We have pizza at our house usually once a week, never take out because homemade pizza is so dang good. One of the elements of homemade pizza that can be so over complicated is the sauce. For a long time I worked on trying to perfect a pizza sauce by slaving over the stove, spending an hour trying to simmer a perfect sauce and for so many reasons this didn’t work.
First and foremost I don’t want to spend an hour making pizza sauce, second reason even though I would spend an hour making sauce I still was never crazy about it on my pizza. So I took a big step back and took my sauce in a different direction, simple.
Once I went simple, I never went back. 5 minute pizza sauce has made pizza night so much better at our house. It is as simple as mixing all of the ingredients in a bowl and you are ready to make your pizza. Voila, pizza here we come.
It is seriously as easy as adding tomato sauce, olive oil, sugar, salt, and a combination of Italian seasonings into a bowl or jar or container and mixing it together. I often like to use Tupperware to mix it together because I will prepare it beforehand and that way it just goes straight into the fridge until I am ready to use it. It keeps it super simple!
This recipe is for real made in my house almost every week and we thoroughly enjoy it every time. So made your next homemade pizza night a little easier with this 5 minute pizza sauce!
TIPS & TRICKS:
As easy as this recipe is, customize it to your taste, I like to add a little extra black pepper sometimes for an extra kick or some dried basil for a little added sweetness
It might be tempting to skip the sugar but don’t, it really takes away the bitter bite from the tomatoes
For the best homemade pizza invest in a pizza stone, they make pizza night at home about 110% better
