Tomato purée, olive oil, garlic and dried spices sit for hours to let the flavours blend in this uncooked pizza sauce. The thickness of the sauce depends on the amount of water used; it should be thick enough to spread and hold on the base.
Make a large batch of this pizza sauce ahead of time, and freeze in small portions - just enough for 1 or 2 pizzas. Then you'll have homemade pizza sauce on hand whenever you need it!
Altered ingredient amounts. This is a very good sauce. I have tried quite a few and this is my husband’s favourite. I cut the water amount in half because of other recommendations, I highly recommend this or the sauce will be very thin and watery. I also add a ½ teaspoon of sugar. We make this now once a week! - 21 Jul 2008
Altered ingredient amounts. Thanks for the recipe......to make it a quick sauce, cut the water down to 225ml and the oil down to 4T......simmer for 15 minutes and add flour to bind the oil, water and tomato and spices.....a fast pizza sauce that's ready while your dough is rising! - 21 Jul 2008
Something else. We've found it tastes much better if we make it the night before and let the flavours blend in the fridge overnight. - 21 Jul 2008
