Personally, I like easy recipes. This simple pizza sauce recipe is a good place to start if you are new to making your own sauce.

It includes very basic ingredients like garlic, onion and seasonings, but also gives you the option to use fresh, chopped tomatoes or canned tomatoes.

Or try these easy Pizza Hut sauce recipe.

Just like with pizza dough recipes, you may have to try making pizza sauce several different ways until you get the flavor exactly how you like it.

Here are a few tips and ideas to get you thinking...

Sauce doesn't have to be cooked first.
Not all sauce has to be cooked. Try dicing some tomatoes and adding a little salt (1 tsp to 6 cups of diced tomatoes), Refrigerate overnight. Drain liquid, drizzle with olive oil and toss with some basil, and freshly ground black pepper. Delicious!


Puree tomatoes in the blender, add some seasoning, and spread onto your crust before popping into the oven.

Don't overcook the sauce (remember, it will bake in the oven too). If you are cooking your sauce, you can whip it up on the stovetop in 15 minutes. Or, cook it slow and low to combine all of those great flavors. Just throw your ingredients in the crock pot on low and go have fun.

Keep it simple. Drizzle olive oil and spread roasted garlic on your crust instead of cooking traditional tomato pizza sauce.

Think outside the box. Experiment with different flavors such as barbeque sauce, soy sauce, salsa, refried beans, pesto and even horseradish for your pizza sauce.

  • (Tip: drain canned tomatoes of excess liquid so your sauce doesn't get too thin.)

Enjoy learning how to make pizza sauce ...have fun with it!
