Quick and Easy Uncooked Pizza Sauce

Like many of us, you may discover that every time you try a pizza sauce recipe, the result tastes like spaghetti or other pasta sauce, not what you are used to having on pizzas. If you suffer from this problem, you might be looking for an uncooked pizza sauce recipe! It may sound strange, but real Neapolitan pizza has a sauce that has never been cooked until it goes into the oven.

Seasoning is even avoided in some recipes. After all, the toppings can provide an excellent seasoning all on your own. This uncooked pizza sauce recipe uses a few seasonings, but you can adjust them to your own preferences. Try an uncooked pizza sauce and see what a difference it can make in your home cooked pizza. You will never go back to the stuff in a can after this.

Cooking pizza sauce can help blend the flavors and if you are making a sauce with a lot of different ingredients in it, the recipe might well instruct you to cook the mixture. This recipe is different though, because you just combine garlic, oregano and basil with canned tomatoes to make the sauce, and it will certainly not be lacking in flavor at all. If you want to sit it at room temperature for a while to blend the flavors, you can do that.

Perhaps make it before you make the pizza crust. This step is optional though, and most people will simply combine the ingredients, use the sauce to top their pizza and then add the toppings. Because Italians like to make their pizza sauce this way, you can be assured of an authentic result.
