Basic Oregano Pizza Sauce

    10 minutes

    It's good to have a basic pizza sauce on hand for quick dinners. It also freezes well - makes enough for four large pizzas.

    Altered ingredient amounts. For making 1 pizza- I recommend a 155g paste and a 250g sauce with a couple of tablespoons of olive oil. Why make more when you can make fresh so quickly. I also recommend using all dried herbs instead of fresh onion etc. It will blend better in the sauce. Also a tiny bit (1/2 teasp) vinegar will give it tang, and a little white sugar. I think the other spices you should taste for preference as you go along!  -  29 Sep 2008


    Used different ingredients. I tried this in a bind (ran out of store bought) My husband and I loved it! I cut the recipe in half since I was making a small pizza, added fresh basil and eliminated the tomato paste (I ran out of that too!) I will be using in place of store bought going forward. YUM!  -  29 Sep 2008


    It didn't come out very well, it tasted like "fake" spaghetti sauce.  -  29 Sep 2008
