One of my families newest favorite dinners is homemade pizza. We used to be all about those frozen or take and bake pizzas that you can purchase at the grocery store. But since meal planning, I’ve decided to switch up our pizza nights a bit and make our pizzas from scratch. Not only is homemade pizza delicious but it is also a fraction of the cost of take out.
The key to making a delicious pizza at home is a good pizza sauce recipe. With a few spices and a small can of tomato paste you are only minutes away from creating your own pizza sauce that is budget friendly.
Homemade Pizza Sauce Recipe
1 1/2 tsp Italian Seasoning
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp minced garlic
1 cup water
1 can tomato paste
In a bowl, combine both the water and tomato paste until smooth. Then stir in italian seasoning, paprika, salt, onion powder, and minced garlic until well combined. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use to top your homemade pizza. This recipe makes enough to sauce about 3 medium sized pizzas depending on how much sauce you like on your pizza.
Note: this sauce also makes for a great dipping sauce for breadsticks if you warm it up on the stove before serving.
