My homemade pizza sauce

We absolutely love pizza!  It is always my go to meal when im driving home late from work.  Well I decided one night that I was going to make pizza at home.  I thought I had some jarred sauce in the pantry but apparently not.  So thank heavens for Google to save the day!  This sauce was fantastic and quick, the best part is I had all the ingredients at home already.
 

Homemade Pizza Sauce

1 can tomato suace
1 can tomato paste
2 garlic gloves
1 Tbsp dried oregano
2 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp sugar

My Notes:
This recipe makes a lot of sauce so I placed the extra sauce in ice cube trays and froze.  When frozen I popped out and placed in a ziploc bag.  Put in microwave for a few seconds to defrost when needed.  Stays fresh in air tight container for 2 weeks in fridge or 3 months in freezer.

  3. Found you through Social Sundays. Do you just mix the ingredients together and use or do you need to simmer? Love the simple list of ingredients!

  4. All you need to do is mix it all together! SO simple and easy!
    Let me know how you like it.

  5. another question about the sugar… why is that included? it’s a small amount in this recipe but just curious. i don’t like sweet sauce or added sugar so i wonder if i could omit it without sacrificing other flavors.

    • Hey Katie, I think you could completely omit the sugar. If you have great strawberries I think it should taste fine. The only thing i noticed with the sugar, when it sat on the counter for the hour the strawberries broke down a bit and made a juice. But I still think it will be fine without. Let me know when you try it.
