So you're wanting a really quick, healthy, easy pizza sauce to keep in the fridge for when you've been at work all day and come home ready to rustle up a homemade pizza or pasta. Or you've bought too many tomatoes. Or you've grown too many tomatoes. This is the tomato pizza sauce recipe for these situations. Is pizza sauce the same as pasta sauce? They are basically very similar but a pizza sauce would generally be quite thick so it won't run off the crust or steam the base as it's cooking. This tomato sauce recipe goes well with pasta too. According to some sources, many restaurants use a single fresh tomato sauce for both their pizza sauce and tomato pasta sauce dishes
Fresh tomatoes and garlic are the key to this simple delicious pizza sauce. It's difficult to find a ready made jar of sauce that doesn't contain added sugar. But you can make this in bulk and it also freezes really well.
The seasoning for pizza sauce is easy. Fresh basil is lovely, but it will still be great if you are using dried herbs too.
Simmer gently untll you see the sauce becomes thick enough to use. When you add the tomato puree it will thicken up slightly more.
You can use it immediately and it's beautiful, but if you keep it in the fridge overnight then the flavors develop even more.
Here's our simple and easy pizza dough recipe.
