sugar instead its awesome
