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 can of crushed tomatoes you are only minutes away from creating your own pizza sauce that is budget friendly and delicious. The craving for this pizza sauce is unreal, which is why you will find pizza of some sort listed on our family meal plan quite often.
Homemade Pizza Sauce is so easy to make. All you need are a few spices and a can of crushed tomatoes. Keeping these ingredients on hand and you'll always be ready to cook when that pizza craving hits.
- 1/2 tsp basil
- 1/2 tsp oregano
- 1/2 tsp paprika
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
- 1 tbsp brown sugar
- 1 can 28 oz. Crushed Tomatoes
In a bowl, pour out the can of crushed tomatoes.
To the crushed tomatoes add the remaining ingredients and stir until thoroughly 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.
- This sauce also makes for a great dipping sauce for breadsticks if you warm it up on the stove before serving.
