Classic Homemade Pizza Sauce

Classic Homemade Pizza Sauce

Classic Homemade  Pizza Sauce. This super thick and rich sauce is my new go-to red sauce. Use it for meatball subs, eggplant or chicken parmesan, or just for dipping breadsticks. it’s a quick, easy, all-purpose red sauce.

HOW TO PREPARE CLASSIC HOMEMADE PIZZA SAUCE

Over a medium heat, add the olive oil and garlic to a sauce pot and cook for 1-2 minutes, or just until the garlic is soft and fragrant.

Add the crushed tomatoes, tomato paste, sugar, salt, basil, oregano, some freshly cracked pepper (10-15 cranks of a pepper mill), and a pinch of red pepper flakes. Stir to combine.

Cover the pot, allow the pot to come to a simmer, then reduce the heat to low, and let simmer for 15 minutes minimum, or up to 30 minutes.

 

 

FAQS

CAN PIZZA SAUCE BE FROZEN?

Yes! If this batch is more sauce than you need to make your pizza for one meal, go ahead and freeze the remainder. I suggest using a quart-sized freezer bag. 

To reheat, just tear away the freezer bag and empty the frozen sauce into a small sauce pot. Reheat over low, stirring often, until it is heated through.
