Easy Pizza Sauce Recipe
If you want to know how to make pizza sauce recipes, this recipe is simple enough for a pizza-making beginner. This easy pizza sauce recipe features herbs, garlic, onion and tomato paste to result in a sweet and tangy sauce, which you can use on your preferred kind of pizza crust and top with whichever ingredients you like.
This easy pizza sauce recipe can be halved if you do not need to make so much at the same time. Possible toppings, which would go nicely with this sauce, might be cheese, pineapple, tuna, shrimp, pepperoni, sweet corn, mushrooms, or chicken but you can use any toppings on this easy pizza sauce recipe.
Making it could not be simpler. Just put the ingredients in a pot and bring the mixture to a boil, then give it a good stir and simmer it for 10 minutes. Because it needs to cool for 10 minutes, you can use that time to prepare your pizza dough or chop the ingredients for the topping.
This recipe calls for dried oregano, basil, parsley and onion, but if you prefer to use fresh then go ahead. The onion can be minced and go straight into the sauce but because fresh herbs lose much of their flavor if they are cooked you might want to add these a minute or 2 before the end of the cooking time, rather than at the beginning, to ensure they remain aromatic and bright green.
- 2 cups water
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1 teaspoon dried basil
- 3 tablespoons dried parsley flakes
- 4 teaspoons dried onion flakes
- 2 cloves garlic
- 12 oz tomato paste
- Combine the parsley, onion, tomato paste, garlic, basil, water, and oregano in a 2-quart pan.
- Cook over a medium heat until the mixture boils.
- Turn the heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes.
- Allow to cool for 10 minutes then spread on to your pizza crust.
Nothing beats the flavor of a homemade pizza sauce. When you see your pizza for the first time, the toppings are what you will notice first, the color of them, how many there are, and how generously they are arranged on each slice of pizza. Next you will take your first bite and appreciate the crust, whether it is hard or soft, chewy or not, and also the flavor of the toppings. But we are missing something – the sauce of course! Pizza sauce is not only to form a barrier between the crust and toppings and add moisture, but it is a key part of a good pizza, which is why making your own is such a good idea, because you will be able to create something fresh-tasting and delicious, to complement the pizza further.
