Quick and Simple Pizza Sauce

Quick and Simple Pizza Sauce

Many people make the mistake of believing that a great pizza sauce has to have lots of ingredients, but that is not true at all. What it really all boils down to is that ingredient quality is most important. You cannot disguise low quality under a lot of heavy spices and toppings. If you choose the right basic things to make up your pizza, you will get a great result.

Here is a wonderful simple pizza sauce recipe from a real pizza shop owner. It might not seem like there is much to it, but there really does not need to be. Use good tomatoes and other ingredients, and the result will be fantastic. You will stop worrying about all those other, more complex recipes and leave them for spaghetti sauce instead.

Simple Pizza Sauce Made Easy

Ingredients –

1 twenty-eight ounce can peeled Italian tomatoes with juice
4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
salt to taste


In a large saucepan, bring tomatoes, salt, and olive oil to a simmer.

Cook for fifteen to twenty minutes, stirring occasionally, until thickened.

It may be necessary to crush tomatoes against the side of the pan or to simmer for longer if your tomatoes are particularly watery.

Be sure to allow the sauce to cool before you use it on pizza dough, and cool entirely before freezing.

(Makes 2 ½ cups, or tops 3 to 5 pizzas)
