Pizza Sauce

3 posts in this topic

Since reading the recent pizza dough post, I have been hooked on making homemade pizza. What are your favorite sauce recipes?

Here is mine:

2 Tablespoons olive oil

1 Tablespoon butter

1/2 cup onion, chopped

1/4 cup celery, chopped

1 garlic clove, minced

1 (8 oz can) tomato sauce

1 (6 oz can) tomato paste

2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese

1 teaspoon dried basil

1 teaspoon dried oregano

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon sugar

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

In large skillet, melt butter with oil. Add onion, celery, garlic and saute until soft.

Add tomato sauce and tomato paste. Stir.

Add remaining ingredients and simmer 30-60 minutes.

Enough for about 2 pizzas. I often double or triple the recipe and then freeze the leftovers.

This is my favorite.

6 oz can tomato paste

3/4 C water.....I use tomato juice or V8.But water will work

1/3 C olive oil

3 cloves garlic


1/2 Tbs Oregano

1/2 Tbs Basil

1/2 Tbs Rosemary

Heat on the stove and then let it stand for a couple hours to blend.

I make about a dozen pints of this with Roma garden tomatoes every year and can it.16 ounces will make 2 medium pizzas.

Yup, those all sound like tasty recipes. In general, I do pretty much the same thing...start with a can of diced tomatoes and a can of tomato paste. When making pizza sauce versus a lasagna or pasta sauce, the key for me is to use more paste than diced tomatoes. I also let it simmer for a good hour or so to reduce it down to a thicker pizza sauce.

As for the garlic, onions, and spices, I like to do a little of everything that I see. It's always a little different each time.

    • I'm talking about safety and overdoses in general, not so much extreme pain. No experience, you?
    • Asked the remaining 5 ladies 0/5 none of them buy a tag but 4/5 husbands hunt. Not calling tip could turn in the mayor of the town etc. Will let a higher power decide their fate for killing gods creatures needlessly in time. All of you that can lie on here and act like you know no 1 bending the rules cmon. Your baitpiles should work good this year in a no or low acorn year. I just pray your gun jams or the scope falls off. 
    • Good God!! And these people actually  vote   "No one ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of American people"  H. L. Mencken
    • Meh, I don't think I've seen a Hillary sign in the metro. Not many Trump signs either. Still seeing some Bernie bumper stickers though.    
    • I did a little right up on my 2016 season on fishing minnesota. I will post the link here.    Click here
    • Article titled "Grifters-in-chief" is from Wall Street Journal... (duh)   In regards to zero Hedge. Your quote: "Critics have noted". Original Wikipedia quote (your source?) : "Critics have alleged"....   Your little twist ??    Also Zero-Hedge, more than anything else, is an investors page. Their political articles are always linked to their original source.   again...(duh)  
    • Interesting observation up on the Iron Range and North. The lack of Hillary Clinton signs. U know lots will be votin blue, but yet no one wants to display it.  Lack of enthusiasm? Embarrassment due to union vs 2nd amendment conflict ? Plenty of Mills, Nolan, and local  candidate signs up EVERYWHERE.... yet...
    • Ohh.. How a bout a positive spin for Getaclue and little bobby. Both having a hard time digesting the death spiral of the clinton crime machine.    
    • You guys ever notice how many articles Uncle Bill posts from Zero Hedge, such as his last two articles (some have pseudonym Tyler Durden as the author, some don’t list any author or source at all but you can tell by the links)? If you do any research on that site you’ll find it was founded by Daniel Ivandjiiski, a Bulgarian-born former hedge-fund analyst who was barred from the industry for insider trading (and one of its main writers). One of its three other main writers left earlier this year, and “described the site's political content as "disingenuous," summarizing its political stances as "Russia=good. Obama=one-who-thinks-I-am-silly. Bashar al-Assad=benevolent leader. John Kerry=dunce. Vladimir Putin=greatest leader in the history of statecraft.) Critics have noted it aligns closely with Soviet propaganda.   This is where Uncle Bill gets most of his information. From a blog which tries to remain anonymous, founded and written by a Bulgarian, which one of its own writers had to leave because he couldn't take how it peddles Russian views of the world and U.S. politics.
