Homemade Pizza Sauce Recipe

For homemade pizza sauce recipe, we don’t need expensive or fancy ingredients. You will find all these ingredients readily available in every kitchen. We need onions, tomatoes, garlic, dry herbs, salt, and oil. That’s all.

15 minutes of your time and you will have preservative-free pizza and pasta sauce. Yes, I use the same sauce to make pasta too.

Pizza Sauce Ingredients

I will also use red bell pepper and fresh basil leaves in our pizza sauce recipe. Roasted bell pepper will add smoky flavor to our pizza sauce. And basil leaves will add the aroma and taste of pepper and mint in our homemade pizza sauce recipe.

Roasting Bell Peppers

Wash your bell peppers and roast them on a gas stove. Once done, immediately put them into a bowl of cold water and rub them to remove the burnt skin. Mesh them to make a puree of it.

Pizza Sauce with Tomato Paste

Heat oil in a pan. Add minced garlic and sauté it for 5 seconds. Now add chopped onion, tomatoes, basil, roasted bell pepper puree. Also, add all the dry spices mentioned in the ingredient list. Stir everything and cover the pan with a lid. Let it cook on a medium flame for about 5 minutes.

Pizza Sauce Recipe Ingredients

After about 5 minutes, open the lid. Check the seasoning and adjust accordingly. Switch off the flame. With the help of a hand blender, blend everything to a smooth sauce.

In case you don’t have an electric blender, potato masher can also serve the purpose. You need to blend all the ingredients to get sauce with a spreadable consistency.

Pizza Sauce

Our homemade pizza sauce is ready. Bring it to room temperature and transfer it into a sterilized glass jar. You can store this homemade pizza sauce in refrigerator for up to two weeks.
