How To: Prepare basic pizza sauce

Prepare basic pizza sauce

Forget cooking pizza sauce… you don't need to cook it. If you're in a hurry, this pizza sauce recipe is the way to go. You basically just add a little tomato paste to some tomato sauce, which thickens the sauce up and gives it a nice texture. Then add some garlic and oregano. Salt and pepper to taste, but be careful not to add too much! This pizza sauce can last for about a week, so no need to rush anymore than you have to, but the longer it sits, the better it tastes!

From how2heroes:

"Really good, rich and flavorful pizza sauce should be pure and simple. Remon Karian of Fiorella's shows us how it's done. No frills. Just a few key ingredients get the job done. Give it a try on Remon's Easy Pizza Dough and then let him walk you through the finishing touches with Pizza 101."
