How to Make Pizza Sauce – Hot and Spicy Version
If you want to know how to make pizza sauce recipes, it is easier than you might have thought. Homemade pizza sauces always taste better than pre-prepared sauces and it is usually quick and easy to make your own.
The following spicy pizza sauce recipe contains plenty of tomatoes as well as onion, a dash of white wine, oregano and some hot red pepper for a spicy kick. This pizza sauce would go well with hearty meat topping, such as salami, pepperoni, cheese, and sausage for example. Alternatively, you could use vegetables as a topping for a spicy vegetarian pizza recipe.
It is possible to buy a readymade pizza sauce from the store, even a spicy one, or buy a regular tomato sauce and then add some hot sauce yourself, but if you really want the best flavor, then you are going to have to make your own. This is a quick and easy process, and you will be combining high quality ingredients to make a wonderful-tasting sauce that will work with any pizza crust recipe and toppings.
As well as the crushed tomatoes and tomato paste, this recipe calls for other fragrant ingredients to ensure a spicy kick but also a well-balanced flavor. Taste this once and you will definitely want to make it again and again.

A lot of pizzas are topped with simple tomato sauce, or even something basic like tomato paste. On top of that go the toppings and that can make a tasty enough pizza, but you are missing something? If you are bored with your usual pizza sauce, try this one for size. The slightly spicy kick will tantalize your taste buds while the herb, wine and garlic flavors combine in perfect harmony to bring you something exquisite which will work on any kind of pizza crust, forming a layer between the crust and the toppings, and adding an attractive red color to the pizza as well.
