A good pizza sauce recipe will have lots of natural ingredients. Using whole ingredients–from the produce section of your grocery store–will make a delicious and flavorful sauce. If you’re sure to use organic produce, you’ll make a pizza that’s healthful, natural, and genuinely good for you. Preparing a sauce from scratch will help show that you’re a good cook–most people can’t make pizza sauce happen. You and I are going to come up with a reason for you to brag. You made that sauce. We’re not going to grab the can opener. We grabbed some tomatoes and made delectable pizza. I’m stoked. I hope you are too.


Here’s what you’re going to need:

About 12 plum tomatoes, seeded, skinned, and pureed in a food processor
1 white onion, chopped fine
2 tablespoons of olive oil
2 tablespoons garlic

2 tablespoons sugar
1 tbsp salt
1/2 tablespoon red pepper
2 tablespoons minced garlic

Heat oil and sweat your onions and garlic. Your kitchen will start to smell pretty good.

Add the pureed tomatoes, along with the rest of the dry ingredients. Boil briefly, then reduce heat and simmer for six to eight hours.

There you have it! You’ve made all-natural an excellent pizza sauce, starting with ingredients that came right up out of the ground. Spread it lightly on some pizza dough–too much sauce will tend to make a soggy pizza. This recipe will make about four pizzas worth of sauce; you can refrigerate or freeze any leftovers for next time.
