Doesn’t everyone like pizza? I sure do. And once in a while I just need to whip together a pie and enjoy! Of course, one night when I was craving a pizza, I was pulling out all of the ingredients and realized that I didn’t have any pizza sauce. Of course, I also try to do as much as I can to do everything from scratch. So I created this homemade pizza sauce recipe…and it turned out really well!

The best part was that I knew exactly what was going into it! No label reading or hidden ingredients that I didn’t want. Just simple, clean…and tasty too!

There is nothing quite so delicious as a fresh, handmade pizza with high-quality toppings. And making a pizza at home gives you control over exactly what ingredients go into your pizza so that everything is nice and fresh. This pizza sauce recipe is quick and satisfying. The flavors are well-balanced and downright delicious!

It really allowed me to enjoy eating pizza without feeling guilty about it like I sometimes do with fast-food pizzas.

Serve this homemade pizza sauce with our Whole Wheat Pizza Crust recipe or a great gluten-free crust! For grain-free you can always try a tasty grain-free cauliflower crust.
