Homemade Pizza Sauce

Homemade Pizza Sauce

Okay…so honestly, I didn’t think I could make my own pizza sauce.  I suppose I thought there was some magic ingredient or something.  However, when I ran out a few weeks ago, and realized I had dozens of jars of tomatoes in my pantry that I painstakingly grew and canned…I did a little research…(yay internet)…and came up with this…

Pizza Sauce

  • 28 oz can of whole tomatoes, drained (drain them WELL)
  • 1 T olive oil
  • 1 t. red wine vinegar
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 t. salt
  • 1 t. oregano
  • 1 t. basil
  • 1/4 t. ground black pepper

Drain your tomatoes very, very, very, very well…I even patted mine down with a towel to get more moisture off.  Add all ingredients to a food processor or blender…purree…and DONE!  I had no idea it was this EASY!  As a fair warning, it is not quite as thick or as deep red as traditional pizza sauce….if that’s important to you and yours, I think some tomato paste added would help.  However, we didn’t mind!  This makes enough for two pizza’s, or give you some extra for dipping sauce.  I froze my extra for an easy pizza next time!

We put our new pizza sauce on our homemade whole wheat crust…topped with all of our favorite things!

My kids NEVER complain about this dinner!  Winning!

  2. I don’t know about the wine vinegar one way or the other, but as for the rest of the sauce, at least you don’t have all those “unpronounceable” ingredients in your pizza!
    A dining favorite of ours in San Jose served pizza only on weekends, and they offered a whole-wheat crust. Yummy! Very easy to over-indulge on a large meat-lovers pizza on whole wheat. The spices and the taste of the crust went together really well. I can see why your kids gobble it up… or down!!!
