Pizza Sauce 1

Bottled pizza sauce works in a pinch, but they’ve all got a “commercial” flavor. Making sauce is easy enough, just gotta plan ahead so it has time to cool.

I’m calling this “Pizza Sauce 1” as I’ll probably use and/or invent other sauces in the future.

Pizza Sauce 1

  • 28 oz can crushed tomatoes
  • 1 tsp seasoned salt
  • 2 tsp dried oregano
  • 2 tsp dried basil
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp granulated garlic
  • 1 tsp Costco No-Salt Seasoning

Put all ingredients in a medium saucepan over medium heat. When it starts to bubble, turn down on very low and simmer 20 minutes, stirring every few minutes. Let cool an hour before using.


Edit: 07/06/2021 — added paprika and granulated garlic to the recipe.

This can be made with any type of tomato product, although IMO tomato sauce will produce a thin result. If the result is too chunky, use an immersion blender to make it smoother. I found that crushed tomatoes produced a great texture.

Any no-salt seasoning can be used, simply to add a bit of extra flavor.

Lorraine doesn’t like spicy. On my own, I’d add 1/4 to 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes.
